Its been a while since I painted the ceiling in my office my custom created Rich Pink (which I have named Newport Pink) and I must say I have loved it every day since it was completed. It adds verve, vigour and humour to the day while always sparking creative and out of the box thinking. I created the colour through a mixing of some of my favourite Pinks… one part Honeysuckle Pink by Pantone…one part Hollyhock by Martha Stewart…a dash of Razzle Dazzle by Benjamin Moore (not for the faint of heart) and a little Rose Fantasy by Pittsburgh Paints. The end result is stunningly warm, rich and evocative of both Pillow Talk and Sex and the City. Its funny that we always opt for “builder white” for our ceilings (that heinous blue white that never seems to get changed in our homes). I DEEPLY encourage you to paint your ceiling…if not Pink (it is specific to space and usage) then make sure to opt for a colour deeper than your trim. You NEVER want your ceiling to be the focal point in your home or office. Try Cloud White by Benjamin Moore and do your trim Oxford White…Or for the more brave and brazen…try adding a pale version of your overall wall colour. What it really comes down to is NOT opting for the standard and the boring and create a space that represents you and how you want to use the space.
The photos are from when it was first done…I will make sure to take some glossy new ones for you all.
