Beautiful Ceiling, Ugly Fan

I’m always looking up here in Jeddah because I’ve seen some of the most beautiful ceilings imaginable in homes. Many homes’ ceilings have fancy designs, tray ceilings, medallions, and gorgeous chandeliers. Our new apartment has these gorgeous concave medallions in the ceilings.

    • So funny – my hubby doesn’t usually pay much attention to my blogs, but he happened to be sitting right next to me when he saw the title of this post, “Beautiful Ceiling, Ugly Fan,” and wanted me to show him this post. He was slightly embarrassed but said he loves the fans anyway! BTW – I wasn’t here when he selected the home furnishings for the new apartment.
