If I do this on the ceiling, what style of crown to use?

threeapplesJune 1, 2012

This will be for our dining room, which will also have a cased opening similar to, but much simpler than, the image below. Any ideas?

I can't remember where you are located. Near me there is a company that makes an Adam style ceiling and I am sending you the link because it has a cornice that goes with it. If you don't use the plaster cornice you could probably do a two part in wood that was fairly linear and then had the palmettes or whatever those things are in wood or composite and then paint the whole thing out flat to look like plaster.

Your example looks a bit Frenchified to me?

Here is a link that might be useful: Felber.

Thanks, I know felber and fischer and jirouch, but their prices are way out of our budget. I'll check back in with them to see what just a cornice would cost.
Yep, it's a little French. I posted on my phone and included wrong image link, but what I want is somewhat similar.
