Ceilings are a fantastic surface to add a little shimmer and style and we always LOVE to run across and share gorgeous projects with you featuring our Modern Masters products. A white ceiling can sometimes be harsh against an otherwise well-designed room and adding a bit of color to the “fifth wall” can take a room from cold and sterile to warm and welcoming. We rounded up some of our favorite ceiling projects from some of our friends to inspire you!
Decorative Artist Kathy Beck of Just Faux Fun designed this incredible trompe l’oeil arched ceiling with several gold and bronze colors from our Metallic Paint Collection. It makes for an incredible entry into the home! Isn’t her dimensional effect incredible?
Ellen Moss from Miami’s Sweet Hues Studio shares that in order to create this elegant inset square ceiling, she layered several silver-toned metallic paints on top of one another to create depth and shimmer. Just lovely!
One of our fave DIY bloggers, Pamela from PB&J Stories wanted a fun yet elegant patterned ceiling for the nursery she was designing for her new little girl. Using a chic chevron pattern, she colored the ceiling using our Warm Silver Metallic Paint. We think the baby will love looking at it! Be sure to see the full reveal of the metallic painted ceiling of her baby girl’s nursery!
The decorative painting firm, Garay Artisans, was faced with a white ceiling for a bachelor’s home. Their client wanted a masculine feel with polish. They started with a Tequila Gold Metallic Paint base on the entire surface and proceeded to age the insets and woodgrain the beams with a marquetry pattern on the intersections. Quite the dramatic change and the client was extremely happy with the results!
Talented decorative painter Tom Henman created a striking and uniquely beautiful coffered ceiling for a client’s kitchen. Using our Metal Effects products, he patinated the Bronze Reactive Metal Paint with the Blue Patina Aging Solution. Stunning!
Nena Sexton from the NCF Studio of Decorative Arts created a gorgeous dome ceiling by using a stria effect with several Metallic Paint Collection colors. The metallic finish is both striking and subtle and gives a beautiful shimmery effect when the light casts on it — perfect ambience!
Too often, little thought is given to a ceiling’s contribution to the overall design of a room. Ceilings are a blank canvas that can be painted and finished to become a focal point or simply add a finishing touch to a room’s look. Even if it has a wide expanse, it’s one of the most budget-friendly way to add a fresh, new feel to your home or office. We’ll soon share other inspiring projects with our plasters and textures — be sure to see the many projects we share regularly on our Pinterest and Facebook fan pages!
