Dramatic Painted Ceilings

I love the look of wallpapered ceilings — aren’t these stars delightful? But no matter how many gorgeous ones I see, I can only imagine the patience required to apply it. However, painted ceilings can create an equally appealing effect.

A high-gloss finish is daring — even more so in Benjamin Moore’s Jupiter Glow.

Wood beams and ceilings always look fresh when painted white, but green or another colour would look great in a cottage.

This dorm-style bedroom is simple and chic, and that fire engine red is incredible!

Neutral walls with punchy ceilings definitely draw eyes up. Now, to get rid of those popcorn ceilings! For tips on choosing a ceiling colour, read this article.
