Black Ceiling Love



Ugh. I love every single thing about this photo. When I own my own home I am DEFINITELY using this as my inspiration photo. No need to look any further! This is IT. Of course I'll add my own little touches to make it even more me but this is pretty darn close to perfect. Let me list exactly what I love about this room:

  • It's classic but modern. It's modern but warm.
  • The black ceiling. So unexpected but it works!
  • The full curtains.
  • The medallion on the ceiling. It's ridiculously ornate & unusual. Love.
  • The dark wood floors.
  • The oversized light fixture.
  • ALL OF THE MOLDING.
  • The quirky brass candle holders (I definitely prefer brass to chrome)
And the hot pink flowers on the table. Love. Yes. I'm in love with this room. And can you believe it looked like THIS before??? Isn't that incredible? It doesn't even look like that same room. An amazing transformation, don't you agree? Gives me hope that the little fixer upper I hope to one day own will, with a little elbow grease, turn out just fine.

Have a great weekend! We're expecting up to 6c (a whopping 43f) and I can't wait!

p.s. If you have any questions for me, about me, no matter how random click here & ask away! I'll post the answers next week.

Very cool. I like that one bold gesture of the black ceiling, medallion, and modern light fixture.

Simply, beautiful now I never would have thought of that, but you have to have tall ceilings for this, otherwise it might seem like you're in a cave, also plenty of windows to let the light in.

I don't usually look at these kind of professionally staged rooms and swoon but this is just design at its best. Im totally with you - everything is perfection.

Between the black ceiling and the ornate medallion, I am in love! That room is like heaven.

I am thinking about painting my kitchen ceiling a dark red. This kind of pushes me on.
