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!

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.
