I'm painting some horizontal stripes in our hallway. Right now our hallway looks like this:
(ignore the random, too small, weirdly placed arrangement on the wall)
Besides the fact that it's white, bland, and boring, all the doors are also different shades of white. I hate it. I want to make this space fun and noticeable, not just a place that gets you from point A to point B.
I love a bold horizontal stripe, and at first I thought I wanted to paint something more subtle (and admittedly more predictable) like this:
But then I saw THIS.
Oh yes, gold metallic stripes are in our future.
1. I could paint them a crisp white like the rest of the doorways in our hall will eventually be.
2. I could continue the gold stipe right over the cabinet doors so they will almost disappear. Much like the door in this bathroom.
3. Or, I could paint them Olive Green like the color of this dress. This one will make the cabinet doors stand out most and is a little unexpected.
