Photo Diary of a San Diego Designer in Europe: Vaulted Ceilings

by rebecca elisabeth design
Ceiling treatments are plentiful in Europe but America tends to overlook ceilings as a design element in a room.  Whether ornate or simple, ceilings should be used to create drama in a room. Cove lighting for contemporary design or applied molding for traditional settings are just two examples of what you can do to your ceilings to make an interior more interesting.  In my trip to Europe I couldn’t get enough of the gorgeous ceiling treatments, below are some examples of vaulted ceilings in Rome.
Main Entry: vault
Pronunciation: \ˈvȯlt\
Function: noun
Definition: An arched structure of masonry usually forming a ceiling or roof. Common vault shapes are: dome, barrel vault, groin vaults, rib vault, and fan vault.
