Be one with nature with Shadow Leaves, Shadow Silk and Mineral.
Step in to nature with Genon’s Shadow Leaves. This large-scale, meandering, almost translucent, leaf print rests atop its coordinate, Shadow Silk. Make a memorable organic statement in public areas, feature walls, and more. Summer Rain, Snow Beauty and Black Pearl are some of the 10 colors shared with the contrasting silk.
Accenting horizontal colors craft a decorative, yet refined, woven look in Genon’s Shadow Silk. These organic banded hues, across 25 colorways, create a dramatic silk and coordinate with Shadow Leaves.
Inspired by nature’s rock formations, Genon’s Mineral showcases the mined qualities of textured stone, with 18 hues that range from plaster-like to jewel tone combinations.
Did you grow up believing that ceilings had to be white — or, at the very least, a paler version of the wall color.
Dark ceilings, even black ones…can hide a multitude of sins, call attention to something you want to emphasize or instill a touch of drama.
Here are some reasons to consider painting your ceiling black.
To add drama. Take away the furnishings and finishes in this room, and you’ve got a pretty humble plasterboard box. The black ceiling adds architectural interest where none existed and makes the space feel far more interesting.
To draw attention to a view. Sure, this view would be beautiful even if the ceiling were white. But notice how the black surface draws your eyes toward the vista, kind of like a red carpet unfurling in front of you?
To conceal a mess. It can be tough to hide all the ductwork in a basement ceiling. Covering it with drywall can rob you of precious headroom (not to mention money). An inexpensive solution is to paint the whole thing black. It won’t eliminate the problem entirely, but it’ll make the mechanics far less prominent without lowering the ceiling’s height.
To make a ceiling look taller. Sounds like a contradiction, right? But when you can’t see the boundaries of a room, it can appear bigger. This is especially true if you paint the tops of the walls black as well.
Because the walls are black. If you’re going to take the plunge and paint your walls black, do you really want to wimp out on the ceiling? The bedroom here is dramatic and supremely sexy, but it wouldn’t have worked half as well without the black ceiling.
The same holds true for this bath. Since bathrooms are self-contained spaces, and people don’t usually spend a great deal of time in them, they’re an excellent place to try something a little bit daring.
Because the rest of the room is black and white. Chaplin, houndstooth, The New Yorker — some things just look better in black and white. In this case the black ceiling is a nice echo of the black floor, and the stringent motif makes the few touches of color pop.
