The ceiling of the music room at Lichfield House is comparable to the boudoir ceiling at Holdernesse House in its basic pattern: a deep cove surrounding a flat area framed by a beamlike rib. Unlike at Holdernesse House, however, there is no coffering, and the residual spaces are filled by shallow arabesques.
