Ceiling design ideas have been forgotten in many new homes.

Years ago people use to decorate  their ceilings to add interest to their homes. It is one of my favorite areas to work on.  Well designed ceilings can add so much beauty and interest to your home.

Below are some of  the ceilings I have worked on for my clients and what we did to fulfill their dreams.

The kitchen ceiling below was designed to emulate the shape of the island counter top.

Moldings and ceiling drops were used and a talented muralist Greg Bugala was brought in to paint this ceiling.
