It's easy for me, because, well....it's just paint!
But last week I had the discussion twice with different clients questioning my advise to paint their ceilings. It's interesting to me that there is so much angst about color on a ceiling.
When did the rule book come out that says that ceilings must be white? And who wrote it? I really want to know, because historically, ceilings in Europe were decorated more than any other wall in the house.

Now, mind you, I wasn't interesting in being this dramatic.
I wasn't even trying to get them to do simple clouds on the ceiling.

or French style moldings....
or crazy stripes....

I wasn't even suggesting a contrasting color....
(although, I'd do this for me in a heartbeat!)
I just wanted to take the neutral wall color on to the ceiling to minimize all the angles.
or even this....
I love a painted ceiling. What do you think?
Am I in a parallel universe or something?
Help me here!
What's your take on painted ceilings?
