What color for the ceiling??
Debowski Services
January 25, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I just plastered this bathroom, it was pretty elaborate. So I'm finding it difficult to decide what to do to the ceiling.

Use a cream colored ceiling paint. Is the crown cream colored? - it looks different than the ceiling.

I think so. I would use the color of the molding and keep it simple. There is a lot going on with this wall!

Not to gild the lily, but....the plastering is calling for a strong finish...gold leaf? Bronze?

Have you considered an antique white tin ceiling?

You could keep the ceiling simple and get a seriously awesome light fixture. I'm thinking gold and crystal chandelier.

I think the gold ceiling wouldn't be overdoing it! I once had a powder room that we did in dark green, plum red and gold. It was opulent from ceiling to floor and it felt like you were in a jewel box!

You need a very dark ceiling to bring the ceiling down to make the room look better proportioned. Pick out a deep red or reddish brown from the wall. It can't say white.

I'd keep your crown molding the color of your woodwork and do a gold ceiling as pebblebeachcottage recommended. Do you have any gold left from your project? Looks like a small crystal chandelier would look good too.

Gold leaf with ceiling medallion the crown color for a little relief. It will cut down on too much gold so the light fixture isn't absorbed into the gold abyss. :-) Gold modern fixture, no crystals. If you start adding crystals I think we are in trouble. Like a woman with too much jewelry. The light will bounce off the crystals, hit the wall, sparkle around on the gold...wow...you could charge for the light show. :-) LOVE the wall!

what exactly does the venitian plaster do? create texture and thickness which you painted with what? what do you mean by multipe layers? How did that work? Did you paint each layer and let dry and than plaster and paint again? Did you use different shades of red? can you explain a bit more. I would like to try this. thank you

http://www.flickr.com/photos/monarch_studio1/3470472080/in/photostream Use the darkest tone for your crown and a secondary tone (lighter than crown) for your ceiling or apply a very fine textured grass cloth that coordinates with the plaster and again anchor everything with the deepest tone for your crown. The linear aspect of the grass cloth will actually ground and enhance the movement of your walls

Interesting Karen. I would never have thought of grass cloth on a ceiling! Good to know.
