How did you achieve the ceiling finish? - I have a natural cedar ceiling and would love to soften it. I really like what you have done here.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lee-Hawk's challenge with this house was figuring out how to keep the beach vibe and warmth that came with the bones of the house and still satisfy her need for a modern, clean esthetic that was also sand, dog and child friendly. In the family room she uses a mix of styles, like the streamlined low credenza and the darker rustic cabinet. Both sit behind the sofas, provide storage and visually work well together. The subtle shimmer in the fireplace tile is reminiscent of seashells and brings in a natural beach feel.
Along with rosette blocks, bull's-eye plinth blocks are used at the edge where the baseboard joins the casing of the doorways in this Encinitas, California, waterfront home.

This is a limed ceiling treatment. We can achieve similar with paint, another softer look than white.
