I'm going to replace the ceiling in my florida room and am looking for something different. So far the considerations have been; beadboard & crown, T&G, knockdown (yuck!) or going back to stomp (also yuck).
I'm looking for something really different like gluing shells to the ceiling (which I just thought of ).

What about a sort of bamboo "weave" like gets done on a lot of exotic tropical homes, like those in the Phillipines and that area? This book has tons of photos of some absolutely stunning places.

BigE, we have thought about bamboo in many sizes, they also roll out the big stuff into a mat. Haven't seen anything really great though.
Rich, we both got away from drugs long ago. Might have been a cool idea in the 60's with some black lights while watching a TV channel with no signal but not cutting it today. If you happen to have some blotter, we could discuss it. LOL

Sorry Pro, I'm looking for original ideas, not 19th century revisited. All of that has been considered.
I had an idea for a ceiling of nothing but rifles, Ol#2 shot it down. LOL She's a Yankee and from the wrong side of the tracks, too civilised.
I suggested gluing seashells to the ceiling with a clearcoat to bring out the colors. Voted down again.
She's from Rhode Island. Do small states breed small minds?

I'd ask you the same things I would ask a customer-

Have you established a budget? Are you thinking of spending $1000 or $10,000.

What do you not like about your ceiling now?

What ceilings have you liked that you have seen?

What ceilings have you definitly eliminated at this point?

and most importantly - where is Mrs. Teetorbilt? Is she available to discuss the ceiling? I really need to speak with both of you at the same time.
