Color and texture on the ceiling adds an element of surprise in any décor. Tin ceilings originated in the 1880s as an affordable way to dress up a “fifth wall.” Today, affordable faux tin ceilings come in a wide array of textures, patterns, and colors. This contemporary kitchen has a warmer, vintage feel as a result.
Cork—it’s not just for wine bottles and bulletin boards. This family room ceiling covered in cork and wood strips for added texture, gives the room a warm, eclectic vibe. The colorful furniture is a cool balance. Note: cork on the ceiling makes it super easy to hang temporary ornaments or lights for a party.
Oh, baby! Who says lush folds of fabric are just for drapery? Create an ethereal, bohemian space by hanging fabric from the ceiling all the way down the wall to soften any décor. Who wouldn’t want to nap in this serene space?
Tin roof, rusted. Usually found on the outside of a home, corrugated tin on the inside of your house is a bold move. Reclaimed tin panels come pre-rusted and well-aged, and are the perfect complement to a classic, bucolic country house. They also function to make a high ceiling feel cozier.
The perfect balance of light and dark comes to this elegant sitting room with a show-stopping ceiling. White overhead is traditional, but the custom plaster relief design is totally unexpected. Dark wood floors along with a dark grey wall color provide warmth and sophistication while the ceiling makes it feel bright and open.
