An interior designer says we should not be afraid to experiment with our ceilings, which are often overlooked.
Garry Cohn of Cohn Designs told The Home Show there's more colours than just white out there.
"It becomes an afterthought - you deal with eye level - so when you're working in a room, everything is eye-level.
"And what do you do with gravity? You drop something, then it's the floor.
"And you rarely are looking up in a room, unless it's a church or a monumental building, so the ceiling is usually forgotten.
"The surface area's enormous: you could see from one end of the room to the other part of the house."
'It's the whole ensemble'
Garry says we should look at ceilings as part of the room, and not separately.
"When you pick an outfit in the morning, you're not just picking a dress - you're thinking of your shoes, [and] if it's a winter your coat, your hat: it's the whole ensemble.
"Right now all we're thinking about is the dress, and so when you're going to paint a ceiling you have to put the different pieces into place to say 'This will compliment the walls, this will compliment that'.
"Whether you want a dark ceiling, a light ceiling or a shade - or have some of the ceiling come down on to the wall, the colour, it's your choice.
"Everything is possible if you put it together in the scheme of the concept that you're trying to go for".
On bringing down ceiling colour on to the walls, he says this can let the room envelop you.
"If I take the ceiling colour and I come down about 300 [millimetres] on to the wall, what that does is it brings your eye level of your ceiling lower.
"So you feel like your ceiling is lower - that's not a bad thing all the time.
"But sometimes you need a room to be cosy and to hug you.
"I made rooms cosy, visually bringing the ceiling down - you walk into the room and your shoulders drop and you're like 'Awwwww'"
On options for the ceiling, Garry suggests he's not afraid to use darker colours.
"My clients are but I'm not", he laughs.
"It's psychology, I have to convince people that they'll be OK.
"My biggest answer to all that is: it's paint - if you don't like it, you can paint it another colour".
Asked what the maddest approach he took to a project was, he says: "It's the Style Club, which is this hair salon, I used every crayon in the crayon box, I used every powder.
"But if you look you don't feel like it's a dog's dinner because it's about scale, proportion and it's about mix and matching.
"When you put that together, you're just like 'Oh my gosh, I don't know how it works but it works'".
