The Mix: Ceiling Accents to Envy, Part 2

A plain white often stands out in an otherwise elegant room.  Why do so many people forget what’s above their heads?

Last time we focused on applied trim. This time we’re getting even more creative.

I designed these modified coffers for the Jones Homes Homearama 2018 house.  They were installed by Mike Terrell of River City Constructors.  I used Sherwin Williams Comfort Grey to accent them and set the room apart in this open floor plan. Notice how the subtle color creates boundaries without overwhelming the rest of the decor.

These more traditional coffers were also installed by Mike Terrell of River City Constructors.  I used reclaimed wood “skins” from E.T. Moore to really make them stand out and to tie in the reclaimed wood beams in the adjacent kitchen.

We brought out the best in this vaulted tray ceiling by using a wallpaper with a washed wood look to it.  Barden’s Decorating completed the tricky installation, ensuring perfect coverage on the mitered corners.

In this master bedroom, I accented the tray ceiling with a metallic wallpaper. It adds a hint of glamour that doesn’t overpower the peaceful, airy style.

Stay tuned!  This groin vault framing is so intense and it’s a work in progress.  I can’t wait to get it finished!
