Well, there’s a striking ceiling treatment
What do they do in the winter? where is the insulation?
Combining the original, the beautiful, and the practical is a whole art form in itself.
Whilst I would love to treat the second storey bedroom ceilings this way, I cannot see how we could use the rooms in winter. The internet is stacked with images of beautiful but completely impractical French ceilings like this. We are leaving the beams and ceiling joists exposed and either limewaxed or white washed to a silvery shade, but have no choice but insulate and board between.
Will be an improvement on ceilings in our rented cottage in UK with hideous textured artex and faux beams.
Aha, so that’s what the mad woman looks like with no slap on….
