Wacky Woods

There was a time when a wood floor meant oak strips, and a wood wall meant planking headboard.  Now we are finding all species of woods in all different places.  Installation can be as easy as peel and stick!  Veneers come in every species imaginable.  Here are some creative uses of wood to get your imagination flowing!

Ceilings Are Your 5th Wall

If you’re a follower of our blog, you know that both my children are getting married soon.  My daughter, Jillian wants a beautiful vintage affair.  In our search for a venue we found a location with an enchanting ballroom.  The room is unique, in part, because of its amazing fifth wall: the ceiling.

So often, when I work with a client and suggest a different ceiling treatment, they look surprised.  Shouldn’t ceilings be white??  Here’s proof that ceilings can be dark, light, tin, beamed, coffered, glazed, and treated with as much variation as your imagination allows!

Get some inspiration; Take a walk around your house, and see how you can transform your fifth wall!!  Then, show us what you did!!!
