How about a burst of color on this Wednesday morning? Hump day will never be the same if you woke up to cheery painted stripes in your home!  This particular kaleidoscopic room in the Kate Spade store, is seriously fun with the traditional furniture and white walls. Similarly below DIYer Kristin Kauffman showed off her painted dining room floors to Better Homes and Gardens in February’s issue of the magazine and Nate Berkus also featured her ‘how-to’.

I am a big fan of multi-colored stripes set back to white, like in the Kate Spade photo.   A bright background makes the whole trend a bit more fresh and inspired than plain traditional stripes. The warm tones chosen as a majority of the color make this installation just a touch vintage too.

 

Now you don’t have to go crazy with the paint, you can get colorful spring inspired stripes in your home in much less permanent way.  These pretty vases by dahlhaus are my personal favorite, a DIY doormat by Martha might be hitting my back porch soon, and some striped home accessories are just in the perfect iteration of the trend for your home!

How HAPPY did this make your Wednesday?!

Do you think this is a color trend you’ll be trying?  Is there a pretty striped pillow or rug in your future??
