Striped Nursery

I recently completed a nursery project for a very talented local interior designer, and I thought I'd share it with you today. This is one of those projects where I came in at the beginning of the room transformation, and I can't wait to see photos of how it turns out in the end, because I know it'll be amazing. 

I did big bold stripes on the walls in a neutral gray-taupe color. My stripes were 17", and I made them perfectly crisp by painting the edges of the tape with the basecoat color, and then doing the stripe color on top of that. Works every time!

Here is a vine video I made when I did it (you can follow me on there if youd like - my name is Kristen Fountain Davis)

Here is how it turned out:

Can't you see the potential of how awesome it's going to be in there? I really REALLY loved her brass door knobs on those black doors. Genius.

You can't see the stripes, but they continue into that little alcove. Details like this make stripes cool, I think.

Here are some other details from the room:

  1. LOVE how your stripes turned out! A client of mine wants to do stripes in her nursery, too, and this might have just convinced me!!! :)

    1. thank you so much! i love the thick stripes - such a fun way to add a little color and pattern to a space without getting too crazy.

  2. Love the stripes! I'm having a baby in December and have wood floors/white trim and will be doing a light gray on the wall. I love those black doors! What type of sheen do the doors have or would you recommend?

    1. I think they're semi gloss or satin! I like Satin, personally.

  3. truly professional.......
