Grisaille

I'm sort of craving some grisaille.  I'm picturing a large single panel to rev up the volume on my white slipcovered furniture.  Grisaille is a term used to describe the painting of walls and wallpapers in monochromatic shades of grays and browns.  For me, it is the most sophisticated and elegant style of mural painting.  Covering the walls of an entire room or just a single framed panel, grisaille adds drama, dimension and depth to a space.
