Whether vertical or horizontal, wide or narrow, painted, decaled or wallpapered, I love stripes on walls.
I have been contemplating stripes in several different areas of my apartment but especially in the hallway. We have a long narrow hallway so I can’t fit any furniture and because the doors to the laundry room and hall closet are on half of the hallway I don’t really want to hang any nice artwork, for fear of breakage while I’m folding clothes or rearranging the coat closet. I am particularly drawn to bold, horizontal stripes but there is also something soothing about a light, barely there, wall stripe. Ah, decisions decisions. While I’m daydreaming about color, width and orientation, check out these great stripe-y wall examples and maybe you’ll develop some stripe envy of your own.
I really admire not only the way this hallway looks but how difficult it must have been to tape the whole design out. Check out all her work, including pictures of the taped walls, at Three Men and a Lady.
