Black Painted Ceiling - Total Impact

My friend painted her wood beam ceiling in high gloss black and it was one of the chicest most impactful design move.

  1. They look great, and I especially love the first photo. I guess it helps if you have super super high ceilings. I can't imagine pulling this off in my own house with not-so-high ceilings.

  2. You know, people are so afraid to add black to a space. I forever push people to add at least a little to every room. Black has the ability to define a space, and ground it a bit. When a room is full of neutrals or brights, black is like the eyeliner....one shouldn't leave home without it! If painting walls feels too risky, I recommend adding black through the use of pillows, throws, furniture, or chic lamps and accessories. I love your pictures, and the ceiling looks amazing! Your friend has guts :)

  5. Loves fabulous! I wish that I could do something like that in my home, but I have standard height ceilings which might make the room look smaller.

  6. We painted our family room and stairwell ceilings a dark chocolate brown. Turned out fantastic. I definitely recommend a dark ceiling.
