Painted Ceilings

As many of you know, our house is on the market. Moving is can be overwhelming and stressful, but when you're all unpacked and ready to decorate... Well... That's when the real fun begins!
I have been avidly collecting ideas on Pinterest to try out in our new house when we eventually move. One idea that I've seen done fabulously well time and time again is painted ceilings. How many of us are guilty of slapping a clean white coat of paint above our heads and considering ourselves "done" ? 
Hopefully some of these pictures will convince you otherwise. Start small--with a bathroom, office, guest bedroom, or porch.

I love a white kitchen but sometimes they can look TOO white and a bit sterile. This blue/grey ceiling sets it off the white cabinets and adds so much to a colorless room. Seeing the individual planks of wood also add great depth and texture.

Same on this porch--the rest of the room is neutral so the ceiling really adds an unexpected punch of color.

Pattern can also look amazing on a ceiling. Time consuming, yes but worth it!

How fun is this? It gives the illusion of a circus tent even though the ceiling is flat.

An understated nursery gets the wow factor with this yellow and white striped ceiling.

Not only is this blue and white striped ceiling terrific but so are the narrow floor to ceiling ledges to hold books.

I'm hoping to stencil at least one room and this photo inspires me to do the ceiling while I'm at it.

Did I inspire you to paint a ceiling? Make sure to get the rollers with the super long handles. Your back will thank you. Happy painting!
