Here is a paint job I did in my home town of Old Bridge . It's a tall foyer with approx 20ft ceilings and some very intricate trim and box work . The colors are mid tone bases St Martin sand & Serengeti sand by Benjamin Moore . Regal flat for the walls , Super Spec flat for the ceiling and of course Regal semigloss for the trims :)

That look great! Such warm colors' combination. What is your feedback about Benjamin Moore?
I was pleased with the coverage and coating of the Ben Moore but I have always liked Pittsburgh paints better , Unfortunately the biggest distributor of Pitt in New Jersey decided to change over to Pratt & Lambert which I think is garbage ! So Benny Moore it is ......

I've done a few large entryways like that, nothing like that with the wood trim detail...that is alot of work at tough angles. Nicely done sir! Looks great!

Nice work.

The window is not in the center, so is the chandelier..:) Which perhaps makes the cut-in/-around the chandelier easier --no scaffold, or extension poled brush is needed.

The boxes on main walls look nice. They'd look more interesting & busier if a smaller box of same shape is added inside of each large box. (Inside of the smaller is the lighter wall color).

I use a 12ft extention pole with a brush holder on it to cut around the chandelier , It takes patience and a steady hand ! But I'm not putting scaffolding up to reach that :yes:

Some jobs I could reach the base of chandelier by hand and unfasten the base cover, from top of extension ladder / side wall. If not, yes, a 6' step ladder, extension pole, brush holder, steady hand, wide-open eyes, and a lot of repeating in the mind "do not make a mistake, do not make a mistake..."

Me likes your sharp and straight cut lines on the trim/woodwork. Nicely done.
