Sensational Stripes

Remember this post?

A local reader saw it and enlisted my help in using this idea in her home. Her front hall had a large wall that made the perfect canvas. One and a half stories tall, the wall is visible from her newly remodeled and midcentury inspired open concept kitchen/living/dining room. And it’s accented by this gorgeous light fixture.

We carefully chose the colors, using only half as many as the wall at SMOCA, which is much larger. We went endlessly back and forth between the photos I had taken and the Benjamin Moore color samples to get the colors just right. Working out the size of each stripe was tricky, as the original’s stripes get progressively larger as you get closer to the floor. Getting the correct proportions while making it fix exactly in the space allotted was time consuming but well worth it! Add one very talented (and patient!) painter to the mix and you get this amazing final product:

It is stunning – day or night!

  1. This is gorgeous! I have been trying to find the perfect mural to paint on my mid century home’s foyer as well. This would be perfect. Would you be willing to share the paint colors that you used? Thank you!

    • This was done for a client so I can’t share, but I recommend getting a fan deck from your favorite paint brand and choosing about 8-10 colors.
