Most of us don't give much thought to using the ceiling as a showcase in our homes, but many ceilings beg for that kind of attention. So many homes are built with beautiful ceiling details and the decorative painting just adds to the drama that the builder was trying to create. I've decided to feature a few beautiful ceilings for you to admire.
Here's a beautiful tropical painted ceiling by artist Kim Goins Kosek.
Here's a ceiling that a homeowner posted on a DIY crafter's forum. I don't know who painted this, but I think this is excellent work for a non-professional. It just goes to show that you don't have to pay big bucks to get a fabulous look. I little bit of paint and a lot of patience is needed though.
This fabulous stenciled ceiling was done by Faux By Kathy.
I love this sky ceiling by Ament Interiors.
I have always loved Royal Design Studios stencils. Here's a ceiling done with one of her Modello Designs.
Not all ceilings need to be terribly complicated. This simple stencil adds more drama when repeated. Stencil painting by Art Works.
Art Works also stenciled this ceiling medallion over a faux finished treatment.
Beautiful right? This makes my plain ceilings look down right under dressed. Which is your favorite ceiling? If you have done anything unusual to dress up your ceilings, please comment and tell me about it.
