Color Love

What an amazing way to bring drama and character to a room! Leave the walls white and paint those dang ceilings!! Oh how I love, love this look. What color would you use? The vibrant red? A bright yellow? A pale gray? Home Depot, here I come!!

An accent ceiling is so much better than an accent wall.

I love the idea of robin's egg blue. My parents painted the ceiling of our wrap around porch that color (and so have lots of other East Coasters with porches) and it's just so lovely!

Megan said...

awesome idea!
I like the plum colored ceiling.

i love this too. i'm considering doing this to one of our extra bedrooms. i figure then i can get away with a purple hue without the husband vetoing a purple room!

Pretty ceilings! Many porches here in the South are painted sky blue, as they should be ;P

wow! i love this! i remember reading an interview with a british interior designer who said she painted the ceiling above her bath pink so that she could see the ripples of the water in the ceiling, i thought it was a lovely idea.

Definitely a great idea to bring a room to life. It is something we do not usually consider when decorating.
have a great weekend!

Ooooh la la!! I LOVE the muted turquoise ceiling! It looks like the ocean in all the right ways! I can't wait to paint when we move. I'm tired of being a renter unable to paint!

Natalia Lynn said...

Honestly, love the purple. With the gray highlights throughout the room. Beautiful. Great inspiration!

katie said...

Hazel said...

what a great idea.. I'd have to go for a sunny yellow or candyfloss pink!

Lorena said...

I saw a ceiliing painted in turquoise last year and fell in love with it.
Because all of my main spaces: kitchen, living room, dinning room, bar and balcony are all connected I tried it in my bathroom.
I did it in green and added a few accents in the same tone. i love it/

Brittany H. said...

I'm all about those colored ceilings. These are all done well.

Mmm, this is inspiring me to do something creative to my house.

Happy Sunday!

A Casa da Vá said...

Now that is genius... it is almost like a surprise element, you may not see right away - I like that!

Our entire home is done with the ceilings different colors and the walls the same cream.

Here is a link to show you a couple of our rooms in a "regular" house.

We have 17 different colors and since they all have the same warm base, I think they look great together.

I have the same orchid color on my dinning room walls, although I have used flat matte not the satin that is shown on the ceiling in photo #3.
It has been up for about 12 years.

I think I would paint the ceiling coral and then use coral colored wall hangings against white wall.
