This is a trend I’ve only subtly delved into – my loft bedroom doesn’t really have a clearly defined ceiling, so I painted it the same colour as the walls and I love it. All the other rooms in my house have white ceilings, and I’m not sure if I’m brave enough to change that just yet. That doesn’t mean I’m not totally inspired by the talented risk takers of the interiors community – and if you’re one of those people, this post might help to inspire you to be a bit more daring when it comes to ceiling colours and textures.
Whether you decide to go along the tonal route, or go all out and create a striking contrast, a painted ceiling is a really effective way to add a designer edge to your home.
The coving and cladding combination in this image is stunning and it makes such a huge statement having the ceiling in such a bright and contrasting colour. It doesn’t make the room feel oppressive, as most people would think with a darker colour above.
This entire image is so perfectly styled. The rust colour with matching lighting details along with the cooler tones towards the lower end of the room makes such a statement. It would be perfect if you had high ceilings and wanted to create a real wow factor.
This would be ideal for a child’s bedroom or playroom, or just any room in colour lovers home. The pastel colours work so well with the colours used throughout the rest of the room.
The panelled ceiling in this image is stunning and striking. It would make a statement in any colour, but with it being this dark, earthy green – it looks so cosy and homely – I wish I had a home like this to experiment to this level!

Kate has a stunning home, so it’s no surprise that her office makeover with it’s gold ceiling would be any different. It’s really warm and the tones she brings in through the rest of the room bring it all together perfectly.
