My last apartment in Brooklyn had wood beams on the ceiling. At first, I was bummed. I felt they crowded our already low ceilings and the color was just too dark to make the place feel…livable.
After a while, the beams grew on me. They gave our apartment a sort of character that I noticed was devoid in friend’s homes. Now, when I look at design and things that truly catch my eye about a house–wood beams are one of the first things that reel me in.
There are a few reasons why I’m certain that I’ll be installing wood beams into my living room, but instead of listing them I thought I’d share just a few images that may give you a better understanding as to why I’m so keen on the silly things.
