Q: I love everything about this photograph from the current Real Simple, but most of all I'm wondering what kind of paint effect is used on this wall, and is it easy for a relative amateur to try at home? Also, this image made me rush out to buy linen sheets, only to realize how very expensive they can be. Is there a good source of affordable linen bedding out there?
