Here's Why You Should Paint Your Ceiling Black


I've written before about why you should paint your walls black. With the right decorative touches, the moody hue can make a room feel warm and inviting. This year I am back with more black and this time it is going on your ceiling. If you aren’t ready to paint all four walls, painting your ceiling black is the next best thing. It’s bold, unexpected, sexy, and daring. If you still need convincing, here are ten reasons why you should paint your ceiling black.
