Wallpaper Adds Ceiling Drama

Black + floral = high-contrast pop

Wallpapered ceilings are hot, hot, hot. If you’ve got a room that deserves some love overhead, listen to Jen Ziemer of Fidddlehead Design Group in Minneapolis. Two types of spaces lend themselves to ceiling wallpaper, she says. Those that have no ceiling detail, and those that do. In ho-hum, cookie-cutter spaces, a papered ceiling creates interest and the illusion of depth, she says, while a dramatic paper on a ceiling that already has beautiful molding enhances the detail. In other words, just about any ceiling can handle wallpaper. This bathroom’s treatment is a double pop, adding an always-in-style black background with an abstract floral. This particular paper is no longer available, but Ziemer suggests Floral Modern Nature Wallpaper in Black and Cream by BD Wall for a similar look.
