TOM: Clever painting of a ceiling can instantly expand a space. Brush on a bright white, and try extending the color about 12 inches down each wall for the feeling of height.
LESLIE: Continue the illusion by painting the walls with a light color. Soft, icy blues and soothing pale greens are great options for transforming a tight space.
TOM: Add interest in depth by painting wall trim and moldings a lighter color than the walls. Then the walls will appear farther away.
