Take charge of the room, don’t let the room take charge of you. See all those angles? Don’t let that intimidate you. I have many clients that have rooms such as this one and to keep it easy, I say paint the entire room one color. I’m not a huge fan of white ceilings to begin with so let’s keep it simple.
Like this graphic? You may be seeing more of these! This is how I do my virtual color consultation. You ask for color, I send you easy to understand graphics such as this one.
Anyway, can you imagine trying to figure out where the ceiling color starts and where it stops? Can you imagine trying to tape off this room to paint?
DON’T DO IT!!!!
Really guys, just paint the entire room one color.
Easy, simple, smart.
I’m not understanding this post. Are you suggesting painting the whole room blue like the swatch, including the ceiling?? I have to tell you I did that to my house back in the Tuscan era. The decorator talked me into adding Venetian plaster to the ceilings throughout the house, to match the tan plaster on my walls. My ceilings were only 9 feet high, and I honestly felt like I lived in a cave!!! I had to keep the lights on all day long, and felt so depressed in it. I can see doing it with a light color, like the original photo, but I’m not sure on a bold color like blue!
Yes, as long as your paint color is not too dark, paint the entire room. Yes it will feel like the ceiling is a bit lower but 9′ is good.
I would not recommend putting texture on the wall because yes, it would feel very cave-like. Like popcorn on the ceiling, plaster would also be a poor choice and very 70’s – a dated looked.
I’ve had many rooms like this where I suggested painting the entire room one color for my clients and it came out beautiful, very comforting. When you break it up with ceiling white, it feels confusing and looks like some kind of landing strip in the room. Keep the color light and I PROMISE you’ll love it! If not you can come back and yell at me 🙂
