Looking Up

Purple dining room ceiling.

Let's talk about painted ceilings, as they are absolutely my new obsession. Adding a little unexpected pop of color looks so sophisticated and daring, but is easy peasy to accomplish. A colored ceiling looks great with white walls, in a complementary color to the wall color, or even in a pattern. As I'm currently a renter, I'm going to have to wait before I achieve my painted ceiling dreams, but you better believe I'll be adding this lovely touch to my living space as soon as I can. And for those who are a little hesitant to try the trend, try painting the ceiling of your porch a bright color. It will add wonders to your curb appeal and isn't as scary as doing a full room in your house!

Designer Sarah Richardson uses wallpaper to spice up the nursery's ceiling.

The yellow ceiling (purple's complementary color) makes both colors more vibrant.

The bluish-gray adds depth to a screened porch where wall color would otherwise be absent.

High drama is added to the room with the deep-orange laquered ceiling.

Painting both the walls and the ceiling yellow, make the room appear larger than it is already.
