Here I started pretty much with a blank canvas. The desire was to come up with something simple but at the same time create a feeling of a medieval castle. Little bit of paint and some additional touches achieved this nicely.

Here is the room before:

I decided to use the original painted walls as backdrop and add squares in slightly different hue. I used large squares – 2′X2′ for making this project easier and faster to implement, but also to make the room seem larger than it is.  After the room was painted, I made a mock-up with the bedding and window treatments I was going to use, to see if all these elements would work together.

Tip – notice how the squares flow inside the corners. First of it looks better this way but also this allows to adjust the sizes of the squares to pleasing proportions, as your room width most likely does not divide exactly to your room height.

and here is the room done:

If you have any specific questions about this project that has not been answered yet, I am happy to provide the information.
