What is the fifth wall? It is your ceiling. So often we take care of floors, furnishing and windows but leave a project incomplete. Your ceiling is an integral part of the "emotional
envelope" that we are trying to create. . . it is the FEELING we want to evoke the minute you enter a space.
You have already seen 2 key elements of the redesign of this dining room: the walls ( http://www.hometalk.com/activity/114791) and the columns ( http://www.hometalk.com/activity/93928). Now here is a close look at the third element. . . the ceiling!
This home had beautiful carvings on the ceiling and an elaborate medallion. We needed to show them off. They were painted with many tones of bronze and gold that were inspired by tones in the light fixtures and window treatments. To tie it all together, these same colors were used on the capitals and bases of the columns.
Very few of us have ceilings with such elaborate details. But the addition of a color other than white and a simple ceiling medallion is a cost effective way to draw your eye up and complete a space.

my favorite- DH installed rope lighting on a dimmer switch for ambient lighting on the ceiling during movie nights. Very cool feature and very easy to create with a little trim and some paint. You can see more photos here at my blog: http://unskinnyboppy.blogspot.com/2011/12/fi...
