Make a Space More Intimate
When the ceiling and walls are painted one color, with no contrasting molding, the result is soft and seamless. Architectural color experts recommend trying out a warm shade, like the one shown here—Sherwin-Williams's Rave Red—in a dining room, where the ceiling naturally feels high because everyone is seated around the table. "We're seeing more people continuing color up the walls and onto the ceiling," says Jackie Jordan, a color expert at Sherwin-Williams. "It doesn't make the room seem small, only cozier."
