`I agree with those that thought the white ceilings were odd. Putting the same color - or 50% of the wall color - on the ceilings would have added to the moodiness they were aiming for (and mostly achieved). I love color too and appreciate their risk taking since it mostly adds to the charm of the home. The living room is too dark for my taste, but I know that the CA sun can change the way color is perceived.

So much creativity in this house!! I wondered how long it took to get it to this finished level,

I appreciate the courage to use color throughout and can see their efforts to balance the white ceilings with rugs and other accents. I think that adding the same ceiling white to the inside of the alcoves to either side of the fireplace would help do that as well. And, it would help show off those Emmys!
