The table accessories are from a wholesale company called Roost. If you go to their website, you can find a distributor near you.

Wallpaper on ceiling - Absolutely love the idea of doing this! However my ceiling has 2 ac vents. Would it look strange to wallpaper around the vents?

The wallpaper was a custom design that I had made for the client. But there are a lot of other chinoiserie papers that are similar in style.

We are loving the current wallpaper trend. There are some simply beautiful designs out there, and are being used in such creative ways. Loving the ceiling and how the ceiling light adds that extra touch of glamour, bringing everything together.

Hi Ms. Gordon, I'm one of the regular featured Ideabook writers for Houzz and a fellow designer in Portland, Oregon. I will soon be publishing an Ideabook on Houzz on the use of crown moldings and this photo will be included. I wanted to know if the ceiling is 8'? This is a great example of using molding actually on the ceiling -- not where it meets the vertical wall -- thereby adding to the feeling of height in a room when you don't have really high ceilings to begin with. Lovely!

The center ceiling panel is finished with a custom wallpaper- not a paint color I'm afraid. And Dunn Edwards is a paint company. You can find them through Dunn Edwards stores or through other paint suppliers. You can go to their website online to find a source near you.

The wallpaper is not availble on the market I'm afraid- it was custom designed for the project. The paint color you use will depend on your design and preferences, but it would be a great alternative to wallpaper.

I don't know what other colors you are working with in your den, but I'd probably put the lighter color on the wall above your chair rail.

her paintings are way overpriced for a nobody artist. OMG I took some oil paint with black white and turquoise from Michaels and put it on ready made canvas. I did 3 20 by 20 and put in my black and white basement living room and I swear people said where did you buy the art. I showed them all the art I have seen for 500$ and over they still dont believe I painted it. It was easy to do if it was abstract where you just make the paint go in different directions..

I don't think it does. It's a tale of two cities. The accent pieces and chairs are the same drawing attention to the differences in the couches and lamps. The chairs should be different with a similar color or pattern showcasing the different details in furniture design.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to 10 Great Ways to Use Room Screens
Use a pair to add symmetry. These ornate room screens add glitz and Hollywood Regency style to this formal living room. Flanking the fireplace with them also adds balance and symmetry.
Lily Gahagan added this to A Little Sparkle, a Little Shine
So many lovely gold tones! From the sunburst mirror (an ingenious way to cover an old light fixture?) and metallic patterned wallpaper on the ceiling to the luxe screens and gilded vase on the mantle, this room is pure 24-karat pleasure. And yet it's nothing garish, just a subtle glow.
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to Crown Molding: Is It Right for Your Home?
This room's ceiling is just a shade over 8 feet tall, and then lower than standard height as it slopes down at the sides. Technically, crown molding is used at the junction of the wall and ceiling, but in this room that would have been very low and at an odd angle. By continuing the wall color up the walls onto the ceiling and placing the molding in from the edge of the ceiling, it gives the illusion of taller walls, thereby making the room appear taller. The molding is also not very wide — my guess is 3 to 4 inches — so it isn't too heavy for the scale of the room.
Vanessa Brunner added this to Readers' Choice: Best Living Rooms of 2011
16. While this living room is definitely high end, it's chock full of great design ideas for any home and any budget. Users bookmarked this photo for the soothing color scheme, mix of prints, the mirror on the ceiling and the fantastic screens that shoulder the fireplace.
Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Hollywood Haven for a Celeb and Family
Sarah's background in graphic design encouraged Gordon to experiment with colors and patterns. "She does not believe in white rooms, so it made it fun to pull the spaces together," Gordon says. Ceiling: custom chinoiserie wallpaper; starburst mirror: Global Views
Samantha Schoech added this to Color Guide: How to Work With Lavender
A lighter, and maybe even grayer, version. It's the perfect neutral for this eclectic but formal living room.
Becky Harris added this to New 'Anna Karenina' Sets Inspire Aristocratic Design Twists
Trend twist: Mirrored screens. One way the stage sets were transformed was with ornate screens covered in mirror and upholstery.
Samantha Schoech added this to 15 Rooms Bursting With Bravely Layered Patterns
Look at this traditional, subdued and elegant room just chockablock with pattern. It's on the rug, the ceiling, the screen and the pillows. It remains subtle because the colors are soft or neutral and everything about the room is utterly symmetrical.
Charmean Neithart Interiors added this to 11 Ways to Roll With Wallpaper All Over the Home
Wallpaper the ceiling! If you have a recessed ceiling detail from a cove or another architectural detail, consider wallpaper with a coordinating wall color. Note the placement of the ceiling fixture here; it creates a great focal point against the pattern.Browse wallpapers in the Products section
Shane D. Inman added this to 8 Qualities of Great Interior Design
Symmetry. This living space’s symmetrical design draws the eye immediately up to the wallpapered ceiling and ceiling fixture. The screens in the back of the room anchor the space, focusing attention on the unexpectedly tall piece of art over the fireplace.
Mary Jo Bowling added this to Top It Off: Wallpapered Ceilings Take the Eye High
The living separately concept works beautifully in this room, by designer Elizabeth Gordon. If they had been placed together, the pattern of the screens and the pattern of the wallpaper might have looked as uncomfortable as Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin did when attending events together just before their conscious uncoupling. The conscious decision to have the decorative elements split by pale blue walls allows each element to shine.
Orlov Design Co. added this to Things Are Looking Up: 10 Ideas for Decorating Your Ceiling
5. Ravishing wallpaper. The stunning gold starburst ceiling fixture in this elegant Los Angeles living room is a showstopper in its own right, but the custom silk wallpaper behind it makes it nearly impossible to keep your eyes from drifting up.
