In my last home I painted the main part of the home taupe and painted the ceilings throughout the home with the same color. It helped bring the taupe into the bedrooms and bathrooms and brought a sense of harmony to the color pallet.

I drove my husband nuts when I told him that I wanted every ceiling in a different tinted white to coordinate with the wall colors. He didn’t love the painting but he loves the look.

When I painted my kitchen, which was on the small side, I wanted the walls and ceiling color to be the same. As someone earlier commented, the color appeared much darker on the ceiling than on the walls - making the ceiling look "heavy". I had to cut the paint 50% with base white to create the effect I desired. Definitely look at the color over-head!
