One of the trends that are being anticipated for 2018 in these first weeks of the new year are decorated ceilings…and I’m totally with it!
Decorating a ceiling comes as a completely new feature with respect to what is common in todays’ interiors and is certainly going to bring a strong feeling of new! Plus, I think there’s something special in the very fact of looking up to admire something; it’s like the magic of staring at the stars at night...
So let’s start our journey with the nose in the sky! Here are 6 different strategies to make a ceiling special…
Colour comes in helpful in many design situations, and this makes no exception. You can add colour to a ceiling with paint or – why not – wallpaper. There are a million and one colours and patterns to choose from to achieve either a subdued or a more striking effect.
The idea of this blue on the ceiling wrapping on the door wall is so clever!
Look at the apparently inaccurate border of the ceiling paint. I think it makes a beautiful contrast with the grandness of the chandelier and the bed.
I love the office on the right! That optical pattern on the ceiling goes perfectly with the gold pendant light!
The two below are really bold ones! Do you like them?
Trims & Co.
Probably now you’re thinking at those classic coffered ceilings and their majestic presence. Well, yes this is one option, but beams, trims and even coffered ceilings can match many different styles, even rustic, like the ones below.
Or they can go with a more modern style...
What I like here is that the coffered part is recessed and limited to an area in the middle of the room; the white around it makes it really stand out!
And obviously a coffered ceiling doesn't necessarily have to be a rectangular grid!
Are you ready for some out of the box examples? Sit tight, they’re stunning!
This is what I like to call "the magic of wood"...is it not amazing what you can do with wood?
And adding mirrors the effect gets really dazzling!
What about the underwater-cave effect in this restaurant? I find it so calming!
This effect would be so easy to implement with sticky tiles (IKEA has some of this kind)…I’m tempted!
I left a surprise for the end…if you go to Barcelona (Spain) you have to visit the Jardin del Norte restaurant. You'll be welcomed by this refreshing shower of flowers...I love it!
All these stunning inspirations are making me more and more tempted to decorate my own ceiling! I’m thinking to try with my bedroom. It may be a way to boost my mood in the morning when I would only want to stay in bed…even though it would also be a great excuse to actually stay in bed admiring it!
