 - A design trend that lives above eye level, and we're not talking about modern lighting. The best interior design is when it spans the entire space, floor to ceiling. While most people look around at eye level and where they're walking, few see the importance of what's above. Admittedly, I'm usually promoting beautiful modern lighting when designing vertically, but today I have some awesome interior architecture to share as well. This home above immediately caught my eye with that ceiling. I have a soft spot for A-frame architecture, but they went one step further and used a beautiful material in its natural state. The kitchen lighting fixtures couldn't help but look good hanging from that wood A-frame ceiling. Dark painted ceiling with hanging light fixtures. Everything about this living room looks normal, great, but normal. Until you look up and get a bold surprise. Another interior design trend is to paint dark accent walls, but what about dark accent ceilings?! It makes the place modern, yet warm at the same time. Any hanging light fixture you install from that ceiling will surely stand out.  Modern bathroom design with cool ceiling and modern wall sconces. Don't underestimate the power of a little ceiling personality in even the smallest room of the house. Bathroom design is often forgotten, but in reality we spend so much time there preparing for our day. While the marble floors are beautiful in the bathroom design above, the interestingly rustic ceiling is where the personality is, or rather in the contrast between the two. It's like the wood beam and odd shape of the ceiling make a perfect little nook for a modern wall sconce  and mini pendant light . So next time you step into a home, don't forget to look up - you never know what kind of design surprise you may find there. Images: NY Times , The Design Chaser ,  Kvanum
