Friday Favs: Statement Ceilings

Were you inspired by our faux tin ceiling?  I hope you were!  Ceilings are an all too often neglected part of the room.  People spend their time picking out paint and wall coverings, choosing the perfect flooring and furniture…. and paint their ceilings the off-white color of the ceiling paint right out of the can…. why?  You should think of your ceilings as a 5th wall, just as deserving of attention as all your other walls.

If you’re feeling like showing your ceilings a little love, here’s a roundup of inspiration.

The easiest option is to just consider the color of the ceiling. If your walls are more neutral a pop of color can be a fun accent.

You can also bring the ceiling color down into the room bit.

Maybe you’re not feeling the paint, but wallpaper doesn’t have to be be just for the vertical walls.  Julia Rothman’s Daydream is a pretty perfect pattern for a ceiling.

If you’re not up for covering the entire ceiling you always just add a focal point.  This one has the added bonus of being an amazingly dramatic headboard too.

Not my normal aesthetic, but ceiling was too spectacular not to share!
