Painting stripes on your wall is a great decorative painting technique. This eye catching, timeless look can be used in a variety of ways;
By using two different tones or varying sheens of the same colour you achieve an elegant effect that is not over the top
Go for a bold contrast for an eye popping feature wall. But beware of conflicting colours or too many stripes or you will overpower the room which can make it look too busy.
Add the illusion of extra height in a room by painting vertical stripes.
And create more width to a room by painting horizontal stripes.
Get creative and put stripes in any direction or even a very modern chevron.
