I'm not one of those people to run around calling things in or out of style. I kind of believe almost anything can be done well if in the right context. But there is one thing I feel like I don't see enough of - and that's pattern on ceilings. I've become completely obssessed with it lately. I went searching high and low for a photo of what I'm dreaming of - a houndstooth pattern ceiling - and came up empty. I simply don't believe its an original idea and it seems like it wouldn't be too difficult using this houndstooth stencil but I came up dry.
So while I'm dreaming of that, here are my favorite examples of fab 5th walls.
top row: jenna lyons nursery (is there any inch of that house that wasn't gorgeous?)/hudson baby design / 4 men 1 lady
center: shannon kaye, house beautiful
bottom row: making it lovely (ok so this is a cheat since the ceiling is a simple gray but it plays so beautifully with that patterned wallpaper I had to include it!) / vintage revivals
So have any of you strained your back and patterned a ceiling? Is it as hard as it looks. I want one but I'm not sure if I have the skills or patience.
