So I recently decided to leave Hawaii and come back home. I need to completely redo the apartment I am moving into. The paint is decent in one of the rooms but the rest needs massive amounts of help.
1. I have the most beautiful ceiling "rosaces" and "moulures"
that's what a rosace looks like...sorry I am just too lazy to check how they say that in English, so I'll just put a picture of it.
My problem is that the ceiling was painted with really thick paint and now they look heavy and nasty. Anything I can do to make somehow get the paint off or make it look better?
2. Since this used to be an old concierge lodge...there are no closets. Actually one of the rooms still has a weird little thing in the ceiling where a vent was installed for the old heating system (i.e. let's burn wood to make fire). I was thinking of putting a mezzanine bed (being an old French building the ceilings are rather high) and having my closet underneath it, but that may not work out. Any recommendations?
3. I jut bought the carpet today. I was going for fire red but it ended up being just a shade darker. I was wondering what colors would go well with the carpet.
