Painting Trend – Black Ceilings

Black ceilings sound like they’d be cold and dreary, but I’ve been coming across spaces with black ceilings that are anything but. Painting the ceiling dark creates a clean, bold contrast that when paired with layers of warm texture makes a room sophisticated and intimate. Here are five spaces transformed by bold black ceilings.
