My glam ceiling!

(Dansk versio n nederst)

I thought I could do this in a sec and I thought it would be a pain in the A.., it has taken me ages, BUT it has actually been quite fun and relaxing – especially now when I see the result and we no longer has to look up at a WHITE hospital-like ceiling – IM a sucker for gold and glam, but another option could haven been turquoise – it would also be awesome to our soon to come blue walls 😉 If you have too much time and wanna decorate your ceiling all you need is a brush, paint and a template, maybe some blue tack and a sponge – here is how I did it:

1. Find a pattern you like – you can either make yourself using thick cardboard or plastic, or you can do as I did, buy a template – you´ll find loads of stencil libraries on the web 😉 Or get inspired here!

2. Kick it off in one of the corners, it will ease the struggle to make the pattern in a straight line – if thats what you want! My template was made of plastic so I used some blue tack to stick it to the ceiling while painting.

3. As you might know I am a huge fan of edgy and glamorous – that explains why I decided to make every fifth pattern transparent. For that I used a sponge softly pressed on the template.

AND finally done after too many hours 😉

Jeg troede, jeg ku gøre det på et split sekund, og jeg var overbevist om, at det ville være et helvede at lave … det har taget mig alt for mange timer, men det har faktisk været overraskende sjovt og afslappende – især nu når jeg ser resultatet, og vi ikke længere skal glo op på et hospital-hvidt loft – Jeg er en sucker for guld og glamour, men en anden mulighed kunne også været turkis – det ville også være super fedt til vores meget SNART kommende blå vægge 😉 Hvis du har for meget tid og vil dekorere dit loft, er alt du behøver en pensel, maling og en skabelon, måske noget blue tack og en svamp – sådan gjorde jeg:

1. Find et mønster du kan lide – du kan enten lave en skabelon selv på tykt pap eller plastik, eller du kan gøre, som jeg gjorde, købe en skabelon – der findes en masse stencil biblioteker på nettet 😉 eller bliv inspireret her! 

2. Start i et hjørne, det gør det lettere at vinde kampen for at holde mønsteret i en lige linie – hvis det er det, du vil! Min skabelon var af plastik, så jeg brugte blue tack til at sætte det fast i loftet, mens jeg malede.

3. Som du måske ved, er jeg stor fan af glamour med kant – derfor, besluttede jeg at lave hver femte mønster gennemsigtigt. Jeg brugte en svamp, som jeg blødt pressede på skabelonen.

OG, ENDELIG FÆRDIG 🙂

IM OFF TO THAILAND WITH MY MOM, CANT WAIT…

Little thing, BIG difference!

(Dansk version nederst)

To create the illusion that your ceiling is higher, play with coloring the the wall, the woodwork and the ceiling in the same color – it will make the walls appear taller and it will cheat the eye to be less aware of when the walls end. As you might already know I am crazy about dark colored walls ALSO in small spaces, might go as far as saying ESPECIALLY in small spaces 😉

VERY NICE rooms, but to me, they seem unfinished – the contrast between the wall and ceiling makes the room too divided – like a box with a wrong lid 😉

SEE THE DIFFERENCE???

A lighter version is to paint the ceiling in a shade of the wall color!

Skab en illusion, skab et rum med højt til loftet!! Leg med at male vægge, træværk og loft i samme farve – det vil gøre, at der synes højere til loftet. Det snyder øjet og fjerner fokus på, hvornår væggene ender. Som du måske allerede har opdaget, er jeg vild med mørke vægge OGSÅ i små rum, måske især i små rum 😉

VIRKELIG FLOTTE rum, men for mig, ser de ufærdige ud – kontrasten mellem væg og loft gør rummet opdelt – som en æske med et forkert låg 😉

DONT BE AFRAID OF THE DARK 🙂

HAPPY SATURDAY NIGHT ❤

INVITE YOUR CEILING – to the funky party!

I have a huge passion for funky ceilings! I am sick and tired of white ceilings – I have said it before and I say it again, the ceiling is as much a part of the room as the walls – why so afraid of doing something crazy!?

I know these stripy-options might be a bit over the edge for some people, but nevertheless I want to show you how including the ceiling in the interior design gives a complete look! AND I love to go aaaaaaall the way!

AND FOR THE CLASSIC – see the effect?

DONT BE SCARED TO GO CRAZY ON THE CEILING – YOU CAN ALWAYS RE-PAINT IT!

What is it about ceilings, why do they have to be SO white??  Since I was a kid I always wondered why everybody had white ceilings and colored walls, it seemed to me that the room was cut in two pieces and did not belong together! Or almost even worse if both walls and ceilings were painted white I felt like I got blind (in Denmark we call it snow-blind, does it make sense to you? 🙂 ). I did not understand why everybody loved to lay on the grass or at the beach looking up in the beautiful blue sky (maybe because it very seldom shows up in Denmark) but when we went inside and to lay in the bed we were all looking up at a white ceiling, drained from any kind of stimulation – just nothing! It did not make sense to me, and it still doesn’t – why are so many people so afraid of painting the ceiling?

Ive heard many arguments but the most usual is that if you paint the ceiling it gives the impression of falling down to your head – I see the point, but I DO NOT agree! As long as you consider the color and the rest of the interior, I am convinced that painting the ceiling will actually give the impression that it actually belongs the room!

The trend in Scandinavia is right now VERY WHITE and minimalistic but black ceilings are getting in, which I think is really cool!

I know its a bit of a jump if you are a real sucker for “Scandinavia interior style” and it will take a bit of daring to paint a ceiling black especially because most of us don’t live in spaces with lofty ceilings (which I think is the biggest concern) but I am sure, once you go black…!!!

Color experts actually say that a dark ceiling helps make a space feel more intimate! I know its a bit extreme to jump straight to black, but that was what I felt for today 😉 But I will come up with less radical changes in future posts on ceilings, paint and decoration, but try to consider it next time you look up … and let me know please!! 🙂
