When looking at beautifully designed rooms, I love to see a space that’s a bit daring and has no spot overlooked. I have heard many times on HGTV, that the ceiling is the “fifth wall.” It’s a spot in the room that can go beyond the white paint and have a pop of color! It doesn’t bring down the ceiling and make the room feel closed in, but rather draws your eye up, giving the illusion of a taller space. Most of our ceilings on the first floor are painted Horizon by Benjamin Moore. It’s a very, very light gray that almost appears white. It was my first shot at trying out the fifth wall. Then, I tried to be a bit more daring and paint our bathroom AND ceiling BM’s Sleigh Bells, which is two shades darker than Horizon and shows more like a bluish gray. I’m still ready to do more! Next time, I want to take it up a notch and try it a bit darker- and make it noticeable that the ceiling has color. This space, in my opinion, did a great job of using color on the ceiling. It definitely does not go unnoticed!
