I’ve said it before: ceilings are the most neglected surfaces in any room and in the realm of Interior Design and Decorating. Think about it – have you ever painted a ceiling? If so, did you paint it anything other than white? Hove you ever even thought about your ceilings from a decorative aspect? You should – and I’m going to help you! There are several benefits to treating your ceiling in part of your interior design plan. If you’ve got a shorter room or low ceilings, adding ceiling interest can draw the eye up and make the room feel taller. (Find an example in this post: Designer Tips: Using Bold Wall Color). Conversely, if you’ve got a very high ceiling, a darker paint or more dramatic treatment can help to bring the ceiling down and add a cozier feeling to the space. And simply by adding interest to your ceilings,  you just add something special and unique to your rooms and your home.

Painted ceilings

I’ve blogged before about the most simple ceiling treatment: a coat of paint that is anything but white: Painted Ceilings

Here are some additional inspiring paint options.
