Dress up your ceilings!

     Here's a couple of paint ideas to dress up your ceilings. The ceiling is sometimes called the forgotten wall due to all the attention usually goes to the walls.
    If you would like to wake up your ceiling add moldings, color or faux and get instant WOW factor in your interior.
     Keep it simple, choose a color scheme using a few shades of the same color. You can't go wrong!
     The faux rag technique on the wall to the right  is used again on the ceiling surrounded by a beautiful bright white frame. This once timid ceiling is now proud to be dressed up. This is a very simple project that ties in the surrounding area.                                                                                                                 
     On the left this tone on tone faux ceiling has a framed in boarder that adds just the right touch to this kitchen dining area. It's a nice compliment to the crown molding and adds more interest to the room.

     This ceiling has a texture which adds more depth to the rag technique. The total width of the framed boarder is 12 inches and was applied 8 inches from the crown molding. An eggshell finish was used to break up the larger area of the flat white ceiling.
     Just by adding some color can change your ceilings from subtle to dramatic with or without moldings.

      Looking up has never been better, use your imagination, plan out your ideas and go for it! Remember it's paint and it can always go back to white. So, Dress up your ceilings!
