HOME-SPIRATION: Painted Ceilings

From my extremely limited painting experience, I have come to realize that painting the ceiling is possibly the worst and most difficult part of the whole ordeal (so naturally David is the one who has painted all of our ceilings! Thank goodness for him!) This home-spiration, while back breaking, is such a great way to bring color and a bit of quirk to any space! Plus the idea is perfect if you only want to paint one wall, why not the ceiling? Here are some of my favorite home-spirations for painted ceilings.

Stripes! I can imagine you would need a professional for that, but they are so fun!

HOME-SPIRATION: Black Tile

When David and I recently painted our upstairs bedrooms and bathrooms we (well I did, with a few raised eyebrows from David) decided to paint the guest bathroom black. With the new white ceiling, white door, and white trim the color really popped! I love this idea of using black paint or tile to really create a dynamic color scheme. Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images for black tile in any room.

HOME-SPIRATION: Teen Room

I realized over the weekend that I have never really touched on that tricky teen age group and decor! I was lucky enough to have a Dad who painted my bedroom several different colors because I was constantly changing my mind (and after my recent painting endeavor I realize how much work that actually is!) I should have known then that I would fall in love with decor and home styling! Here are a few of my favorite teen room inspirations! Fun, age appropriate and very stylish!

HOME-SPIRATION: Ombre Walls

After spending a few treacherous days painting with my boyfriend I realized how difficult and time consuming the process really is (thankfully he finished when I started back at work!) That’s why I was so shocked by the ombre wall trend! I can’t imagine doing this to one wall let alone several! But I love the look! Here are a few of my favorite home-spiration images and one great tutorial on ombre walls!

HOME-SPIRATION: Black Walls

I think a lot of people (myself included) really shy away from dark colors on the walls. You want your space to not seem crammed and small so we avoid dark colors!…righty? Lately I’ve been really intrigued by the idea of black walls or any super dark colored wall. I saw someone do black walls in their kitchen (crazy right?!) and I LOVED it. Here are my home-spiration images for this idea… Who knows maybe I will try it soon!
