Today’s post is a continuation of the series on mouldings. I have so many beautiful images, that I realized that I needed to break it up. Since I started with plaster ceiling design, this is what I’m going to focus on for today. Some of you may recall that I’ve already done a post entitled You’re Gonna Hit the Ceiling… which focused on paint and wallpaper finishes for the oft-forgotten ceiling.
These are types of rooms that one really hates to put anything in them. And quite frankly, I love more contemporary furnishings in homes like this.
I’m going to start with old plaster because quite frankly, like a lot of things, they simply cannot do what they used to do.
Not even close
Decorative plaster ornamentation is commonly found in homes built in the 19th century in large cities like Paris and New York. The rooms always have very high ceilings– at least 10 feet and large gorgeous windows.
So, let’s start with those. Of course, along with the ceilings, we’ll also get a lot of the wall and floor, but today’s focus is upward. I could not find the original source for some of these images, so if they are uncredited, that is why.
Absolutely love this image and even though I never do paint this glossy, I really think it works so well here.
A Swedish interior. Very interesting detailing on the ceiling
Love the mid-century modern mix in this apartment
Beautiful website with lots of gorgeous plaster mouldings. These tracery type mouldings on the ceiling are becoming quite the trend and I think in most cases, it’s a good one.
Love that some of the ornamentation was left in an otherwise modern room.
My jaw kinda hit the floor when I saw this unique design
This adds another dimension to this otherwise contemporary kitchen

Gorgeous ceiling! Absolutely heavenly!
