Painting Dilemma / where do I END the wall color / ceiling white?
KismetMarch 3, 2013
I am painting the walls a soft gray-green and painting the ceiling , beams and trim white
Should the wall color extend to the ceiling or stop at the bump-out that runs horizontally across the back wall?
Thanks for your suggestions!

If you must paint beams...paint them and the soffit, white continue your color up to the tallest ceiling, include painting the vents to make them disappear. Add a large piece if art with console table to make a beautiful focal wall. Put a track light on tallest ceiling where the power comes in to shoot light all around.

I love your beams the way they are but I agree with the earlier post about how to paint the walls and the placement of the track light.

I would paint all of it gray including the ceiling with just white beams and trim. It will keep the eye moving and accent the beams. Taylor Lombardo Architects The second pic is an example of how all the walls blend together when you do pain everything one color. You don't see all the angles and the eye keeps going to the ceiling and beams. Atherton, California Estate by Markay Johnson Construction
