Chin Up! Wallpapering the Ceiling

Chin Up! Wallpapering the Ceiling

I spotted this adorable idea in the last issue of HGTV magazine.  This creative mom wallpapered her three daughters’ ceilings – all the same wallpaper but in different colorways.  How great is that idea?!





This wallpaper is called Daydream by Hygge & West – comes in a ton of different colors.





I love, too, that she didn’t spend a fortune papering all four walls (just the “5th wall”).




We don’t really see wallpaper on a ceiling very often, despite wallpaper’s raging comeback.  And when we do, it’s usually in a kid’s room.  (Why is that?  Maybe because it looks whimsical?).

How about this one? This yellow stripe is just about the cutest idea I have ever seen for a baby’s room.

Wallpapered ceilings also work when a room is super small, like a powder room or a room with a low ceiling. It almost gives the effect of a jewel box:

See how this room is really small?  The dark walls and the pretty trellis wallpaper on the ceiling really draw your eye up.  Makes the room feel…roomier.

I think I’m way into this idea!  I can’t wait to use this on a future project.  What are your thoughts?  Yay or nay on wallpapering the ceiling?
