We painted the beams and ceiling white in our entrance. But it is too stark white and it looks funny.
I was thinking of painting the trim around the door black (FYI). Any suggestions about how to make the entrance way look better?
Thanks

Find the paint strip sample for your wall color and use the lightest or second on that.

What a beautiful space! I would pull the lightest shade from the brick and paint 1-2 shades lighter to create a flow from wall to ceiling.

Waldron designs, are you saying to keep the beams white and paint the ceiling that color?

Exactly. I apologize for being unclear. I do my "houzz-ing" in the evenings with a sleeping baby so I thumb-type!!

I would paint it all one color. If you want, paint the beams 2 shades darker. As far as finding the appropriate color, we are both saying the same thing.
