Trend Alert: Stripes on Ceilings

August 23, 2011 4 Comments by Regina

I’ve been seeing a slew of stripes on ceilings lately. You?  First, I encountered one on Tobi Fairley’s blog when she did wide orange and white stripes for the Hampton Designer Showhouse.

Then I saw the beauty at the Avalon Hotel created by Kelly Wearstler.  She added a little interest with varying stripes.  Love…

Then this fresh version I spied in Florida Design magazine by designer Mac McGuinness.  I love how it really just opens up the space and how the wall color (or glaze?) does not match the yellow directly but compliments it.  It’s also a warm choice and flows with the flooring.  Beautiful.

Finally, a Chevron variation as seen in the Dreamsicle Day blog.

I know there’s quite a bit of work involved in creating stripes on a ceiling but I do love the end result.  What are your thoughts?

    Love it — reminds me of a favorite project from years gone by. Striped walls and harlequin diamonds on the ceiling in the small entry way. It looked like a little hat box. When the client sold the house, they told me the buyer decided they wanted it as soon as they saw the walls and ceiling!
