High-Ceiling Concept Space

Open up views to two-storey spaces.

This 2008 Interior Design Show concept space, designed by Brian Gluckstein, puts the two-storey living room on display with extra-high windows. "I love the volume of space and height in two-storey libraries. It's a real luxury," Gluckstein says. "But people can get the same illusion of height by painting their baseboards, walls and crown moulding all the same colour. Likewise, very high doorways, windows or arches make a space seem taller."
