LaGrange warns against using paper with a definite directional cue, such as those with a clear top and bottom, since it wont be read “correctly” from a visual standpoint. Barnett, who trains stagers, suggests avoiding wallpaper on the ceiling when selling. “Its so taste-specific and many are still scared of paper,” she says. One way to hedge bets is to suggest one of the newer easy-to-remove papers from sources like Chasing Paper.

The look picked up steam after celebrity TV couple Chip and Joanna Gaines of HGTVs “Fixer Upper” show began using them in countless projects, including on ceilings. For a more modern vibe, Zuber of Morgante Wilson Architects recommends trim with an angled or slanted profile rather than straight rectangular boards. He advises keeping millwork in the right proportion to the ceilings height. “Four-inch crown is good for an 8- or 9-foot ceiling,” he says.
