One of the big dĂ©cor trends we are seeing right now are wall stripes.Â Not only do they make a statement in any room, but they also have the ability to make rooms seem larger.Â We have picked out a handful of our favorite designs to share with you below:
- Mimic Your Upholstery
We love the idea of taking one striped piece of fabric and mimicking it on your wall.Â The wall shown here takes itsâ€™ cues from the chair, but you could use an accent pillow or even your window drapes as inspiration.Â Since Mythic paint will color match for you, you can get the exact color from your fabric for your wall paint.
- Colorless is More
When you think black and white stripes, you may think prison jumpsuits.Â But seeing them in a room, you can see how chic they are.Â For anyone trying to make a huge impact, we suggest using interior paint in black and white to make stripes in your entryway.Â This look lends itself to modern and eclectic furniture.
- Pick Just a Part of the Wall
You donâ€™t have to paint your entire room to make an impact with stripes.Â Choose one section of your room that you want to highlight and paint vertical stripes there.Â This works well when you really look at the composition of the space.Â In the picture below, the stripes juxtapose the shorter chair giving the area interesting contrast in scale.
- Keep it Simple and Elegant
Stripes donâ€™t have to be bold like the ideas above.Â In fact, they can be very restful.Â We like the idea of keeping them monochromatic.Â This gives some visual interest, but it is not overbearing.Â You could even vary the finish on interior paint of the same color from matte to high gloss.Â The high gloss will shine, creating a very simple stripe effect.
We hope you found some ideas here to use in your own home.Â If you do try out a stripe project, we would love to see pictures on our Facebook Page!
