I am in the middle of painting and rental-style-renovating an old Craftsman home. It came complete with a unique paint job - most of which has been safely covered by now.

But here's one bit we're debating over. The ceiling was painted with a brown-grey paint in this pattern that echoes the window frames. We repainted the walls with a lighter shade (Abalone from Benjamin Moore) but coincidentally it's complementary to the original color of the room. What do you think - should we keep the painted ceiling, or paint the whole thing the same color as the walls? Take a look at more photos after the jump, then come and vote!

Oh, and just for the record, it is not an option to repaint the pattern in our new color!
