Spotlight: Colorful Ceiling Inspiration from Arcadia

LAST DAY TO ENTER THANKSGIVEAWAY #2!!!!

Hello! I'm Joanna, a writer for Arcadian Lighting, a terrific online source for light fixtures for every decorating style. Some color-timid decorators shy away from using bright hues on the walls. Can you imagine being brave enough to paint your ceiling vivid orange or using bright floral wallpaper? Some decorators are doing just that with great success. We're loving the innovative way some of these rooms turn out!
Colorful Ceiling
A whimsical cherub amongst lilies and lily pads top off a vintage kitchen. A lack of upper cabinets keeps the kitchen from becoming crowded or feeling smaller.
Colorful Ceilings
A geometric pattern on this low ceiling gives an optical illusion. White on the bed and ceiling make the color on the walls pop.
Colorful Ceilings
A floral wallpaper adorns the ceiling of this small bedroom. The layering of so many textures could have been too busy, but it works well here!
Colorful Ceilings
A silver flocked ceiling makes a dramatic statement in this bright orange room. Modern furnishings, textiles and art blend well with the ornate traditional feel to the room.
Colorful Ceilings
A dramatic ceiling gives this traditional setting a sophisticated contemporary feel. The unusual lighting fixture might have looked odd but it marries the formal feel of the room with modern furnishings.
Colorful Ceilings
An outdoor room is finished with a Moroccan tile ceiling in shades of blue and yellow. A large light fixture goes with the opulent feel of this room beautifully.

So...what do you think about vibrant, boldly colored ceilings after these little pieces of inspiration?

  3. I love the idea of an "accent ceiling." When I moved into my sister's old room at my parents house after college, my parents gave me free reign of how to decorate it. So I went with magenta walls and a black ceiling. It looked so sharp and edgy, I loved it. I'll never choose to have a white ceiling again. :)

  4. Ceilings are like giant blank canvases, offering so much room for color and pattern.

    I love the elegant black ceiling in the ivory dining room, above, as well as the vibrant Moroccan tile ceiling in the outdoor room. One, restrained, the other over-the-top--and both gorgeous!

  8. I love a ceiling "fresco", but the use of wallpapers and tiles are also a clever way to brighten a ceiling. The Moroccan tile in hte last picture is fabulous!

  9. I have always wanted to do this in my laundry room. A bright paisley or floral pattern with white walls... everyone thinks I am crazy, but after seeing this I have to do it. I love how much this adds to a room.

  11. That’s a beautiful kitchen painting in the first photo. Somehow, it reminds me of Michelangelo’s work in the Sistine chapel. I seldom encounter figure paintings on walls and ceilings. I hope I could see one before I grow old!
