Stripes aren't just for Cat in the Hat

To add some real zest, take a tip from your childhood favorite, Cat in the Hat! You remember his tall white and red striped hat, right? Maybe its time to think about adding a stripe to your walls! Now, don’t let Dr. Seuss’ character get you worried, it doesn’t have to be as dramatic as red and white stripes, you could go with something as subtle as two different paint finishes in the same color painted on as stripes. For example, in the dining room use your favorite taupe to paint the whole walls in an eggshell finish, then go back an add semigloss stripes in the same color. You will create a subtle, classy effect while still adding some ‘play’ to your paint.
You can keep it simple with just one, wide stripe going around the whole room in a color that is just slightly darker than the wall color, like we did in this bedroom.
