Fancy Ceiling Details

It is a coincidence that all these living rooms share similarly ornate details on the ceiling. I love them for many other reasons as well. Of course the above room’s ceiling medallion is fabulous. In addition it has amazing black walls perfectly balanced with pink decor. A light ceiling, light floor, and big door letting in natural light also help to balance out all the black. Things to keep in mind if you decide to try black walls.

More pink! All over! Does this room say “princess” to you? It doesn’t to me, which is worth nothing since most people think pink walls should be reserved for a little girl’s room.

The ornate detailing on this ceiling feels very appropriate in this glamorous room. Isn’t this an amazing mix of traditional architecture and modern decor? I just can’t get over that gold filigree molding on the ceiling. I might stare at it all day if I lived here.

    Thank you for enriching our day yet again. I also appreciate having my vocabulary enhanced by the term filigree.

      Haha, you’re welcome! Filigree is indeed a good word.

    Ceilings tend to get overlooked! We put clear varnished maple on our very high vaulted living room ceiling and it made the room so much warmer and interesting.

      That is seriously cool, Kimber. And you’re absolutely right that in real life ceilings are usually overlooked. It’s a whole fifth wall to work with! 🙂
