Need help for vaulted ceilings, paint all around and decor ideas
January 27, 2013 in Design Dilemma
My two eldest children have finally moved out on their own so I am going to redo the entire main living area. It's been neglected for quite a while so its a big job (see the hole in ceiling and blanket on wall covering hole from water damage). My ceilings are vaulted and I have an open layout from the entrance thru living, dining and kitchen. I want a bright, contemporary look, with lots of whites & neutrals, and navy blue accents around. However, I don't want to paint the walls white because they are too high and there is no border or trim at the top & I won't be able to fill them with lots of art & I hate the white ceiling (popcorn is coming off). How can I create a nice flow through the house using different paint shades on walls and ceilings that would also define the different rooms, work with the terracotta color floor tile and also work with my white/navy decor idea. I plan to change kitchen cabs for white ones and my dining set is going away and I plan to buy a kitchen island that would serve as a high kitchen table.
