This type of painted ceiling is not practical for the average home or office, but that doesn't mean you have to stick with a plain white ceiling.
Here are some other possibilities:
- A blue ceiling makes you think of the sky. Even the palest blue will bring a breath of fresh air to a room.
- A ceiling a bit lighter than the walls will make your room look more open, as though it has higher ceilings. Think about the palest grey Peplum in the palette below on the ceiling, with walls in Musing and trim of Wild Dove.
- A ceiling a bit darker than the walls will make your room look cozy.Think of Soft Suede walls and a Pumpkin ceiling, with Oriental Spice for moldings and trim.
- Neutral walls and ceilings painted in biscuit shades like Fair Bianca or Sarah's Place, make a good backdrop for wallpaper borders right at ceiling height.
