When Chris decided to paint the living room ceiling in her colorful Gothic family house in North London, she just grabbed a tin of Colman's Mustard and took it down to the paint store.
This would be a bold move for most of us, but it works like a charm in this free-spirited, colorful, happy house. It's a nice reminder not be afraid of putting bright color on the ceiling. For the full tour (including the master bedroom that Chris decided to paint goldfish orange after spotting a brightly hued fish in a pond outside the window on a gray day) go here.
