ceiling medallions

domino magazine has a super helpful guide to hanging a ceiling medallion on their site right now. i’m trying to install one in our dining room and this made a huge difference. click here for the full guide and here for a great selection of ceiling medallions (we have this one).


One thing to watch for when you’re adding a medallion is that the adhesive you’re supposed to use can actually pull off the first few layers of paint. My contractor simply affixed it to the ceiling when he installed my domed deco chandelier, which held it in place. Only one tiny part wasn’t flush with the ceiling, so we added silicon there in a small dab.
