more ceiling choices

ceiling no-no-no-no-no-nos

I anticipate any pattern on the ceiling is going to be too much in competition with the carpet, but let's take a look.

Nope.

DSCN5051

Nope.

DSCN5052

Huh.  I like that.

DSCN5049

Nope.

Let's try off-white...first a grayish white, then a cream...though in the pictures you probably won't be able to tell the difference...

DSCN5053

Meh.

DSCN5054

Better.  It's boring but it works. 

What if I repeat the grid in the carpet on the ceiling?

DSCN5055

Yuck.  That was wasted cricut time.

 

So....stripes or creamy white?  What do you think?

I actually really like the stripes. There's a pattern but it's somewhat muted looking and doesn't compete with the carpet.

Kat

What about wood flooring strips on the ceiling? Painted. It's got lines and texture, but could be white and neutral.

And I like creamy white

Pernille

I'd go for the stripes. Just that little bit more, eh, oomph.

Elaine

Creamy white - the stripes are nice but I like the creamy white just a little bit better.

Jodi Hippler

Shiny gold, all one color but stacked layers of smaller squares like tin ceiling. Maybe even a couple skylights. Worth an audition?

brae

Yep, the stripes are marvelous! :D

Susan

I want more choices!

Elaine

I like the stripes, the lines direct your eyes down to the bookcases and the color blends in well with the room. At first I thought it was beadboard.

The creamy white is bright enough that it creates a noticeable blank area.

I agree with the stripes, or maybe Kat's idea of tongue and groove wood painted. Have you tried a plain colour but darker, like something in the carpet, or a couple of shades darker than the walls? Just a thought.
