Treat Your Ceiling Like a Fifth Wall

by Gillian

People often overlook the potential of their ceiling, ignoring it and leave it white and bland. Instead, think of your ceiling as your fifth wall. An easy cheap fix is to paint it a similar shade to your walls. To do this mix a 1/4 wall color with a 3/4 white paint for a beautiful seamless transition. In a bedroom try painting your ceiling a with a hint of sky blue for a peaceful and visual space while you’re lying in bed. To add even more punch wallpaper your ceiling! Pick a bold design and your room will instantly feel higher as the focal point of your space will become your ceiling.

For children’s bedrooms I love to have something visually stimulating hanging from the ceiling. Try colorful paper lanterns for girl’s room or flying airplanes for a boy. Think about how much time your little one spends lying in crib; shouldn’t they have something beautiful to look at too?
