This is extraordinary! I love the ceiling! Pairing the black metallic with the other black elements of the room, and choosing a wall color that you don't see elsewhere in the room was pulled off perfectly.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Use patterns to emphasize scale: The luxury of large rooms is their ability to absorb pattern and color. Here, Gambrel mixes just the right amount of patterned and solid pieces to create a harmonious yet interesting composition. The black and white patterned drapes draw the eye upward to the dramatic vaulted ceiling.Tip: The vaulted ceiling was not an original feature of this room. To get the effect he wanted, he opened up the lowered ceiling, painted it with semi-reflective paint and installed the softly luminous mother-of-pearl lanterns.
Nothing fills space like a grand piano! In addition to being long and narrow, this living room also has a high ceiling. The hanging lights do a nice job of lowering the ceiling's perceived height, so the space doesn't feel so daunting.
The positive: They add a sense of grandeur.Few things say grand like a vaulted ceiling, as this living room so admirably demonstrates. Such a ceiling is an invitation to go all-out when it comes to furnishings and accessories. A grand piano sits effortlessly in this magnificent space; whereas in others it might well dominate.On the flip side: Less grand designs can be just as appealing as those on a larger scale, especially if they’re a better fit for your lifestyle and personality.
