Transitional Dining Room With Hanging Light Fixture & Recessed Lighting
A sense of intimacy is captured in this dining room by the addition of a hanging fixture that brings the light low from the high ceiling. The modern lines of the table and chairs are complemented by the more traditional ceiling medallion and fireplace surround. For a touch of fun, the designer added a painted, faux deer mount above the fireplace.
A whimsical blend of styles characterizes the small kitchen in this Brooklyn, N.Y., townhouse. Traditional architecture is emphasized with Corinthian columns, appliques and an ornate ceiling medallion, while a contemporay pendant lamp and sleek finishes add a contemporary touch.
Traditional Master Bedroom with Ornate Finishes, Furnishings
Shimmery fabrics and rich finishes throughout turn this master bedroom into a luxurious retreat fit for the king and queen of this literal castle in Colleyville, Texas. The 7,200-square foot luxury home features Gothic-inspired architectural detail. In this space, ornate crown moldings are repeated in the recessed ceiling medallion.
Traditional Living Space with Paneled Walls, Marble Fireplace
Richly paneled walls continue onto a dark-stained, coffered wood ceiling. An elaborate ceiling medallion surrounds the antique brass chandelier. A formed marble fireplace surround creates a focal point in the space.
Trendy Gray Living Area With Navy Sofa & Contemporary Art
A modern space with traditional touches: This living space is marked by the juxtaposition of styles. While the ceiling medallion, crown moulding and fireplace feel traditional, the funky ceiling fixture and furniture are anything but. A dark navy sofa and area rug bring calm color to the otherwise neutral space -- the dog invites you to join and sit for a spell!
Pale Blue Master Bedroom with Ornate Architectural Details
This luxuriously appointed master bedroom features an elaborate faux-finished ceiling with a recessed center medallion and ornate crown moldings. Traditional furniture blends with a hanging tapestry and intricate light fixtures. The interior design corresponds with the home's Gothic-inspired architecture and castle-like detailing.
The homeowners of this traditional townhouse hoped to give the space an entirely modern look, but some things were just too beautiful to change. For instance, the decorative plaster ceiling medallions may not fit into a classically modern aesthetic, but with the right pendant light, they blend seamlessly and contribute a lot of character to the space.
