Lovin' Coffered Ceilings ~

Here are a few lovely images of coffered ceilings - putting these in my dream house file as well!

To start off this lovely collection of photos, here is a photo of the wonderful ceiling at the Pantheon in Rome, Italy. I love this building!

I love the flickr one near the end, with all the lights! Beautiful.

I'd live to do something similar, but with dark wood beams.

I alway love that look in a kitchen - done know why but in a kitchen it makes it more homeyish- is that a word?
