Who says ceilings must be plain? Go wild with color and design

Our kitchen ceiling

With a little paint (okay, a lot of paint) and some talent (okay, our friend Mary is a professional) and inspiration from Frank Lloyd Wright we were able to transform our plain white ceiling into something much more interesting.

Our design starts on the ceiling and then continues down the wall. Christe drew the original “pattern” (and also designed the curvy lighting fixture). We used all of the colors from our house, both interior and exterior to achieve the wild boldness. The purples are from our bedroom and sitting room, the yellows and golds from the living/dining room and hallway, the green from the exterior and the dark blue from the office/library/music room.
