Decorating with stripes gives you the opportunity to experience tremendous versatility in your room. They can make your room look bigger or wider more serene or bolder. But too much of a good thing can sometimes be bad. Watch out for wide stripes with dark or bright colors. They can be very overpowering to work with. Try using thee stripes in small quantities, perhaps in wall covering under a chair rail.
Also keep in mind that the larger the room, the wider the stripe may be. A narrow vertical stripe works well in smaller rooms, particularly those with low ceilings, as they will make the room appear larger.
Do you have a two story wall in your home? Adding a vertical striped wall covering, or paint treatment to this very large wall, will draw unnecessary attention. The wall is already very long, and a striped wall covering will make it seem even longer. Rather, you might opt for a bold, dramatic color, or a textured paint finish on this wall to highlight this w3onderful architect6ural feature in a more understated manner
