seeing stripes

Paint is one of the easiest ways to update your home. We recently painted our living room and it changed the feel of the room completely. I am currently trying to decide how to paint the boys’ room and playroom and I have fallen in love with striped walls. Striped walls add a ton of interest to the room and are much more budget friendly than wallpaper.

I really love these navy and white walls. Navy can make a room look too dark and heavy if there is not enough light or white in the room, but these navy and white stripes really make the room feel fresh and bright. Navy looks great with almost any color so it is the perfect shade to use as a base for your room.

I am a huge fan of gray and white stripes or black and white stripes because the decorating possibilities are endless. You can keep your palette neutral and soft or you can add bold pops of color. Stripes can make a room playful or glamorous depending on how you style the room.

There will definitely be stripes in at least one room in my house, now I just have to find the time to make it happen!

Happy Painting!
