Its common to paint the walls, haul in furniture and decorate with knickknacks, but how often do we look up? The ceiling has been referred to as the fifth wall, and it’s just screaming for attention.

Designers are encouraging their clients to expand their horizons by including the ceiling in the design plans.  Adding a coat of a solid color will draw the eye upward and provide an additional point of focus in the room.  If you are feeling courageous, pick a bold color such as magenta or yellow, but remember to let the ceiling do the talking, and keep the remainder of the room subtle.

Painting the ceiling might just create a whole new world.
