This ceiling is a WOW!
Inspiration, Paint, Wall Treatments, Color
Last fall I had the pleasure of visiting the Ruthmere House in Elkhart, IN. I couldn’t get past the gorgeous ceiling in the foyer. I snapped the photo you see with my cell phone, but in person the ceiling is absolutely stunning. The colors and design are historically accurate to 1910.

I would love to paint something like this on our dining room ceiling.

We were recently at a restaurant and I fell in love with this wall! I love the color, texture and large faded text.
The vintage industrial lights are perfect with the wall.
I can’t quite see this look in my bungalow…but the wall color and industrial lights are amazing.

The above Sherwin Williams advertisement was accompanied by the following text:
“This dining-room illustration demonstrates that very dignified and attractive effects can be obtained without over-decoration. Even with its attractive wall effects, beamed ceiling and fine furniture, the general effect is simple.”
