Guest Room Update – Painted Ceiling

Last weekend I shared before-and-after of a client’s grandchildren’s room.  I also shared that I was encouraging her to paint the ceiling in this room a lighter shade of the bedspread and the beds themselves a granny smith apple.



I went back to her home earlier this week to help her tweak some things before her daughter’s wedding (the wedding is in her front yard this afternoon!).  I was happy to see that she painted her ceiling like I suggested.  It looks so good and she loves it!   It feels like the ceiling is actually taller than before.  Oh, only one of the beds was made, but I had to take a picture anyway.  She hopes to get around to painting those beds soon – I’ll keep you informed!

What color do you think she will paint the beds? I love the look of the painted ceiling. A friend of mine painted her kitchen ceiling a beautiful light robins egg blue. I wish we had flat ceiling. We have popcorn throughout and I hate it.

I really like this. I had been hesitant to consider ceiling colors thinking that it would only work in a room with crown molding, so I was glad to see an example in a room without.

alicia – yes, you can do it without crown moulding. but when there is no moulding, i usually just wrap the ceiling in the same color as the rest of the walls. it makes it feel kind of boundariless, if you know what i mean. in this case, the client wanted to keep the walls neutral so we just did the ceiling.
