Ceilings are often overlooked simply to be coated with a layer of flat white paint. But by adding something of visual interest to the ceiling, you can create a focal point to draw the eyes up and even make the room appear larger.
If you’re looking to do something more architectural, you can opt for a vault, beams, or coffers depending on the style of your home. When designed properly, coffers can add a high-level of detail and craftsmanship for variety of rooms in your home. Don’t have the ceiling height? An applied molding is a good way to achieve a similar look.
Wallpapering a ceiling creates a bold impression and helps to add a pattern in an otherwise plain room. For the less adventurous, a standard paint color applied to the ceiling may do the trick (and it doesn’t hurt that it can be easily changed). So next time you remodel or decorate a room, don’t forget about your fifth wall!
The most obvious and traditional place for a chandelier is the dining room. With the wide selection of styles, sizes and finishes available, chandeliers can be complimentary to almost any room in the home. But take care about how many chandeliers you feature in your home. Over-sized, miss-matched or awkwardly placed fixtures can easily overshadow the desired look and feel of your home. Above an island, a chandelier makes a good alternative to pendant lights and gives a nice bold statement. However, you’d have to have pretty high ceilings in the kitchen to accommodate this look. Private areas of the home such as a bedroom or a bathroom allow a good opportunity to introduce some glamour and sparkle by way of a chandelier. Petite chandeliers are great for areas like a powder room, kid’s room, hallway or even a closet. They add a great punch of personality to these often overlooked rooms. No matter the room or décor, there is sure to be a chandelier that will work.
The Wiese Company and staff volunteered their time and leveraged their vendor network this summer in order to help the Wellesley A Better Chance (ABC) program get a newly renovated kitchen that was in big need of an update. The mission of the ABC program is to provide academically talented and promising young women of color from underserved communities a better chance through enrollment at Wellesley High School and participation in a residential program. Wellesley ABC is committed to fostering the achievement of each student’s academic, personal and community-oriented goals through year-round support.
“Our involvement was a no brainer having the ability to pull help from our The Wiese Company Team construction company and our showroom Sherborn Kitchen and Bath vendors and partners,” said Ray Wiese. As a result, the project’s cost was about half of actual market value. “Making me even more proud was the donation of time by our own staff on a Saturday, even by my 2 youngest children,” said Wiese.
Many have the image of a bright 70’s floral pattern ingrained in their head but, oh how the styles have changed. Once thought of as old and outdated, the use of wallpaper is making a big comeback. Ranging from bold to serene, wallpaper manufacturers are sure to have an option that would suit any design style. If you like the idea of wallpaper but are hesitant to use it on large scale, quite often powder rooms provide a great arena for prints that deliver that “wow factor”. A subtle approach to dipping your foot in this resurging trend would be to try a solid color yet textured wall covering. A recent powder room project incorporated a very popular geometric pattern by Kravet. Interior Designer Debra Classen of William Conrad & Company Interiors said, “the power room was quite small with a tiny window. Adding decorative panel molding and painting it a warm white, helped to open the space and add interest. The tiny casement window would not allow for the use of enough fabric in a window treatment to add pattern, so wallpaper was the obvious choice.” Whether big and bold patterns or small and delicate, wallpaper is a great way to add depth, variety and a touch of whimsy to a room without a huge investment. Let us know how we can help you incorporate wallpaper into your next project!
