I love this post. I think that painted cieginls can be such a nice element in a room. I went to a showhouse last year, and the walls were BM linen white, the cieginls were Sherwin Williams sea salt, the curtains were sheer linen in the same tone as the ceiling, and the rug had the same green/blue as the ceiling and the curtains, and it was so beautiful. The walls in my family room are BM Harbour Town (a green) and the cieginls are 1/2 strength. It is amazing how different the color looks on the ceiling the walls have a yellow undertone (to my eye), but the ceiling seems to have a blue undertone. It all looks fine, but I notice this sometimes.I am really liking the look of a room that has the wall, ceiling, and trim all painted in the same color, just different finishes. I am also really liking the look of a ceiling that is somewhat glossy!
