Ceiling Beams and Ceiling; Need Updating and Painting Advice
July 29, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We just purchased a house that needs updating and new colors to fit our taste. The living room is very dark; deep red carpeting and walls, brown paneled ceiling and dark brown ceiling beams. We will be dry walling over the paneling on the ceiling, and I'd like to go with a traditional butter color with white trim and moldings. So....should I pant the ceiling beams white? Should I paint the ceiling beams and the ceiling itself white and have yellow walls? Should I choose three complementary shades of yellow/gold and paint the ceiling, walls, and beams a different color? OR keep the dark beams, white ceiling, and soft yellow walls? Any advice would be appreciated .
