Here's a close-up of part of a hallway wall. I used a goldish color, a burgundy, and a green, that picked up colors in the furnishings and rugs. I used a sponge to wash the colors onto the wall in patches, covering the entire wall. They were applied very thin and transparent so the darker colors wouldn't overpower.

Then sponged over with three different tan/cream colors.

The secret to making this work is having all the colors very close in value. The burgundy was the darkest so I applied it very lightly, just enough to have a suggestion of it, which you can see in this pic.

You know how pics are Ruth.... they often don't do justice to the work, especially with faux finishes! I wish I could see this in real life!
