The walls started out a gold color that carried into the main living area. I used a laser level and chalk to draw out the pattern I desired. then I taped off the lines.
1.5 days later, I had a striped foyer. The use of gold stripes allows the space to flow into the living area. The uneven spacing of the lines keeps it fun and lighthearted. The horizontal direction makes the small space feel longer and the stripes draw you in. The lighter shade keep the walls from getting too dark.
If you like the color scheme, the shades I chose were Sherwin Williams Golden Fleece, Navajo White & Granite Peak.
