hot tin {ceiling}

When I first glanced at this room I thought it looked very functional but nothing spectacular and then I looked at the ceiling in the kitchen--an ornate tin (I think) panel that makes this space anything but ordinary. I adore tin tiles and think it is such an unexpected way to define the kitchen area and juxtapose the sleek lines in the space.

Love the light openess of this space grounded by the dark floor and I especially like that white bookcase with the glass shelves.

I'm thinking about doing this in my living room, which has a horribly wavy ceiling (although on the plus side, it's 10' tall). Just can't decide if it will look good or not!

The tin ceiling is divine, and I'm also struck by that red curio cabinet!

A nice punch of color in the modern space.

Love this kitchen. I have this one saved on my computer. There's something about it that's just so right. I love that it has an eclectic feel but still looks polished.

It is a great way to define an area when you have several open rooms off one another. Love tin but never thought of this idea...lovely.

I adore pressed tin - such a classic way to really lift a space. I like the way it has been mixed with the other styles in this open area.

WOW, I love this room - the pop of red from the bookshelf, the tin ceiling, the light - beautiful!

That ceiling is a work of art. The cute little pendant light went perfect with it. I also adore the stainless wall cabinet. Oozing with class :)
