Space and Inspiration | Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer

I am so honored I have been featured with my article Space and Inspiration on the site of Author James J. Cudney IV,  in the Tips and Advice section, where authors can share their tips on any subject they love. My topics always gravitate around design, style, and colors, that’s what I do the best since I have conducted my design business for three decades and not showing signs of wanting to quit.

In this article, the ceiling is the protagonist. I talk about how the ceilings might play a good role in inspiring writers. Some of my pictures show extravagant ceilings of places I have visited in Europe. I am not saying that to have an inspiration, a writer must have one of those highly decorated and historical ceilings to be able to write.

Inspiration can come from anything, even from a stone, or from a dollop of butter curled in an unusual way. It happened to me a long time ago, when looking at that dollop of butter on my plate, I ended up designing the exterior part of a home in Italy.

It’s easier for me to look up above if I am waiting for something to come to me, a spiritual, artistic, or a fantasy inspiration. That phrase my father pronounced “You are not going to find it on the floor” stuck with me ever since.

Did You Forget The Ceiling? | Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer

History brought us beautiful examples of decorated ceilings of grand homes with high volts, tall windows, large interior doors, intricate floor design and expensive décor. With so much opulence in home design, ceilings could have not been left undecorated, as they would have looked disconnected from the four vertical walls.

Builders today conceive homes very boxy and design them mostly to turn a quick profit, living out ingenuity and skillful conception of design. Ceiling is the one area I always complain about. Often they are painted white for convenience and left alone.

I see a home as the nest, which first gives me comfort with functional spaces, attractive features and needed amenities, then caresses my soul with colors suiting my personality and objects that bring humor or whimsy. I have been lucky to find a cute home with mansard ceiling lines and I have had fun turning my ceilings into whimsical canvases. This Montgolfier in my photograph is on the ceiling of my studio for my enjoyment and inspiration.

Montgolfier

Curious of how it could look in the night sky, I photographed it and used Photoshop to manipulate the image into a Montgolfier flying in a night sky. Once I finished manipulating, I imagined painting a night sky view in someone’s room with fiber optic lights emulating the stars. The image in my mind was real neat. Not everyone is up to design the Sistine Chapel on the ceiling, but something more suitable to the person’s activities and modern life style is very possible. Playful rooms are not for kids only. Being a designer, playful rooms for me are a necessity.

Night ceilings we call skies are magic. Skies with stars and moonlight kiss us. at night. If we look up in the sky, in the daytime, we see the foliage of trees framing the sky picture beautifully while clouds encourage us to imagine any design our mind can sees. Fiber optics light produces the same warm, suiting and dreamy effect on the ceiling of our homes and they are energy-saving too. Let’s bring the beauty of a night sky inside and redirect our focus above.

The objective of my designing profession is to bring you the unusual for your unique personality. Let me help you with your ceiling design. Ciao,
Valentina
