I love the idea of adding visual interest to the ceilings in a home.  Why not try something different in at least one space in your home?

I like this idea…high gloss ceilings!  Here, interior designer Beth Webb used a super glossy pale blue paint on the curved ceilings in this hallway and living room.  The ceiling color contrasts ever so slightly with the white walls throughout the rooms.   The light blue is reminiscent of a bright sky on an early spring day.  Love it.  The ceiling almost looks like it has had several coats of lacquer applied to it.  I’m sure this look can be achieved with a super high gloss paint.

What do you think of this design idea?

I like the idea of using a pale color on the ceiling too…nothing too bold or contrasting…just adds some texture and depth to the rooms.

Do weigh in!  Do you love it or dislike it? Comment below.

Happy Wednesday (again)!

    • How did you add the gloss? There are no good recommended ways to achieve the look, other than hihire a professional. Please help?

  1. Superbe! Very chic. My painter would probably hate me if I asked him to do it in one of my projects: it would have to be so perfect! I’ll challenge him one day J. Do you know the name of the paint color?

  2. Oooh! I love it. Wish I had flat ceilings . . . just wouldn’t be the same on texture.

    Excuse my ignorance, but can anyone tell me what the hardware on the French doors is called? I’m talking about the rods that run the length of the door (also seen on cabinets.) I really want to add them in my house, but I can’t find them in any hardware websites.
