Open the space in your home: bring in the sky!

Who does not like looking up at the sky to observe clouds, the intensity of its blue, and its passing birds?  One relaxes thinking of how nice it would be to glide in the atmosphere and follow their track.  This is why, as a change to a traditional white ceiling, it is a wonderful option to introduce a sky.  It brings the outdoors, fantasy, and lightheartedness inside your home, all while adding height and depth to your room.  It can be limited to a space circumscribed around a chandelier

A tropical sky with palm or banana tree leaves adds a lot of fun, whereas a pure azure with swallows and shredded clouds accommodates a traditional or contemporary look.

Vertical walls provide an excellent canvas for a serene sky as well, accompanied by flying creatures or engines of your imagination: airplanes, balloons, fish, etc.  In a closed space such as an entrance, a painted sky will push back the walls; on slanted ceilings, accompanied by a trellis, it will open the roof to nature.
