Faux finishes add to the drama of this magnificent ceiling. Visible from 3 levels in this sophisticated home, this grand dome is a constant center of attention. The beams were faux finished in a wood grain technique (faux bois) to match the cabinetry below. Withing the dome, the faux finish appears as pounded metal and reflects dramatically with the changing light throughout the day. Challenging as this was to accomplish, it is always manages to be a topic of conversation.
