Lighter color restful. They mention Sherman Williams "Upward" (SW 6239) to make it feel like the sky is above you.
To further dramatize your tray, install cove lighting (indirect lighting built into ledges, recesses, and ceilings). Lighting professionals recommend installing cove lighting at least 18 inches from the ceiling and 6 feet 8 inches from the floor.
for a lighter cottage approach, install paneling and paint it white or off white.
Lighting does give a very modern look, perhaps too modern. Unless the light is turned way, way down.
Cans are ugly but subtle lighting of molding is nice.
Plain is restful. No cans or fixtures.
We are making the right decision to omit cans in the bedroom soffits and ceiling. Too harsh.
Plain and simple
Fan is hideous.
This light, perhaps b/c of the color, brings the ceiling down and makes low ceiling appear even lower.
This one is restful and serene. Except for the cans.
Dark fan is overpowering.
Fan is too small.
Another plain and simple.
The statement here is putting hyper modern with classic. "Post-modern" I guess, but too attention getting and show-offy.
Lighting is nice here but it is a very tall ceiling. Bead board is nice but maybe it should not be everywhere.
Is this too "plantation"?
Amazing, although nothing to do with us.
Nice above a tub.
Restful except for the lights.
