Beauty from Above

Ever get tired of staring up at the boring white ceiling? It's becoming a new trend these days to add a different dimension to your living space by painting the ceiling. Give your 5th wall some much needed attention! It's safe to either paint a contrasting hue from your existing wall color or just a lighter/darker shade. 




If you want to be even more gutsy, you'll paint or even wallpaper the ceiling with your most chic pattern.





Painting your ceiling can create a warm and relaxing atmosphere, even a feeling of seclusion since your eye moves all around each element from the floor to the ceiling in most cases. The ceiling uplifts the room visually, much like a long mirror does, creating expansion.

If you're looking to make a strong impact in a room, a painted ceiling is definitely unexpected and different, sending out the message that you're one confident decorator that's not afraid of taking color and pattern to the next level!!

Would you be gutsy enough to paint your ceiling?!
