Philippa said her father used to always say, "don't forget to look up!"  And he meant at ceilings.  People often forget about the fabulous ways to have some fun up above.  Ceilings don't just have to be "ceiling white".

This is pretty incredible.  Jeff Akseizer filled these coffers at the 2015 DC Design House with a surprising element - birch branches.  What a beautiful texture and a lovely contrast to the modern light fixture. {Via Washingtonian}

A paint color on the ceiling (besides white) in a matte finish or a high gloss is a way to make a statement while keeping the workload to a minimum.

I still love this pink ceiling (actually this whole room) that I spotted on Houzz years ago.

A high gloss, black ceiling is just stunning! {Via Elle Decor}

Painted coffers don't require a massive budget and they are quite eye catching.  By the way, I am crazy about this space, especially those windows.  Love.  {Via Houzz}

For those of you with a steady hand, a striped ceiling brings a very fun element to a space.

I love the way the ceiling stripes echo those on the floor.  The larger scale on the ceiling keeps the space from feeling overwhelming.  {Via Elle Decor}

You can't go wrong with wallpaper on the ceiling... or the walls... or just about anywhere!

Hygge and West's wallpaper - Daydream - is the perfect ceiling treatment in this little girl's room.

Kelly Wearstler magic in Cameron Diaz's guest bedroom.  Some metallic wallpaper on the ceiling that continues the brass tones seen throughout the space.  {Via Elle Decor}
