Lao Motifs in our Winnipeg House

Some of the ancient buildings in Laos 
like temples and monuments 
are painted a deep red color 
and then stenciled with gold leaf.  
We always loved how that looked.

So we painted our sun room a color called
 "Louisiana Hot Sauce" and
stenciled a traditional Lao motif (pattern) onto it.
The flash makes it look orange in the photo but
in real life it looks red.
If you look carefully in the photo from Laos,
you can see the pattern we chose.  
It's the main pattern in the foundation.
