The Look: Stunning Ceiling

Though there’s a 360-degree view in this Vancouver penthouse, look up and you might catch a glimpse of the sky, too. In the kitchen, a swirling, mural-like Cole and Son wallpaper on the ceiling proves to be one of the most striking features of the home: above the white lacquered and grey oak cabinets floats a moody pattern of grey clouds, a reference to the homeowner’s nostalgic memories of time spent looking up at the skies and daydreaming.
