Copenhagen ceilings

You will have to wait for more pictures on the Brussels flat. It is now almost complete, but the finishing touches are painfully slow (I now know - builders always underestimate this). Many small jobs require many different materials and working out the sequence becomes a bit of a logistical nightmare. Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, I spent the weekend in lovely Copenhagen and stayed with friends. Beautiful ceilings. This is one big large oval shaped garland swooping around the sitting room, on an otherwise plain ceiling.
I also noticed something else, as I lay in bed: the bedroom ceiling rose faced up. The spectator looks at the bottom of the flower, with the wire of the lamp acting as stem. Unusual, but effective. 

I checked the other roses in the house: here are three different ones. First a posy of pomegranates and leaves, facing down.
A stylised corner rose, facing down.
Third, a sunflower, probably also facing down, though the centre has been stylised.
And this is the one facing up. Interesting isn't it? Note, it is also the only one with a lamp hanging from it.
And another one of the beautiful, oval shaped garland.
