Looking Up

This ceiling from the February 2011 issue of House Beautiful is so amazing! The designer is Gideon Mendelson, and he aptly describes the house as “a traditional [one], that also throws off sparks.” A gingham ceiling is definitely a “spark” in my opinion! I love the contrast of the white walls with the ceiling – a wonderful way to liven up a traditional pattern and call attention to the grand height of the ceiling.

I love the idea of painted ceilings, especially in nurseries where babies spend so much time looking up!

There are so many striped and “tented” rooms, but this House Beautiful one is the first I’ve seen in gingham! I love it!
