    Default Anyone have a red ceiling?

    We are getting our house painted next week and the painter really wants to do a red ceiling in our foyer. It's a two story foyer that leads into the upstairs hallway. I'm SCARED! He says it looks amazing, he's very good and I do trust him, but I'm SCARED!

    Anyone else have anything like this....can you share some pictures?

    Thanks!

    We have an eggplant purple ceiling in our bedroom, which has pretty low ceilings. I love it, but then again, I love bold deep colors and have them all over my house. I dint' have any pics, though.

    Do you have anything else red in your house? It sounds like it could be quite lovely, in the correct shade of red, but unless you have somewhat of a red color scheme, or unless you plan on adding some red via a rug or a couple of throw pillows or whatever, I think it would be odd.

    Also, red is tricky. If you want an elegant, rich vibe, you have to be careful not to chose a bright, primary color like red, for example.

    It does sound lovely though, and if you are a bit uncomfortable with color but still want to take a big step, a ceiling is less in your face than a wall.

    My mom has the ceiling in her bathroom red... I'll see if she can get a picture and send it to me!

    It looks really cool, the walls are a light cream/taupe and there is white crown.

    Chiming in very late, but we have a red ceiling in our dining room. We love it, but it definitely creates an odd dimensional effect. Our dining room appears to have a much lower ceiling than any room in the house - it doesn't - we measured. One other thing that we found to be important was to have it done professionally.
