Ever Forget About the Fifth Wall...? / Den femte veggen

The ceiling is in my opinion the most overlooked part of a decor. I've gathered some examples of why it's so important not to ignore your fifth wall.

Taket er i min mening den mest ignorerte delen av et interiør. Jeg har samlet noen eksempler som viser hvilken forskjell taket kan gjøre i et interiør. Ikke ignorer den femte veggen din.

What's your take on the ceiling? Do you leave it white, or is color a must for you as well?

Hva er din mening? Hvitt som kritt, eller er farge et must for deg også?

Her var det jammen meg mye flott inspirasjon og hente- takk for det :-)

Likte spesielt det lilla rommet fra House beautiful der taket er malt i samme farge som resten av rommet- skapte en god harmoni :-)

Klem fra meg

So so true! That black and white striped room is wild and crazy!

Love the idea of stripes or pattern on a nursery ceiling...because that little guy (girl) is always looking up!

I love your blog and all of the inspired interiors! I especially love the last picture and I like the color, I think it is what makes the interior unique. I am studying interior design - I will be sure to keep on stopping by your blog. Also, if you want I am having a chocolate giveaway if you want to participate at my blog. :)

Kvinnse said...

Fytti så masse kult. Jeg fikk også lyst til å male taket :o). Stakkar mannen i huset. Han blir nok sprø av mine hyppige innfall... :o)
Du har en veldig fin blogg. Gøy å følge deg. Du gir god inspirasjon!!

Snøstorm said...

Ja, hvorfor i all verden dekorerer vi ikke taket? Mystisk. For å svare på koselig kommentar på bloggen min så lager jeg ikke på engelsk nå, men har planer om å gjøre det. Hvis du skulle ønske noe med engelsk tekst, så er det bare å si ifra så lager jeg det. :D Kjempefin blogg! Utrolig vakkert der dere skal gifte dere.

Julia @ Hooked on Houses said...

What a beautiful collection of images that showcase ceilings! Very inspiring. I'm afraid mine are all basic white, however.

Style Redux 2 said...

Such a wonderful roundup of ideas on this subject. I love ceiling treatments-such an overlooked opportunity.

Snøstorm said...

Hei og hå! Jeg kan da alltids lage noen engelske plakater, skal vite. :) Skal se på det litt senere - må bare finne en laptop (den har gjemt seg i stua et sted) for det er sikkert en fin ting å gjøre på sofaen. :P

FROM THE RIGHT BANK said...

You are so, so right about this! The ceiling can change the entire feel of the room but I think it gets overlooked most of the time. This is an excellent post, Dagny, with really great images.

Nettan said...

Så sant det du säger..blir nog oftast lite bortglömt! Själv har jag ju bara ita tack överallt, släta eller panel!
Velade faktiskt lite fram å tillbaks med sprutan, men på inrådan av både barnmorska och läkaren bestämde jag mig..å det känns faktiskt bra nu!
Hoppas du å magen mår fint;-)
Kram Nettan

Snøstorm said...

hei og hoppsann! har laget noen engelske alfabetplakater. Ta en titt på bloggen min for å se dem. :)

MissBliss said...

just beautiful! now i want to paint all ceilings... the blue ones are so sky like :)

CHÂTEAU DE KONSTANSE said...

Lekre bilder med masse inspirasjon!
Taket er helt klart en "glemt" vegg som en ofte (av vane?) bare maler hvitt...

Jeg husker jeg drømte om stjernehimmel som liten, og gjerne et par engler flyvende rundt i skyene..thihi
Det krever sine rom, men den dagen jeg flytter inn i et slott blir det en realitet*s*

Håper ellers alt står bra til med mor og babis:-)

Ha en fin uke!

Living It At Home said...

Hello from Massachusetts! I love these images. The "fifth wall" really is a forgotten area. I am going to try something interesting on my office ceiling. I only use the room, so it will be fun.

Thank you so much, I love your blog.

Check out some of the decorating I have done in my colonial in the Boston area. Thanks, Jamilyn

Dagny @ Beautiful Living said...

A tiny bit of heaven - Enig, det rommet er nydelig. Soverommet vårt er ett av de siste rommene på listen min, er absolutt ikke fornøyd med det i dag. Det rommet fra HB har mange av komponentene jeg ser etter :)

Victoria Art - I just checked out her post, thanks for the heads up!! :D

Viera - Thank you :)

Linda - I completely agree about the nursery, that's why we put pom poms over the bed :)

My f.a.m.b. - Thank you! Have corrected the post now! :D :D

Simply Grove - Thanks!! :D

Ninas Drops - Gulltaket ditt er fantastisk!! ;)

OceanDreams - just left the LONGEST comment in your chocolate giveaeway! I'm in!!

Kvinnse - Det var utrolig hyggelig å høre :) Og det er bare å male taket, garantert suksess!! Har lyst til å male alle takene selv, men sambo har nektet å gjennomføre noen prosjekter de neste 6 mnd... Hmppf..

Snøstorm - Tusen takk skal du ha :) Jeg lurer på det samme med taket, rommet blir mye mer helhetlig når taket inkorporeres. Plakatene dine kommer i innlegg i morgen, der er bare utrolig søte!! :D

Julia - Thank you :) Most of mine are white too, I'm afraid... Except for the master bedroom. We're going to have to do something about that though... Maybe a good project next year?

Style Redux - I know! Totally frustrating :D

Alek - Thank you so much :)

Nettan - Det blir vaksine på meg også - i dag!

MissBliss - They totally have a dreamy feel to them, don't they?

CdK - Hehe, ja med høy takhøyde kan jo det se fantastisk ut! :D

Living It At Home - wow, I love your blog!! Definitely tons of inspiration!
