In last week's post about adding color in your kitchen, I suggested adding color to a part of the kitchen that usually doesn't get too much attention — the ceiling. Love the idea? Here are some examples of other rooms with painted ceilings, to get your creative juices flowing.
If you abide by the maxim 'more is more,' this pink-ceilinged room will thrill your soul. Because a room this interesting couldn't possibly have a white ceiling, right? Home of musician Shawn Colvin, photographd by Ryann Ford for Austin Monthly Home, via Helen Thompson.
What about in a more traditional space? That can work too. I love the sweetly muted pastels in this living room from Veranda.
The above is an example of a great trick for cozifying a space that feels a bit too grand. Painting the ceiling, and the portion of the adjoining walls just below the ceiling, visually lowers the height of a space. This is especially true if you choose to paint the ceiling a darker color. The room pictured above, from Chris & Roger's DIY + Modern Farmhouse, isn't particularly tall, but since it's a bedroom the more intimate feeling is a perfect fit.
