Upstairs, a very low and uneven board ceiling in the room that the owners use as a den/office made what is actually a very large room feel quite compressed. Dark, stained, board walls contributed a somewhat oppressive vibe. Replacing the board ceiling with a raised, plaster, tray ceiling that springs from above the original board walls -- painted a light color (Grout) from C2 Paint -- created a much more inviting, bright, and expansive space. New trim color (Sheer), also from C2 Paint, and a new floor color (C2's Magnet) tie the color palette in this room to the new palette in the rest of the house.
Look for more photos of this completed project on the KHS website portfolio soon.
