My walls will be SW Whole Wheat, creamy white trim/doors, soft brownish/green carpet. Like to keep the ceiling as is. Wrapping ceiling beams and large beam running the length of the room where there are also 4 posts. What color suggestions for ceiling beams, large beam, and posts?

I love the dark beams! Could you match the colour to your other beams and posts? Then your entire structure will be dark and dramatic, a beautiful contrast to the paler elements in the room.

I agree with Cynthia here, I love the look of the dark beams. Try to match them if you're able to. The current look that you have in this space is beautiful, I'd change very little!

I also like the dark beams. I searched for ceiling beams that were painted (or lighter) that the natural wood ceiling on Houzz and fould none. Any beams that were painted, the ceiling was painted as well. I think with the color of the walls and the white trim, the dark beams will be a good contrast.

Thank you for your advice. I was a bit worried about the large beam (dark) would weigh the room down. the outside is being sided grey with white trim Cape Cod look. Thought I needed to carry that look inside..but hated to paint out the ceiling. Saw afew painted looks for large beam and posts, while keeping the ceiling untouched.
