Ddouble volume ceilings give any room such a feeling of space. Combined with large windows (think city lofts) light will flood the room, which make for lovely bright interiors, ideal for the Northern hemisphere. But in warmer climates, the design of a house calls for protection of too much daylight entering a space. Such was the case in our former farmhouse in South Africa, where we created a double volume space as well.

I love the organic wobbly Poplar beams and the hand-woven mats of Spaans Riet covering the inner roof. In this case the interior was protected from the harsh sun by a large verandah. Here is a collection of interiors with double volume ceilings that I love:

  • s opposed to some of the ultra-chic interiors I like to post here, I am also drawn to the old-industrial vibe as seen in all those beautifully renovated old lofts.

  • igh and ornate ceilings make me think of Paris, ooh la la. I love these airy, bright and white interiors.
