Most people associate paint schemes with walls, but a way to set you apart from a standard room would be to decorate your ceiling with paint.  Use colors that are vibrant and bold, patterns and wild themes, or go classic and simple.

Giving your ceiling life through paint with color, patterns, or an original design is a great way to keep your room unique, bold, and your own.

When you first view this ceiling one wouldn’t necessarily expect it to be in a laundry room of all places.  It’s bright, exciting, and fun, but you really could put it anywhere.  This is a great example of the versatility of design.

This green and white gingham pattern truly gives the feeling of a classic room, the white walls compliment it nicely and let the modern styled kitchen shine.   The few green plate accents really bring the colors out.

You look and see stripes and might immediately develop a connotation with something young, silly, or a circus themed room, but instead we have a classy chandelier and a very delicate girls bedroom.  Stripes aren’t limited to one theme, you can do anything with it.

Elegance In Simplicity

Patterns or eccentricity in design can be appreciated or even revered, but there is something to be said for the elegance of simplicity.  One color scheme, that is bold enough on it’s own can capture an entire mood of a room a make a strong statement.

The contrast of colors from ceiling to floor and the simple elegance in design in the room gives this a real minimalist approach.  The molding gives it an extra glam of taste and class, and the plain color makes the room feel open.

This mustard yellow ceiling is all one color with white walls contrasting it, but the just the accent of the shrug on the bed is enough to make the color pop,  but not overwhelm the room.  It feels bright and open with a solid color that might otherwise feel heavy.   A great design inspiration.

  1. I love the Nebula idea for a kid’s bedroom and the pops of colour with patterns on small out of the way rooms and elegant/classy shades for a more regal effect. Will definitely try this out in my home! Thanks for sharing.
