Ceiling design is one of my favorite parts of a room design. Wood ceilings always reign supreme in a rooms impact and delight the occupants in a timeless way. Every ceiling is unique and always an inspiration of the Architect and the clients collection of art and antiquities. This Sarasota ceiling was complicated and richly details for a very sophisticated eye for historical details inspired by the famed Ringling house in the same city.

Palm Beach John Volk dining room ceiling restoration

Restoring this dining room from a 1926 John Volk home in Palm Beach required attention to detail. Removing the years of over painting and trying to identify the original paint. there was another attempt at the art work in the eighties that was removed. When the traces of the original art was identified, I recreated the images in the design I could identify and the rest I referenced the only Black and white image of the original artwork. Ot was a labor of love and I was very proud of the outcome for a very deserving and dedicated to preservation client. #preservation #jognvolk #holtonarts #interiors #design # style

this is the only image I had to work with in recreating the ceiling. The client provided this amazing monument provided by the Architect's daughter. The art design was something I was committed to preserving and bringing back. I relied more on this photo than on the ceiling remnants we uncovered, much of witch was destroyed stripping off the years of over painting. I was able to get clues to the colors used and used this in producing my samples. You can see more under the project section. #palmbeach #preservation #jognvolk #holtonarts #interiors #design # style

I hope John Volk would be proud to see this ceiling in its most recent recreation. The colors I keep soft and faded, I wanted some hints of time passing. The antiquing was light and the blue background was made to be translucent echoing the wall plaster venetian inspired green.
