Painted my tray ceiling

I have a try ceiling in a modern condo that was white and I painted it Dior Gray from Benjamin Moore. It's drastic. Do you like it? I'm undecided.... Should I just go back to white? Thanks
I like it
Go back to a white ceiling

Are you joking? It must remain Dior Gray. Nice work!

This makes me wish we had a ceiling that landed itself to a dark, dramatic color.

Maybe you can just paint the flat edge of the tray as we did....

Change back to white? You're kidding, right? H.O.M.E.R.U.N.

Gorgeous color!!! If and when you are done with the grey, don't be afraid to add a more of a color up there too. Depending on the accents of your kitchen, a great ocean blue or deep eggplant can also work. Sometimes those colors can also feel like neutrals if you get the right tone. Enjoy the grey for now- it looks fabulous! Kudos!

Looks great - I would recommend putting a shimmer or metallic thread sheer across the whole back wall! Good luck.

Wow! The grey looks great. How high are your ceilings? Does the grey feel oppressive to live under? I am curious.

9 feet. It doesn't feel oppressive. The trim and the ceiling that attached to the kitchen is white. Also the white wall still makes the space look open. I'm happy with it.

The gray is fabulous. No one will ever forget their visit to your home (so be sure the food is good).

Thanks for the info on the ceiling height. You inspire me. I love living with grey but have never thought of anything but white for the ceilings and walls. Thanks! Enjoy!

Looks great. I love painting ceilings other than white. Yes it's takes some coordinating, but worth it.
