The Most Incredible Wallpaper– On The Ceiling!

Every room should make some kind of statement, and wallpapering a ceiling may be one of the best ways to make an extreme statement without making it too busy. At this point in life, ceilings are as neglected as a feral cat and I’m thinking this needs to change IMMEDIATELY (for the ceilings and the cats)! I love wallpaper, especially patterned wallpaper, but when you add a big design to a whole wall or entire room it is pretty easy to make your beautiful space a little more cluttered than you’d hoped. BUT, when you Cover the ceiling with incredible wallpaper you avoid the clutter because nothing, besides a couple air vents and (hopefully) a fab chandelier, sits against it. Read on to see this trend in action!


I love this dining room. I find it interesting that the entire room is composed of straight lines and neutral hues, yet the ceiling is covered in a wallpaper with curved lines and lots of colors. It adds a nice contrast to the simple lines throughout the rest of the space.

This space is so so fresh and pretty. The contrast of black, white, and gold and intentional use of mixed metals is fabulous, plus the spotted ceiling is such a fun element of surprise. This room makes me want to bring up a side-point: It’s common to think that the metal throughout a home should be the same. This can be true and definitely an easy way to keep things cohesive, BUT, I do think it’s a great idea to mix things up and use brushed nickel or chrome throughout and add in a statement brass Chandelier. It keeps things interesting and fun.

The Art Deco style wallpaper on the ceiling is a fabulous statement, and the brass chandelier and velvet upholstered chair add a fun pop of color. Notice the brushed nickel hardware and statement brass chandelier??!

I love the goldfish wallpaper in this bathroom. If you are a bit nervous of bold wallpaper, put it in a powder room.

The gold fish and gold hardware are so much fun in this amazing bathroom by Emily Murray of the Pink House Blog. In fact, if you get a chance you should check out her site. She has such fun taste and it exudes through her designs, and she’s hilarious.

Gold, black and white are like peanut butter and jelly–perfect compliments. (Although in my mind gold goes with everything)

Who doesn’t love a good floral print?? And better yet, this is in a hotel! I mean, that’s pretty sweet! Plus, the other rooms have wallpapered ceilings too! Besides the wallpaper, this room is kept pretty simple with a few pops of color, which allows the ceiling to take the lead.

Everything about this room is wild. I love the total clash of everything. When it all clashes it all makes sense.

Yes, I love the spotted ceiling and the contemporary vibe it gives to this transitional room, but the light washed brick wall may be even better. The runner and vintage inspired (or is it actual vintage???) wall art is fab too. Overall, I’d like to take this kitchen home.
