Oh we love space! Air above our heads! A roof that requires clearance from the FAA! Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating a bit… just a bit. But it does feel good to see those soaring heights… right up until you are decorating it. Then what on earth do you put in a room that has 15′… 17′… even 23′ high ceilings? Well, here are my design ideas and suggestions and one or two might surprise you.

The first thing I do when faced with a property that has soaring ceilings is to look for a piece of art that is large enough to take advantage of the great vertical space. If your budget doesn’t allow for a large piece of artwork, consider a fabric panel hung from a rod. Marimekko makes fabulous large scale prints that look wonderful hung as art.

Another great way to enhance a tall ceiling and add drama is to install a fabulous chandelier. It’s like a lit sculpture hanging from your ceiling! Be sure to use a chandelier that is large enough and that provides plenty of light, while reflecting the style of the rest of your furnishings. This is an opportunity to really make a style statement! Remember that you’ll need to get up there to change light bulbs. Either hang it low enough to reach with a step ladder, or consider installing it on a pulley so that it can be lowered to change bulbs and to clean it.

Use large scale accessories such as exceptionally tall plants, sculpture, or floor vases with tall branches that are large enough not to feel dwarfed by the height of the room. Don’t be timid here. Really fill the space! One of my favorite plants to use is the fiddle leaf fig. They are fairly narrow at the bottom, branching out at the top. This allows you to have height and volume up near the ceiling without sacrificing a lot of floor space.
