Ever heard of boiseries? You have probably seen the technique somewhere, but it has never been shown properly. The technology is nothing more than clad walls with frames originally made of wood.
The Boiserie – pronounced Boaserri – was created in France, influenced by the artistic movement that became known as Rococo. The great goal of the carpenters at that time was to decorate the walls of the nobility in a pompous and refined manner. The seventeenth and eighteenth centuries mark the height of the boiseries in decoration.
Since then, technology has undergone many changes to adapt to current needs and styles that are now called the wrong boiserie. In addition to the wood, the boiseries were made with plaster, cement and even styrofoam in order to reduce costs. Regardless of the material chosen, the boiserie shows the same result that will distinguish one boiserie from the other: the color with which it is painted and the format that is applied to the wall.
As it is a classic style technique, it is very important to define the rest of the decoration of the environment so that the space is not overloaded with visual information. It is also possible to determine whether the boiserie will have a classic or contemporary style from the look of the frames. In general, arabesques and detailed or rounded edges attract the classic look, even the straight lines of the straight lines refer to the modern style.
Boiserie: knows what it is, how to use it and adorn 60 ideas
Be that as it may, the boiseries always add a touch of sophistication and sophistication to the surroundings. However, some details need to be evaluated well to ensure the expected effect. So, read the tips below before using the technique at home.
Tips for using boiserie in decoration
- It is important to apply acrylic paint to boiseries made from materials such as plaster and polystyrene to make them more resistant and long-lasting.
- Do not confuse boiseries with rodaments – the effect that divides the wall in half by a horizontal frame – or with wood paneling glued to the wall. They are very different things from each other.
- If you choose a wall plate, consider the height of the right foot of the house. Any effect that divides and intersects spaces tends to flatten and reduce the right foot. If your home has a low right foot, you should replace the boiseries with another effect. If you intend to use the technology at any cost, you can install it up to 85 cm above the floor.
- Break away from the formal, ornate look of the boiseries by putting more relaxed and creative pieces on the wall, such as pictures, posters, or other washer lighting.
- Compensate for the classic Boiseries style with contemporary elements in the decoration. It is worth using furniture of modern design, printed fabrics, differentiated lamps, among others.
- Now that you have bought a property and won to toast the boiseries without wanting that detail in the house, you can change the look of them with colored paint.
- If one wall is coated with boiseries, the others do not have to be coated. The technology alone is already striking and expressive and excessive use can have a negative impact on the environment.
- It is most common and recommended to paint the frames in the same color as the wall to avoid combination errors or excessive information on the wall. Uniformity also values the reliefs of technology. However, if you want to paint the frames of a different color, choose a color that doesn’t have as much contrast to the background.
- Take all measures, calculate and plan everything thoroughly. The big secret of the boiseries is the harmonious distribution of the frames. Therefore, every care is little.
- For a perfect finish, keep in mind that the corners of the frames must be sewn at a 45-degree angle.
- To leave the most modern boiseries, the tip is to use strong colors. However, if you want to keep the classic style, use bright and neutral colors.
- Boiseries can be used in any room in the house: in the bedrooms, in the kitchen, in the living room and even in the bathroom. The goal is that it differentiates one model from the other.
- Although boiseries are a technique created to decorate and enrich the decoration of rooms, it is most recommended today to avoid the excesses of the eighteenth-century French nobility by opting for a cleaner frame with straight and smooth lines.
