When we think of the interior of a room, we often think of furniture, windows, doors and color schemes, yet we tend to overlook the potential of ceiling decoration. Ceilings offer many possibilities to enhance your living space, enhancing a room greatly, or simply providing that much needed finishing touch.
Ceiling medallions are decorated with relief work, and this can range from simple moulding rings to elaborate leaf, filigree, and geometric designs. The traditional shape of the medallion is round, though definitely no limited to this. Oval, square and even cross shaped medallions can give your ceilings character and a unique appearance.
Ceiling medallions have come to represent elegance and attention paid to detail. The ceilings of old Europe were among the most ornamented in the world. Elaborately designed ceiling medallions often accented ballrooms and dining halls. During the Italian Renaissance, medallions were often gilded, and in Victorian England, medallions were often white and combined with extensive moulding to create a grand effect.
