Yes, paint walls and ceilings the same. Have used BM Grant Beige many times, it's a rich color that a white or contrasting ceiling will do nothing to enhance.

I agree with painting the ceiling the same color. It actually makes the room feel taller. I've done it in two of my rooms and I love the look.

I always paint ceilings (never white) but if there is a question of a lower ceiling, I take the paint two tones lighter to create the illusion of height.

I was planning to paint my master bedroom with same wall/ceiling color.
It is a large room with high ceilings and I'm hoping to make it feel cozy. I don't want it to feel "taller"...any ideas for me?

Hi djingles, go the other way, paint it two tones darker - this will subtly lower the ceiling.
