Before & After: This Bedroom Is the Perfect Argument for Painting Your Ceiling Pink
With its soft accents and minimalist furniture, Cara’s home in Asbury Park, NJ, exudes a soft, airy style. But the sun-drenched bedroom she shares with her husband Mike needed a special touch to make it stand out.
Never one to shy away from experimenting with style, Cara was game when we found inspiration in an unlikely place: the ceiling. They say that ceilings must be white—but we don’t know who “they” are anyway, and we say white is just the beginning!
For Cara, the opportunity to paint this oft-overlooked surface meant flirting with one of her favorite colors: pink. With the ColorSnap® Visualizer App by Sherwin-Williams®, Cara found the exact hue she wanted. With the app’s “Match a Photo” feature, you can snap a photo of your color inspiration, whether it be a vase, memento, or in this case, a pillow, and find the exact Sherwin-Williams color to match. Just tap different spots on the image to get the closest shade, for a whole palette of personalized recommendations.
The color that captured Cara’s heart was Blushing SW 6617, and using it to paint her ceiling transformed her nice bedroom into a knockout. She loves how calm and relaxing it makes her space—”like a soft cloud over the room,” she called it. We love how painting has the capacity to tie a room’s accents together; here, Blushing adds warmth without sacrificing airiness. And yes, Mike loved it, too. That’s the power of color.
What inspiration is hiding in your space? Follow your creativity—not the “rules”—to find it. The experts at Sherwin-Williams can help, with color selection tools like the ColorSnap® Visualizer App and premium paints that unlock every room’s possibilities.
