Ceilings

I love that there’s a bit of a trend to pay more attention to the ceiling. I like to refer to it as a “fifth wall,” and to take just as much time to plan a design for it as I would any of the other four walls.  Creating a design for the ceiling can help it stand out or keep a space from looking incomplete with a blank “wall”.

Obviously, the brick ceiling in the Architectural Digest photo is part of the overall building – it’s a former tannery from the 18th century now owned by Andrew Fisher and Jeffry Weisman. But what a statement!

You can create your own statement ceilings, though, with a little planning. The nailhead design on the ceiling by Simple Designs is a stunner. If that seems like it’s too difficult or time consuming for you, consider even just a painted ceiling in a pop of color, like the one below from Swedish designer Johnny Andersson.
