Subtle stripes in a child’s room are a creative way to combine various gender-neutral shades without overwhelming a little space. In this room we brought together warm off whites with rich creams and greens for a sweet and soft effect.

Using our favorite DIY tools- level, pencil, and painter’s tape- draw horizontal lines in the following pattern starting from the floor going up to the ceiling: 18″, 6″, 6″, 3″, 3″. Repeat.

Time to pick up the paint brush! The color order of the stripes from top to bottom is: AIR .01, AIR .02, STONE .01, GLASS .03, GLASS .02. We started by painting with AIR .02 and GLASS .03.
