Decorative Ceilings


Decorative ceilings hail back from Roman times, seems as if a masterpiece was always being commissioned! We spend so much time analyzing the floors and walls (what wood finish, what stone to select, what area rug, what paint color) and yet neglect the ceilings. Here are a few ideas:

Love the cherry blossom pattern applied to the ceiling!

Wallpapering the ceiling is amazing - many different prints and texture to choose from. Really creates an atmosphere for a room based on the wallpaper selection.

I won't leave out simply painting the ceiling, because decorative elements such as borders, stenciling, or faux finish can be added. An alternative paint color from the trim or walls with a different finish adds an element.

And of course, mirrors on the ceiling (Kelly Wearstler).
