Because wallpaper can be a pain in the neck to put up and take down, wall paint has become the preferred decorating solution to add liveliness and color to a room. It has encouraged creativity in selecting shades, styles, and palettes to get a one-of-a-kind look. Here is a perfect example of how all of these elements can help you create a fun girl’s room with painted horizontal stripes.
Designed by Diane Hughes, Barbara Vaughn and painted by Eric Karl Anderson, this room was decorated for the York Show House in Maine and published by Better Homes and Gardens. The room was designed with gorgeous shades of pink painted in thick horizontal stripes throughout these little girls’ bedroom.
What makes this room work so well is the modern wide stripes in classic colors of pink wall paint juxtaposed against romantic styled white furniture and decor. The rounded corners on the bed and dresser soften the angularity of the stripes. In particular, the white round wall mirror looks stunning on the wall. And, the white wicker furniture adds to the coziness of the room. How fun!
