It was my pleasure to work with Karol Standford and her family on their new home. As I was looking at paint colors for their rooms, I struck by the beautiful artwork that was displayed. I wanted to the paint to highlight the art, but not overwhelm it. I decided to paint the ceiling in the foyer. It added a cozy element to the massive home and tied in with the art work through out.
The ceiling represents one-sixth of the space in a room, but too often it gets nothing more than a coat of white paint. In fact, for decades, white has been considered not only the safest but also the best choice for ceilings.
From the family room, you can see the rich color in the dining room and a hint of the foyer ceiling paint. The pillows are fun on this neutral couch – but you cannot overlook the gorgeous artwork!
