Okay, I can’t get color out of my head after taking the Color With No Regrets class this week.
For one, painting ceilings other than white. Ceilings are often The Forgotten Fifth Wall. Too often, little thought is given to a ceiling’s contribution to the overall room design. I want you to look at your ceilings with a new perspective. Color and sheen can really transform the look and feel of a room.
If I’m working with a client who is Staging to Sell, I tend to keep things a little more neutral like this example here.
I would choose a color a few shades lighter than the wall. The colors are Benjamin Moore’s Tree Moss for the walls & Grecian Green for the ceiling. By going just a couple of shades lighter on the ceiling, it’s a little safer this way but still adds interest.
If you are not planning on moving in the next 2-3 years then the sky is the limit!
The pops of yellow- green everywhere really make this room come alive and the neutral sisal rug keeps everything from looking to bright.

High ceilings are great but can make a room look cold and stark. The dark gray paint color works beautiful with white crown molding and painting it in a satin finish, will give it a little reflective sheen. Don’t you just love this look?
I have a white kitchen similar to this one and I’m thinking of doing this on the ceiling.
I hope this post made you look up and maybe, consider painting your ceiling a color other than white?
