View of Library

Recently completed near the Piedmont Winery in The Plains, Virginia, this estate consists of a 12,000 square foot main residence, as well as out buildings such as a pool house and barn. Faced in stucco with cast stone trim and stone foundation, the main house is reminiscent of a classic Tuscan villa. The clay tile roof, mahogany windows, operable shutters, and stone floors accentuate the Italian splendor.

The map on the ceiling? Did you hire someone to paint it for you? - I am building a house now and would like to put an old world map on my library ceiling, but I'm having a hard time figuring out how to go about it. Mine is a flat double tray, so it would be pretty simple to find one and simply blow it up to size. I'm just afraid it would distort the images.
