Explanation:
Hi, me again, another thought - plafon in some cases can also mean ceiling.
You can get alot of info from www.eurodic.ip.lu or look for on line dictionaries that are very useful.

ceiling rose


Explanation:
The context is obviously not confined to doors and parts of doors

matching colour(for)doors, ceiling roses and (trims) (reliefs), etc in accordance with the model (?), when these (?) are different from the basic colour scheme

(?) indicates words I can't be sure of, for lack of context.
