Ogee Moulding around ceiling
There is a myriad of different color schemes you can do with these types of features. Such as bringing the ceiling color down to a horizontal piece of moulding placed about a foot from the wall and ceiling line.
Another thing to consider is the height of your ceiling. Exceptionally high ceilings tend to appear lower when painted with a color other than white.
One thing to be cautious of is that although ceiling colors can help unify a space, if all of the rooms are completely different, it can create a disjointed feeling as you walk from one room to another.
Here are a couple techniques you could do to prevent this problem from happening:
1. You can paint the ceiling color a lighter shade of the wall color which can create a unique, unified feel in a room. With this strategy, you have to consider the flow of the rest of the house. In order to keep a common theme throughout the house, you can do this technique with each room.
2. Or, one of the more common strategies is to pick one unifying color to be used on the ceilings throughout all rooms of a house and then use accent colors for the rooms with mouldings or different architectural features.
