The ceiling is such an forgotten space in a room.   But giving it a little love can really transform your space.  Here are some ideas to get you going!

Think about starting off with just adding a simple coat of paint in a beautiful color. I love this blue!

Fun post! The most exciting thing I've done is a colored ceiling (turquoise once and apple green once) in neutral rooms. I would like to do a painted lattice ceiling but can't get the husband on board!

Even painting the ceiling in a colour that is not white can add some magic! Wonderful photos! Best regards from Barcelona,

I love all of these ideas! Thanks for finding the pics. We were joking this weekend, because for about the 4th time (ugh!!) our tub drain leaked, and ruined the ceiling below. So, while I trust that it is REALLY fixed this time... I am tired of repairing the ceiling. My solution? An approximate 12x14 frame on which to rest a piece of sheet rock. Just like access to the attic, but a lot smaller. Our joke? Well because a flat wood/mitered corners frame holds the access "door" we joked about adding a picture. :) It will actually blend in well, painting it the same colors and all. Made me think about adding pics to the ceiling if you run out of wall space. Would never do it of course, but it is a silly idea. :)
