My favourite feature wall in our home is in our girls bedroom. Whenever people see the striped wall they always think it's wallpaper...but it's not!! My beautiful sister-in-law, Anna, and I painted it together. Now I must give credit where credit is due...Anna is a professional artist and without her this wall would have been a huge FAIL! :) She is an incredibly talented artist and singer, you must go and check out her blog to see her paintings and listen to her music....her work is incredibly inspiring!
The Colours: Anna and I brought all of our cans of leftover house paints together and played around until we found a combo we loved. At first we were going to stay with the neutrals but then last minute we decided to throw in just a few stripes of bright purple to really give it a POP!
Our final colours were:
Benjamin Moore - Tranquility (the entire room was painted this colour first)
The hardest part was keeping the lines straight...definitely a 2 person job!
The secret weapon of perfect stripes?....Frog Tape! Not just ordinary painters tape (which sometimes bleed)..nope don't do it! Frog Tape is a little more expensive, but is is SO worth it. (no...I'm not getting paid to say this!:). Seriously, I will never go back to the basic tape again.
And the view from the top of the stairs....sigh..so pretty.
Now if I could only get the girls to keep their room clean!
(P.S. The chandelier was a $10 garage sale find! LOVE finding sweet deals!)
