On Trend: Bold Statement Ceilings

Taking Designs to New Heights

The ceiling is usually the most neglected space when it comes to designing a room. We would argue that this is a major missed opportunity! Adding wallpaper, a pop of color or a stencil design to a ceiling can completely transform the space from drab to fab. The oft-forgotten space, if done correctly, will form a dimension that you didn’t even know you needed and impress your guests. Love the idea but still unsure? Choose a room you don’t spend a lot of time in to test the waters!

Contrasting dark painted beams with a lighter ceiling color delivers a lot of dimension and emphasizes the height of the ceiling. The hand painted floor palette also matches perfectly and seamlessly ties the room together.

The entry hall greets your guests and offers the first impression of your home. This space is important; make it pop!

If you are looking to add coziness to a room try installing wallpaper on the ceiling. The living area or keeping room are both a great place to experiment with patterns.

An additional advantage of wallpaper is that it visually connects a small space and generates a more curated feel. This small office space has been magically transformed by black and white patterned wallpaper.
