Don't Forget The Ceiling - The 5th Wall

Don't forget the ceiling when you are redecorating a room! It is now known as the 5th wall and on occasion used as an accent. You are less likely to see imperfections with Benjamin Moore's Waterborne CeilingBenjamin Moore Waterborne Ceiling Paint Paint as it is ultra flat and gives off minimum glare. The ceiling paint can be tinted to all of the Benjamin Moore colors.

Ceiling Tip: When repainting a room always start with the ceiling then move on to the walls. Use a roller with a telescoping handle and apply two coats.

Boys Playroom
The brown and green stripe on the ceiling actually makes the room look higher. Painting the back of the shelving really pulls the room together.  

Girls Bedroom
Go bold with this coral and white striped ceiling. The aqua gives the room a serene feel. Every young girl will love this!

Included in Benjamin Moore's 2013 Color Trends is Marblehead Gold (HC-11). Here they have applied it to the ceiling for that punch of color. The pairing with the Polo Blue (2062-10) adds a flare of sophistication. 

Dining Room
The Gossamer Blue (2123-40) on the ceiling here really lends the room to an intimate dining space. The crown molding in the blue is the perfect finishing touch.
