the fifth wall

 Never forget the ceiling when painting a room.

The fifth wall (ceiling) is quite often left out and only painted white, while other times of course white is the perfect colour for it. We are talking about the rooms that are usually off whites or neutrals, the ones that need a kick start and a WOW. 5e1d0c3191618b1aea6ec542299d32f2This room is only neutral and white, until you look up to the splash of bold orange. So fun. 0c4ac65e91277a5447bd2dbadf05c48e 23afe5b71c92aee526205d5582ee91fbNot sure what colour to paint your ceiling? Take a cue from your accents pillows and accessories, there is nothing boring about this neutral space now. 01bbeda127e5ae1c3eb598f94f7f7e01Go bold or go home. This living room is so rich and colourful. We love the shot of luxe by painting the ceiling gold which ties in with the furnishings. e7fbf53adeb4ea44ee6f81e7a6169351We also love the idea in wallpapered room, choosing a colour from the paper and bringing on to the ceiling really can really unify a space.

The blue ceiling is unexpected and can be repainted easily if the owners get sick of it. We love it.
