Question
We have just moved and want to paint our living area and entranceway.  This 2 areas have vaulted ceilings  Is it ok to paint the ceiling the same colour as the wall, thought it might look ok, but not sure?   We have picked a beige tone called Sand Fossil,  we also have picked a contrasting color for the kitchen which is Prarie Dust, would these 2 colours be o.k? Thank YOu for your advice

Answer
Dawn:

Do not paint the ceilings the same color as the wall there will be no contrast in height if you really and truly want to paint the ceilings than paint in 25 or 30% of the wall color however, I think you will think there is not contrast in depth when everything is the same color.

Thanks
