A ceiling does far more than keep the rain out – it can completely transform your home! Whether your preference is for traditional tin pressed, or something a bit more modern, there’s plenty of inspiration out there – just take a look at these.
321 Marrickville Road, Marrickville, NSW 2204
Known as Montrose, this 100-year-old-home is filled with original features like cast-iron fireplaces and leadlight windows, but it’s the ceilings that shine. Walking beneath the pressed copper ceilings feels like stepping into a bygone era, accentuated by the impressive decorative walls and marble floors.
The master suite is the best example of this. The west-facing double-size room has its own fireplace, a bay window perfect for lounging, and delicately-decorated walls beneath a textured ceiling.

This four-bedroom, four-floor apartment is built into a former sandstone quarry and will be auctioned off with an $8 million price guide. Day-to-day life takes place on the top floor in the shared living, dining and kitchen space. Floor to ceiling glass lets the light flood in, with more sunshine pouring in through the pitched skylights. It’s a unique design that looks just as good inside as out.

327 Chesterfield Drive, Bonogin, Qld 4213
Sitting atop the trees in the heart of Bonogin on the Gold Coast is the perfect balance of privacy and interaction with the outside world. Everything revolves around a large, wrap-around terrace where the indoors can spill out, and you can wake up with the sun to watch the wildlife. It’s lovely and breezy inside, where the interiors still have their roots in nature. Gorgeous timber ceilings soar 4.4 metres high, grounded by the stone feature walls.
