Our soffitt looks like this in the master- A band of black paint creates a headboard and modernizes the room with century proportions and moldings creatively and inexpensively, at the Praktik Rambla, in the historic Casa Climent Arola building, Barcelona.
I love the idea of a natural landscape superimposed in ultra clean design. I had grand plans to paint gold bamboo on my green bedroom walls. This is infinitely more elegant. And doesn't involve the ACTUAL outdoors.
