The Solo Stripe

Now that we have seen your traditional stripe designs, it is time to look at some more unusual ideas. The single stripe is also making a strong movement into the children's design world. Mostly seen in modern design it creates a unique visual interest in a room, and almost serves as artwork on its own.

A similar single stripe, this time closer to the ground. The image below has it a little higher. I'm estimating that these stripes are about 18" in height.

The image below is a traditional take and actually reminds me of a rugby shirt. I like how the name is placed in the middle stripe.

The large vertical kelly green stripes in the photo above serve as an extension of the rustic headboards. An interesting combination to have the barn-like furniture & accessories paired with such dramatic stripes. You can't help but focus on the stripes (similar to the rooms below).

Now this room is my favorite of the bunch. I like the ribbon-line design of the painted stripes and how it extends to the ceiling. And of course it is of turquoise my favorite color (yellow is now a close second).

These next two photos have the same idea, are different rooms but seem to be by the same designer. Look how they both even have the carpet paralleling the wall and ceiling stripe. A lot of pink, but I'm sure the girls who live in them love it!

What do you think of these new stripe designs?


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog today. This is great "single stripe" inspiration as well!

  2. Love to see my baby boys room here via Pinterest. Seriously makes me happy! Thank you for using it as inspiration for others. Lucas' mommy :)

    1. Hi! I was wondering if you could tell me what color blue you used in Lucas' room? We love this exact look for wall paint but can't find a good blue that we like :-)
