More kids play with stripes!

Ok…I promise I’m almost done with stripes.  I just love their versatility and playfulness and with so much beautiful inspiration to comb over, I had to keep sharing.

Last week I focused on horizontal stripes in kids spaces…this week, it’s all about the vertical stripe. Once relegated to hallways and powder rooms, the vertical stripe is becoming just as de rigueur as the currently-ubiquitous bold, horizontal stripe.

This shared space is so calming – the mild vertical stripes on the wall really help to made the space seem larger.

The stripe applied below the chair rail in this shared nursery ups the sweetness factor tremendously.

The variation in stripe widths and tones in this nursery corner are a welcome surprise.

I’m so in love with the bold, in-your-face pinstripes in this bedroom that is perfect for a teenage girl to call her own.

In yet another shared space, wide candy red stripes on the wall paired with coordinating bedding create a playful, modern space for siblings.

Of course, as always, one need not rely on wall paper treatments and painting tricks to achieve a room-heightening stripe trick.  A paneled wall in bright white makes this shared space even cozier.

Even Land of Nod is jumping on the vertical stripe bandwagon.  Just check out their latest crib bedding offering.  The gray. The mustard. The cute little birds.  The contrasting stripes and polka-dots.  I die.

In any space, stripes bring an element of play so they apply so well to children’s spaces.  Have you used stripes in your children’s decor?
