Cathy designed this kitchen in part to compliment the granite on the all the counter surfaces. There is a lot of the 'rust' color in the granite. As you can see from the after picture Cathy painted the walls with a rust orange color then applied a light color wash over that. She designed the scroll pattern that goes around the soffit area and then painted in the center motif over the cabinets.
In the next photo you get a real good look at the ceiling. Cathy first painted the ceiling with a copper metallic paint then applied a slightly darker wash over that.
You can see from the before picture that kitchen cabinets where also painted black and then given an aged look. I did that work.
