So I thought I’d post up a few of our snappies from last weekend in DC. It was more of a touristy weekend whizzing around seeing the sights, than a design-inspiration-hunting weekend, but there were a couple of design gems that caught my eye.
So we naturally sprinted around The Mall. trying to see as much as we physically could, after a very sobering trip to Arlington Cemetery:
May I present to you the lovely younger MacD, say hi Karen!
And totally fell head over heels for the architecture (ahem, and the shopping) in Georgetown:
But the real star of the show for me, were the i.n.s.a.n.e interiors of the Library of Congress. I was staring skywards slack-jawed for approximately 2 hours:
Crazy, no?! It’s a vibrant fun energetic city, I’d highly recommend it!
So anyway, the crazy ceilings made me remember an article featured in Elle Decor from a while ago about using wall/ceiling murals in interior design, and I thought I’d post up a few for your viewing pleasure this morning.

I have to say I’m not a massive fan of these in a residential setting (although that fuchsia one up top did make my heart skip a beat), but click here and here for a few other ideas for jazzing up le ceiling. What do you think – fan or foe?!
