When we moved into our apt we had the entire place skimcoated...in case you don't know what that means, it basically involves millions of dollars (ok, mebbe not millions, but shit was still HELLA expensive) which you spend in order to get some "expert" to add an extra 1/8 of an inch to the plaster of our walls by smoothing it all out. Why did we need to do this? Cause our apartment building was constructed in 1918 and so for the past 92 years, people have been glopping coat after coat of paint onto our walls and it looked like a big fat shit sandwich.
Alllllsooo, there was a fan in our living room. And duh, I hate the living shit out of fans. Yes I know they serve a purpose and yes I know that they make some fairly decent ones these days, but whatevs: I have a no fan policy in our home. However, our new lighting fixture had not arrived by the time they were done skimcoating. So even though they removed the fan, there is a hole there that is now too big and our lighting fixture doesn't *quite* cover it. SOOOO, in an effort to avoid replastering that shit, I've decided we need a ceiling medallion.
Only hitch is: ALL CEILING MEDALLIONS EVERYWHERE ARE UGLIER THAN this dude:
I don't want a plain white plaster one, cause then I have to paint it and also they are all too ornate and Italian rococo-y looking. We have a Jonathan Adler lighting fixture:
We have white walls/floors and our color scheme is kind of muted (browns, with some yellow and pops of color). I sort of feel like maybe a wood, art-deco-y something might look good, but srsly ppl: I can't find anything.
Do I need to make this shit myself? Is this a gigantic biz opp for someone?? Where are the modern-y, chic, non-disgusting ceiling medallions at???
