We are often left searching for that perfect balance between excitement and serenity, order and contrast when planning for our dream bedroom. Providing the perfect solution to this conundrum and adding pattern to the bedroom without taking over completely are striped accent walls.
Stripes bring a simple yet engaging pattern to the bedroom that is far less overwhelming than many other designs, and elegant accent walls with beautiful stripes are easy to pull off. These exquisite inspirations on display today will surely tempt you to proudly sport your true stripes as well!
Before deciding what should be your accent wall, look at the architectural elements of your home. If you’ve got an attic, you already have an accent wall. All you need to do is dress it up. Plank wood texture makes perfect stripes.
The simple style of minimalism doesn’t mean there can’t be any personality or spark. This room would be a snooze without the impact of the brown striped walls and the wonderful striped bed, but with them, it’s a stunner.
If you want to add a statement, yet not an exclamation, try one oversize horizontal stripe wrapping around the center of your walls, as in this room.
BLACK AND WHITE STRIPES
Black and white is a classic combo, and for good reason. It’s sophisticated, elegant, and perfect as a backdrop to a simple yet gorgeous bedroom.
Looking for a touch of glamour in your bedroom? Then consider adding softly metallic stripes, as in the bedroom shown here. Pair it with the golden hanging lights at both sides of the bed and it’s glowing. Classic!
While stripes are often used to add impact, sometimes whisper-soft stripes provide a dreamy backdrop to an already soft color and pattern used throughout the rest of the space. Subtle.
MAKE THE ROOM APPEAR LARGER
Just because you have a tiny bedroom doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun with your decor. Bold horizontal stripes as in this room, actually makes the space look a little bit larger.
FRAME FOR ARTWORK
For the boldest style, add a large “frame” in the center of wide horizontal stripes, and use the spot to show off a prized piece of artwork.
It’s easy to paint horizontal stripes, and as a plus, they make a small room look larger. While the soft stripes here are wallpaper, you could achieve the same effect with crackle glaze and paint.
Strongly contrasting stripes are certainly not your only option. This wallpapered accent wall shows off the soft, almost textured look of tone-on-tone stripes.
Striped bedrooms look good right? The good thing about this is you can be creative on how thin or how thick your stripes are. You can also play with different colors that you will use for your striped wall. Also, you can use either paint or wallpaper.
