Ceilings are the often neglected area in a room. While everyone is focusing their attention on feature walls, the ceiling is often painted the standard "ceiling white" and left alone.
Ceilings are actually an underutilised "wall" in a room. The ceiling is often the largest uninterrupted space in a room, and there is huge potential to do something different here.
Try doing a "feature wall" on your ceiling - a girls room painted in a soft white and the ceiling finished in a pretty pink like Colourplus Blush will add interest to the space and diffuse the room in a soft pink light. Add an interesting light fixture and breezy white curtains to finish the look.
In a large space, be adventurous with a patterned ceiling. A large scale chevron pattern or stripe in soft complimentary colours such as Colourplus Double Everest and Quarter Absolute will work with many wall colours.
In a room with chunky crown moulding around the ceilings, you can play with colour families - paint the walls in Colourplus Double Misty Morning, the ceiling in Quarter Misty Morning, and the crown moulding in Double Everest for a beautiful colour scheme.
Having the ceiling painted a complimentary of contrasting colour can add warmth and interest to a room. For more colour schemes, click here, or talk to your Colourplus specialist.
