Wallpaper for the Ceiling

We like to think of the ceiling as the fifth wall. We love wallpaper and we are all for using it everywhere from inside bookshelves to up-cycled tabletops… and we absolutely recommend trying it on the ceiling! There is no reason why your ceiling has to be white, and even if it is white, why not add some texture and pattern? Check out these inspiring rooms below featuring wallpaper as an unexpectedly chic accent from above.

Black and white is a classic and sophisticated palette for a bathroom, equally well suited to a contemporary space as a retro styled room. This posh bathroom mixes fine, time honored materials like marble, dark wood and clean white tile to achieve a classy feel, then mixes in some starlet worthy glamour with a striking black & white damask pattern! Extending the wallpaper to the ceiling adds so much drama to the look.
