DREAM BEAM CEILINGS

White kitchen with high ceilings and exposed beams

I am obsessed with high ceilings and pretty intrigued with the idea of high beams.  My little cottage in the Hollywood Hills, as small as it is, has high ceilings and exposed beams in the main living area...makes the oh so tiny space feel airy.    If I were shopping for a new home...which hopefully one day I will, I would love to find a place with high high ceilings and exposed beams.

Exposed beams definitely create a specific look.  The ones at my house are painted white...below all of the beams are exposed wood...some finished, others unfinished.  Gives the homes a rustic or vintage look when they are unpainted I think.

So the interior design question of the day is...do you like being exposed...?  Does this look suit you?

What do you think of exposed beams?  Like or dislike?

Happy Wednesday!

  4. Love the exposed beams but I personally prefer them to be in a raw wood finish!

  5. High ceiling keeps a room temperature low, and exposed beams give a character to room decor. I personally like painted beams as in pics 1,4 and 6 .
