Inspired by: Painted Ceilings.

I love the look of a painted ceiling.

Such drama!

Such impact!

I was reminded of them recently when I went through some old notes I found while clearing out the basement files. I'd written:

  • Ceiling Height: perception of height can be manipulated with colour. "Paint the entryway ceiling a deep neutral and the white ceilings in nearby rooms automatically rise." from Small House, Big Style, BH&G, 2000


Using colour to change one's perception of the volume of space. What's not to love?

Ceilings seem to come in two versions.


and liquid.


As much as I love a lacquered ceiling, the surface beneath the paint has to be perfectly perfect. And mine is most definitely not. In fact, I am kind of hoping a dark ceiling will help hide the gouges and cracks.

So guess what's my next project?

so, I painted my daughter's ceiling hot pink in our last house. While I enjoyed the look for a while, be aware that it will make the ceiling look lower, and give a glow of whatever color you pick (so if you pick hot pink, the whole room will have a pink glow).

Good to know, Lisa. It is a bit of an experiment.
