Color and texture on the ceiling adds an element of surprise in any décor. Tin ceilings originated in the 1880s as an affordable way to dress up a “fifth wall.” Today, affordable faux tin ceilings come in a wide array of textures, patterns, and colors. This contemporary kitchen has a warmer, vintage feel as a result.
Cork—it’s not just for wine bottles and bulletin boards. This family room ceiling covered in cork and wood strips for added texture, gives the room a warm, eclectic vibe. The colorful furniture is a cool balance. Note: cork on the ceiling makes it super easy to hang temporary ornaments or lights for a party.
Tin roof, rusted. Usually found on the outside of a home, corrugated tin on the inside of your house is a bold move. Reclaimed tin panels come pre-rusted and well-aged, and are the perfect complement to a classic, bucolic country house. They also function to make a high ceiling feel cozier.
The perfect balance of light and dark comes to this elegant sitting room with a show-stopping ceiling. White overhead is traditional, but the custom plaster relief design is totally unexpected. Dark wood floors along with a dark grey wall color provide warmth and sophistication while the ceiling makes it feel bright and open.
