Sorry, but I don't know where else to ask this question - we have exposed beams in the living/dining room, painted, you guessed it, Mission Brown. Am seriously thinking of painting them white (walls are white, lamps white, furniture dk brown, accents black and increasingly blue) What do you think? BTW - marvellous blog.
This is the best BEFORE shot of the first pic. It was not good!
I think the white beams lend a feeling of spaciousness to the area.
Looking back into the current Kitchen.
BEFORE - as we saw it at the first Open Inspection.
