Just as ancient navigators gazed upward to find meaning, counting on the stars to guide them, modern homeowners can look up to find inspiration, allowing ceilings to serve as focal points of rooms. Consider ceilings as blank canvas, ready for personalization and transformation through the creative application of paint, architectural elements, wallpaper and or decorative lighting.
Perhaps the simplest way to transform a room is to wash ceilings in color, a technique that will seem to enlarge a space. Add a simple or ornate crown molding to really enhance it. Think of ceilings as a fifth wall and allow the color palette below to influence choices above. Apply decorative moldings, beams or paint bold geometric patterns to interject energy, select a single color to impart balance, or convey personal interests with painted murals of maps to dream of world travel or ethereal skies. A cool wallpaper is another option to draw the eye upward — an especially cozy choice for bedrooms, reading nooks or conversation areas.
Look up toward luxury with architecturally inspired elements that can transform ho-hum ceilings into high design. When applied to ceilings, luminous tile can be glamourous. Or perhaps you’re feeling nostalgic? Answer the call with ornamental ceiling medallions, metallic ceiling tiles or curvy molding that blend vintage with modern effortlessly. WE LOVE adding organic elements, such as wood beams and/or tongue & grove paneling on ceilings.
