Decorated lobby ceiling for a South Chandler home
A high-ceilinged entry lobby needed some extra character. I first applied a soft faux finish as a background, I then emphasized the quoins by adding diagonal straps which also provide a visual anchor for the chandelier. Bars around the ceiling perimeter bring out the curves at the top of the walls and complete the visual framework. Scroll decoration derived from the chandelier, front door and sconce ironwork ties the various elements together. The quoin straps and bars were tape/caulked for sharp edges while the scroll work was hand drawn, all painted with a copper undertone and English brown metallic top coat.
