Black Ceilings

My sweet friend Pam requested I do a post on black ceilings.  She has an amazing eye for design and has spectacular taste! 
I will take requests from her anytime!
Here you go, Pam!
I really love a black/dark ceiling.  I have mostly experienced them in a restaurant/retail setting, but it seems to be on the rise in the residential arena.  Some would say it makes them feel closed in, but the general consensus for most folks is that it visually draws the eye up.  I am personally in agreement with the latter.  I am crazy about the look of it!

Everything about his room is delicious.  The black window frames balance perfectly with the black ceiling. 
The textures, patterns and color pops are a harmonious marriage.

This dining room is a brilliant mix of modern, rustic and elegant--3 of my favorites combined!

This entryway/hallway lends high contrast to some of the warm tones of outlying rooms.

Seriously, could you just die over this bathroom?

After seeing this pic, I am totally reconsidering painting my porch ceiling a very dark chocolate.

Black ceilings--thumbs up or thumbs down?

  1. Gorgeous. You would think black on the ceiling would feel heavy, but it doesn't. It adds a perfect touch of drama, love it!

    1. I agree! I think it warms a space up a bit too.


I LOVE your comments; keep them coming!
