Do we still need white ceilings?

Does the ceiling really need to be white? No, it doesn’t!

I don’t know about you but I’m seeing less white and more color on the ceilings these days. I’m not just talking about accent colors for the tray or decorative ceilings in the master bedroom or dining room either – and I love it!!!!

Virginia DeRoches of Artful Interior Finishing is currently working on a beach house makeover and she’s choosing to paint right over the ceiling. Why you ask? Do I dare say “why not?”

Well Donna, what colors do YOU like?

I get asked this question all the time at my color consultations. I try not to voice any of my personal opinions during a consult because I don’t want to influence my client on their color choices but here, let’s talk.

As a Color Expert I can honestly say that I really love all colors. Now that doesn’t mean I’ll use them in my home or in my closet but there are very, very few colors that I don’t like and I’ll talk about them later.

Here are a few colors that I would say are on my top four.

Purple. I love wearing it but wouldn’t use it in my home even in accents. Isn’t that strange how someone can really love a color but certain hues just wouldn’t use them in the home? Now that’s just me. I know people who love pink and have the color in the home. It all depends :-)

It happens every year at this time. Reminiscing of the past and looking forward to the future. The clock of Father Time has run out and Baby New Year is ready to step in.
