A couple of weeks ago Zane and I were talking about our plans for the house. When he said he'd like to have exposed beams in our great room ceiling I just about died. Good Lord, how'd I get blessed with such a man?!? I love me some contemporary design, but there's just something fascinating about raw, roughed-up touches! Feast your eyes:

Those are just a few of my favorites, but I'm sure you'll be seeing more exposed beams over the next year while we're finalizing our house design plans. What about you guys? Anyone as in love with the look as I am? Maybe you have a great inspiration photo you'd like to share?

Oh how exciting. I love exposed beams. It's so not happening in my home (a small cape cod), but happy it's in your future!

We have exposed beams in our living room now and in the living room of the house we are closing on in a couple weeks. They are nothing like these photos though! Exposed beams need majestic ceilings! I love the ones in the kitchen photos you posted too. How exciting to design your own home! It will be ups and downs but in the end you will have just what you wanted!

Oh, what a great experience to build a home and with beams?! Even all the examples you show. Glad I found your blog! Janell
