I have not worked with many trey ceilings in the past until recently. This week alone I had two colors consultations with trey ceilinged rooms. One was in a new contemporary home:

And just today I started working on this dining room trey ceiling below:

I have never had a trey ceiling,  but I really love the drama of the architecture:

Depending on your preference, there are so many different ways to paint this area:

Some homeowners like a lighter trey ceiling:

Which are beautiful, but the trend now seems to be a darker ceiling at the top:

Love, love, love this room:

Another option is to paint the trey ceiling the same color as the walls:

Which is your favorite way to paint the trey? I have to say that I really like the darker color. Look at this beauty:

I have been working with a sweet homeowner that is loving all of the decorating ideas that I have been giving her while we are working on redesigning her dining room.

Her dining furniture is dark and beautiful. She has an older buffet table that we decided to paint  in Ben Moore Hale Navy HC-154 as a statement piece.

The wall color she decided on after testing with large painted boards is Benjamin Moore Smoke Embers AC-28:

It is a beautiful soft gray with a hint of blue. It will look gorgeous with the Hale Navy buffet!

She was looking for help in choosing a paint color, rug, window treatments and accessories:
