Ice-Cream Ceiling No_8872

Look at this amazing ceiling – it reminds me of sculpted ice-cream.

I took this photo inside the 18th century mansion at Castle Ward in N. Ireland.

This house was a place that fascinated me as a child. The inhabitants – Bernard, 1st Viscount Bangor and his wife Lady Ann – did not get on, neither did they agree on style, and so they split the house down the middle where one half of the house is built in the Classical style and one in the Gothic style. Its also got secret passages!

This image is part of the ceiling from one of Lady Ann’s rooms – I think it was called the Powder Room – but isn’t it fabulous?

Sculpted, vaulted, curved, patterned, organic yet geometric and highly decorative – creamy white with a touch of gold!
