Hello, non-white ceilings!

Or should I say ‘good bye, white ceilings’? Hm, not sure if white painted ceilings will make their disappearance any time soon, but one thing I do know: welcome a new design trend – ceilings painted in blue/purple/red (to name a few) colors! And I like the look of a room which has white walls against a bold colored ceiling, though it’s quite daring to do this, don’t you think so? However, I’m not planning to paint my ceiling, so for now here’s some inspiration for you, in case you might consider this idea for your own home:


how chic is the tomato red lamp in a  blue & white room?


glossy black ceiling? yes, please!


Country Living


this purple is stunning


red? now this is totally daring!



Now the big question: would you paint a ceiling in your home with red or blue or green? I’m confused if I’d do it or not, but probably not :)

    Wow, great post! I must admit I only like a coloured
    ceiling when walls AND floor are white, and I would
    prefer the blue colour (first photo), or a soft green
    would also be perfect for a bedroom…

    Thank you for sharing!

    Love from Amsterdam,

    Rosa, I agree about painting the ceiling in a blue color only if the walls are white. Otherwise it seems too overwhelming. Thank you for visiting! xoxo

    DO it do it do it!! It totally depends on the rest of the room, but I’ve seen some totally successful gold ceilings. My bedroom ceiling is wallpapered in a golden beige geometric pattern. I think it looks stunning when it matches the color of the walls too (except for when you have white walls, ugh)

    Dagny, I think your bedroom looks stunning too, even more when I remember that chandelier :)

    Nastya, would go for a green ceiling in your home?

    I just found your blog and really like it. This is a fun post. I would be way too nervous to actually try most of them, but I really like the look of painted ceilings. Maybe I will ease into it with a soft blue or green…
