When it comes to interiors I've always had a flair and preference for the dramatic and the bold. I like rooms that have a commanding presence, that surprise you with detail, that entertain and delight.  Not every room in a home need make a statement - that could easily overwhelm - but it's always fun to discover a space that is completely unexpected, that surprises and delights. I've also always been drawn to ceilings that haven't been ignored. In other words, those that haven't been left behind under a coat of white paint only to be forgotten. I love those that are painted, papered and I especially adore tented ceilings. Whether in a garden room, playroom, child's bedroom, pool house, bathroom or study, these fun and whimsical tops are sure to delight. Because it's nice to walk into a room that brings a smile to your face.
