I created custom stencils for this ceiling to fit these particular dimensions.
The crossbars are to accent the curve of the ceiling with the running bars containing it.
After stenciling and hand painting in, I put on a light layer of antique glaze to give it an old world effect. It also helps to unify all the parts together a little bit more.
The back wall is a dark velvety blue that sort of anchors the hallway to the floor.
This ceiling is painted in a custom California Mediterranean style home.
Interior Designer, Kelly Ferm of Ferm Design Concepts had the vision of this ceiling being painted, and oversaw the project.
