Vaulted Ceiling Chandelier

Can I put a ceiling medallion behind the chandelier on a slanted wall surface or is that just really really not done> I want to use one but I don't want to make a horrible mistake. My house is a 1920 California Beach cottage, the ceilings were removed some time back, medallion would be fairly plain.

There is nothing wrong with using a medallion. Depending on the medallion and the type of fixture, you are not committed to fastening the medallion to the ceiling. If you set up the mounting bar to compress the medallion, the canopy cover will hold the medallion in place. This way if you ever want to take it down there is no damsge to ceiling.
