A dark color on the ceiling is a great way to add a bit of drama and interest to a room. This works especially well if you have tall ceilings and lots of natural light. Pictured - a neutral room with a black ceiling and ornate ceiling medallion.
I would love a bedroom with French doors that open to a little private garden space. Once our lives regulate a little, we have plans to turn our master bedroom's double windows into French doors that lead into the back yard.
