Did you know that there are 5 walls in a room and not four! Look up, don't be afraid to put color on your ceiling. My favorite is Palladian Blue, Benjamin Moore HC-144.

A color on the ceiling adds uniqueness, style and warmth. If your room is wallpapered, pull out a color from the paper and paint the ceiling with it. This works well in bathrooms and bedrooms. If you have a coffered or trey ceiling, it's a must to put some color on it. Check out these pictures.
