We think about what color to paint our walls. We’re happy with our hardwood floors, polished concrete, or gorgeous tile, and when we don’t luck into those things with a home, we dream about adding them. Some of us will consider wallpapering a room, or just an accent wall. But how many of us do something interesting with the ceiling of a room?
I’ve noticed quite a few nurseries and kids’ rooms with striped ceilings over the years. It’s the kind of thing you might see and file away as a cute idea for some day, but seeing them all together really cements what a fun look it is!

It’s whimsical and fun, and definitely well-suited to children’s spaces. I could see stripes working well in other rooms too, like maybe a little powder room, or a laundry or mud-room in need of some pep.

If stripes aren’t your thing, perhaps some geometrics may catch your eye?
Triangles and stars both make fantastic repeating patterns as well. (I can’t wait to add a starry sky to my daughter’s room.)
So, let’s resolve to add a little of the unexpected into our homes this year!
Have you ever done anything different to your ceilings, or do you stick with plain white?
