Design Crush: Wallpapered Ceilings

When it comes to wallpaper, your life can become really expensive, really fast.  But with so many beautiful wallpapers out there, it would be a shame to skip out on it completely, which is why I totally love the idea of papering a ceiling.  Wallpaper can add such great visual interest to a room, and on a ceiling it has the opportunity to pop even more than if it were on all four walls.  Think of your ceiling as an accent wall -- the perfect place to paper.  Here are some beautiful examples that this post just couldn't do without.

I really appreciate how traditional this wallpaper is in comparison to the modern tendencies of this room.  Incredibly cool contrast.

A patterned wallpaper is grounded by bold accessory choices to keep this busy accent ceiling in check.

A country kitchen at its finest.

A ladylike burnt orange wallpaper plays off the other beautiful orange colors intermixed with lovely woods.

Geometric patterned wallpaper -- a favorite of mine.

Paisley-like wallpaper instantly glams up this dining room (the mirrored credenza helps out a bit, too!).

Surrounded by this soft purple striped wallpaper, this room is sweet and cottage-inspired.

A graphic-print wallpaper is seemingly random and unexpected in this small space -- but it works!

What do you think of wallpapered ceilings?

    1. I think so, too! And with one accent wall (or one accent ceiling), it's a great way to go if you don't want the commitment of an entire room full of color and pattern, you know? Thanks so much for reading!

  3. I adore wallpapered ceilings! these are some great photos of them!

  4. I love this trend! Especially in small rooms, like a powder room!!! So fun :)

    1. Yes ma'am -- I agree! A small space is where I would do it! :-)
