Wallpaper Your Ceiling?

Pin it button big

This wallpaper-on-the-ceiling trend strongly reminds me of when I pasted up my ceiling with those glow-in-the-dark stars when I was a tweeny-bopper. (Are they still popular now? Or have kids progressed to something way more sophisticated?) And after I saw this trend in Elle Decor, it also popped up in O at Home.

I'm liking the idea of using wallpaper sparingly; like under stairwells and slanted ceilings, but I'm not quite sold on papering up an entire room yet--will it make the room appear smaller, the ceilings lower? Maybe that just depends on the main color of the paper. And for those of us who have gone through the ordeal of scraping 70's era popcorn from our ceilings, could this be an offshoot of that?
