What's Up with Your 5th Wall?

What's Up with Your 5th Wall?

There are days that we wake up wanting to make a radical change to our home. The most practical thing to do is to change the color of your walls to give a different feel to the space. It will sound that simple but many times you ask thousands of questions about the perfect color.

Forget that! And focus on the latest trend of ceiling decoration. Bring your guests´ eyes to your ceiling by stepping up your creativity to the next level!

Tile work, brickwork, wood carving, plasterwork, and ornate metals were emerging in the 12th century as part of the architecture and design of the ceiling, which is the maximum expression of the Mudéjar style.

Revive this style and use vibrant or soft colors with a minimalist or kitsch style to attract the eyes up, shifting the perspective of your guests. Whatever color you choose to paint, add a strip on the wall to give continuity to the design.

If you have any rooms with beams, enhance them by changing them to a vibrant color. However, if you are one who loves to see exposed wood, use a fun design in the ceiling to make it pop.

High Ceilings:
Sometimes it is difficult to decorate houses with high ceilings. If that is your case, take advantage of it! Choose a dark color and it will add a touch of personality to the room.

¨Abstraction allows man to see with his mind what he cannot see physically with his eyes¨ — Arshile Gorky. 

Shapes, forms, colors and textures above your head. Does this sounds like a plan? Abstract designs would be the perfect fit for those who have an artist in their soul.

Do not forget to keep your walls a solid color or a calm pattern if the ceiling design is too busy or vice versa. Play with lighting to enhance the environment and enrich the “5th wall” design.

Use the Mudéjar style you carry inside and dare for more!
