What Houzz contributors are saying:
Join the dark side. We're often told that dark colors recede — and for walls, I agree. But when the dark color is on the ceiling, as in the room here, it reduces the perceived distance. Gravity is at play here, too. The dark color works well because the substantial stone fireplace appears as though it could bear the weight.
