Nursery Design Element: Stripes

in Nursery Design

Nursery by Jenika Kurtz

Thinking of using stripes as a design theme in your baby’s nursery?  Here’s a few great examples of where you’ll find stripes on the floor, ceiling, and walls of kid’s rooms.

No painting required in Alex and Jackie’s nursery designed by Jenika Kurtz (above).  Rug by Crate and Barrel.

Creative director of OnceWed.com, Joy Thigpen, painstakingly painted stripes that faded into each other in her daughter’s room.  See more images from her home at Design*Sponge.

Jenna Lyons, executive director at J. Crew, put stripes on the ceiling in her Brooklyn brownstone – a bold move for the brave ones out there.

These beautiful subtly colored stripes are found in Anyon Design founder, Lindsay Brier’s own home.  Hear about the design process and learn the Benjamin Paint colors that were used in ColorChats interview with Lindsay.

For DIY’ers, here’s some tips on painting the perfect stripes.

Another example of stripes on the floor – this time it’s DwellStudio’s Draper Stripe in DoubleFab’s nursery.

Finally, not all stripes have to be wide – as you see in Ella’s room.
