Beamed ceilings

Don’t you love beamed ceilings?
Beamed ceilings are of all ages, the Romans loved to use wooden beams to decorate the ceilings of their villas.
Palladio (1508-1580) tried to recapture the splendour of antiquity in the villas he built. This is the ceiling of one of the rooms of Villa Saraceno, Vicenza – Italy, built by Palladio around 1550.

Nowadays architects and designers do love to work with wooden ceilings in their new-built or restored houses. A beamed ceiling adds an important architectural element to any room design.
