Vertical Stripes and a Winner

Monday, January 13, 2014

I took on a teeny tiny little project over the weekend in our entry (you can see it on instagram here).  Last week I mentioned that we painted our living room and that I still had a few more things to do before posting about it.  There is one wall in our entry (which is connected to our living room) where I wanted to do something special.  For some reason, vertical stripes seem so fresh to me now.  They have a timelessness about them, no?  Anyway, the stripes are up & I'm so happy with how they turned out!  Here are a few great examples that sealed to deal for me.

  4. After painting this weekend, nothing involving paint is a tiny project. Drop cloths, tape, coats, ladders, clean up - and you added measuring and straight lines! So impressive. I love the inspiration and the Instagram pic! Definitely has a timeless appeal.

  6. What fun for your entry! Like Kim I had a cream & taupe striped wallpaper in one of our houses years ago…..loved the look then, and still love it now! Definitely a classic.

  7. I would love to incorporate stripes into either my entry way or my office. Both areas are small and I think they would really benefit from having such a large impact. Thanks for the inspiration.

  8. We're on the same wave length - I'm doing vertical stripes in my entry closet. :) They're my favorite, can't wait to see your entry, I think it's about the size of mine!

  9. Timeless? Yes, indeed. If the teaser pic on Instagram is any indication, this will be a lovely early 2014 redo!
