painted or papered stripes:
a soothing hue of paint:
Melanie Turner's amazing striped bedroom ceiling:
or this metallic gold or silver leaf.
Whether matte or glossy, it can be most affective in solidifying the color scheme
or adding an element of surprise in a room. It's that "je ne sais quoi" ('I don't know what'), the designer's touch, a visual statement of bringing the ceiling down, making it heighten, or making it cozy. Bethany's master bedroom was a fun treatment and added depth and dimension to the space.
I always say rugs are 'pictures for floors' so ceiling treatments must be like jewelry ('room candy') or a beautiful hat or beautifully coiffed hair. What do you think? Have you painted your ceiling lately? I say let's do it!
