Painted Ceilings

A few years ago, I had a client who wanted to paint the ceiling of her daughter's room pink. In fact the photo below was her inspiration, and I must say it turned out great!! Ceilings are often forgotten in the painting scheme.  While blue remains the most popular ceiling color, over the years I've used pink, orange, yellow, green and metallic silver...all to raving reviews! Below are some great examples of the how a little paint above can create an eye-catching room!

Black Rooms

It's been a month since my last post and it seems like ages ago.  In the last 4 weeks we had a spectacular wedding in the outer banks of North Carolina (thankfully the weekend before Sandy), a Super Storm and a Snow Storm!  Luckily we did not have any major damage from the storm but we did lose power for nine days!  I did feel guilty while many of my neighbors weathered the power outage in their cold and pitch black homes for nine nights while we stayed dry and warm, thanks to good friends with a generator who shared their home with us.

There is no great segway to this post....but I thought it would be fitting to feature some black painted rooms.  It's a very daring paint color, but I think it's worth it if you are looking for some high drama in your room.

It's been 15 days since the storm and there are still thousands of people without power or worse yet, without homes.   My thoughts and prayers are with all those who continue to suffer from Sandy's destruction.
