Let's talk PAINTED CEILINGS

I've been seeing a lot of painted ceilings lately, and let me tell you, I am intrigued! Which means...I've been looking at ALL my ceilings and considering which I can paint!

Now - I do love white. And 99.9% of ceilings in every house are white. But sometimes...a space calls for some extra. And that might come in the form of a painted (other than white) ceiling...let's check out some inspiration pics!

When I first started thinking about painted ceilings, I figured you could only really do it in a room with crown molding, but the middle pic doesn't have crown and I've seen others without crown that look good, so I changed my mind on that. (BTW, I sourced these images from pinterest, which you can see more of here.

So where would be a good place to do painted ceilings? A bathroom would be a great place to start! I'd also consider a dining room or bedroom. Now here's the thing...for me, some of my ceilings are smooth but most are textured. UGH. I wouldn't paint textured ceilings a color. I don't think the texture should be highlighted (and I would LOVE to rid my house of textured ceilings. That's on my list of things to look into doing - not even sure how or what that involves). 

What do you think of painted ceilings? Would it be something you'd like to try?
