Colorful Striped Wall Designs
Four bold ideas to inspire both your pattern and your palette for your next striped wall project
The width of the stripes and the colors you choose for your accent wall will have a dramatic effect on the feel of the pattern. Wide, uniform-width stripes in tonal colors create a formal atmosphere, while thin stripes in varied widths tend to look more playful. Here are a few ideas to inspire both your pattern and your palette.
Paint: Benjamin Moore's Natura semigloss in Eccentric Lime, Lucky Charm Green, Splash, Yosemite Blue, Super White
Stripes painted in uniform widths and in tonal colors, such as two shades of blue or a bright yellow and yellowish beige, create a formal look appropriate for a sitting area or period room.
Wide bands in a handful of sizes create a trendy tone, especially when painted in bright colors set against earth tones. Such patterns work best in a kid's room or a modern living space.
Thin stripes painted in a variety of sizes and colors inject a fun feel. Create a layered look by painting a thin stripe of one color one stripe after a wide stripe
of the same color.
To introduce a striped pattern without jolting your eye, choose muted colors from the same palette and leave large strips of the background color exposed in varied widths between each painted stripe.
