Add age with ceilings

Panelled ceilings make a room feel as if it's been there for years. It's a beautiful way to add character and a sense of timelessness to a new home.

In the cooler months, beams on the ceiling helps make rooms feel warmer & cozier.

Even when painted white, beadboard ceilings add texture & warmth to a room. I love the aged, driftwood feel of this ceiling:

It's the look I'm going for in a bedroom at my dad's house. I'll post pictures assoon as I get some at Thanksgiving.

So, if you're considering adding woodwork to your home, look past your walls & consider your ceilings.
