Read between the lines; Striped Entry Hall: Guest

17 May 2010

Nice entry update.  I like the new look.  Jenn at Jenn's Corner of Heaven took a bold step with big stripes.

I did it. I striped my hallway. And with zero help.Thanks to Kathleen for the awesome tips. Check out her hallway.  The curved wall in the entry really makes the space unique. But it was so plain.

I'm really digging the look. However, it's like buying a new dress with no purse, shoes or jewelry to match. I need to accessorize!Entire hallway cost me about $25 bucks (I only used half a can of each paint) and approximately 9 hours of my life.


What do you think?

Definitely tricky with the accessorizing... But not impossible! I love it! It really compliments the curves in the walls too.

This is gorgeous! I love the stripes with the curvy wall. Great job!

That is VERY awesome. I have been wanting to do that in our downstairs bathroom, but I'm TOO scared. Can't make a straight line to save my life!!

very bold..i like it although i don't know if i am that bold to do it in my house..but those people that have the guts to try it..it looks great!!

you're very creative... i think small frames that could fit inside the lines would be great too. just put the small frames inside the lines alternately. just an idea, have a nice day!

I adore this. And this is so weird, but I used almost the same colours in my striped room. Bravo for making your home exactly how you like it.

Absolutely gorgeous! Love the way the wall becomes fluid with that curve. Just beautiful!

I think it made it a grand entrance. I'm guessing you used that frog tape...we put some stripes in my son's room and I would promote that product for free!

I wonder if this would work in my hallway? It sure does make a statement. It especially looks good with the curve.

Absolutely love it! It makes it exciting and fun, but still grown up because of the color palette.
