A bright and brilliant ornately-painted ceiling #Decor & Decorating#canada#colorful#great-ideas#Minnesota May 15 2012 | Cat Rocketship Photo via Lloyd's Blog. Used with permission. Wayyy up in the north of Minnesota — 26 miles from Canada — is the Naniboujou Lodge, built in the 1920s to host rich white dudes' hunting parties. The Shining-esque hotel and restaurant is still chugging along, and still has its AMAZING and original painted ceiling. It has never been repainted! It looks like it could have been designed yesterday…and WOW I suddenly want to paint almost-neon stripes on the ceiling of my front room. But would this work in a low-ceilinged space, or is that just a recipe for headaches? See more photos of the Naniboujou Lodge here. ᔥ Lloyd's Blog Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here. Edited text* Enter your suggested copyedit here.

I love painted ceilings. Reply It could work in a smaller space if you did wider stripes maybe. Reply And kept the colors somewhat light, I think. Lighter colors keep a room looking big, and I think darker colors could get oppressive. Especially since we're used to white ceilings anyway (sadly). Reply Oh the Naniboujou is famous here in Minnesota! Reply I love the Naniboujou lodge! I had lunch there years ago. It's really an amazing place. Reply Wow! Love this! The cottage we're buying has really low cellings and i've been thinking about painting them. I guess if you played on the fact that the room would feel smaller and turned the room into a really cosy snug or just picked a couple of quite light colours it might work. Dulux in the UK do light reflecting paints that might be a good idea for this. Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
