It’s All in the Details

November 5, 2016

Many homeowners often spend time and money creating an overall functional space in their homes. We design inviting spaces that are comfortable and approachable.The room can function perfectly well if it is laid out with the proper furniture. It can even look good if the furniture pieces are coordinated to each other and to the color of the room.

So how can we go beyond that to create a beautiful room?:

Quick Crown Molding Paint Question

July 16, 2014

I recently received a letter from a reader questioning if she should paint her crown molding the same color as the ceiling paint color, the trim color or the wall color to make the ceiling look taller and NOT look lower.

I did not have a picture of her room to base my advice on but gave her an answer that is the general rule for most circumstances:

A crown molding that is painted a different color than the walls may make the ceiling seem even lower because the highlighted molding draws the eyes to it. Also, if the molding is painted a different color than the walls, especially if the molding is painted the same as the ceiling color, it will make the ceiling look lower.

My advice to her was in this case, you might want to paint the crown molding and walls to match so the molding will be a continuation of the wall and the ceilings will not look shorter.

See how the room looks taller in the above photo with the crown molding painted the same color as the wall?

I hope this helps. I love crown molding and believe the extra detail in a room looks stunning!
