Now that may, of course, be too much for some people to tackle. Let’s look at a simpler variety of ceiling paint.
My friend Carol has a deeper version of this sky in her kitchen and no one walks into that room without gasping in appreciation at the gorgeous and fun ceiling. Yet still some may still want an even simpler approach- say a solid color.

Above is actually a picture of the family room in my last house. Let me tell you, the ceiling made the room so warm and fun - it changed the feeling of the room entirely.

The above all white rooms get a huge boost of character with the red and orange ceilings.
Dining spaces, like the two pictures above, are a great place to play with color on the ceiling. People are so absorbed in what’s happening at eye level while eating, that this can provide just a pop of the unexpected. It pulls the eye up so one can appreciate the entire space.

We have all seen the aqua painted ceilings in porches - well, Mrs. Nesbit took it up a notch with this fabulous purple. Do you know why porch ceilings were painted blue like the sky? I didn't either, until my contractor and old house buff told me. It was to fool the spiders into thinking it was the sky so they wouldn't settle there. Hmmmmm, not sure spiders can even see color?
