Ceiling height - Can you tell me the height of the ceiling and the drop distance to the beams? Love this look, but I'm worried our original ceiling height isn't enough to keep this from feeling too tight. Beautiful room...Thanks!

What sheen is the ceiling and the beams?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: New Style with Old-World Warmth
The dining room ceiling was designed to center around the table. Silver leaf was hand applied and lacquered for shine in the coffered space. The French doors open up to a balcony space, which allows for indoor/outdoor dining when the weather permits. Chandelier: Circa lightingWall color: Paris Rain by Benjamin Moore
