Paint Your Walls In Two Tones

Combine stripes with another styles, from a modern and contemporary feel to classic and rustic, the effect on each is different but just as interesting.

You don’t have to keep the room neutral to put some texture on the walls, you can fill your space with elements that combine and contrast with the stripes and design.

Tip. Add two or more decorative accessories in the space that match the colors you used on the stripes. The goal is to coordinate the room without overloading it.

The feel of your room depends on the colors you choose and how you organize your stripes. Here are some examples:

TWO TONE VERTICAL STRIPES

Vertical lines lengthen walls. Vertical lines can make social areas in a house feel taller and more spacious.

Combining two strong colors like green and turquoise or salmon and brown, will create an energetic environment that might work well in children’s bedrooms.

TWO TONE HORIZONTAL STRIPES

Horizontal lines will make the walls looks thicker and tend to create a focal point in the room, especially if you use them in hallways.

An original effect you can achieve with horizontal lines using gradients, from a stronger tone to a lighter, top to bottom or vice versa. The same color in different shades like the picture below, the result is quite fantastic.

NEUTRAL HORIZONTAL STRIPES

Sandy tones, beige, white and wispy gray combine well with each other to add a subtle texture in a room and create a warm and calming feel.

CHEVRON STYLE 

Zigzag lines create movement. You can paint them in different thicknesses, the same size, or as a border painting only half of the wall.

HALF WALL

Sometimes a single line is enough to obtain reliable results.  A color below and one above makes an interesting balance, dividing the wall and highlighting the chandalier.

    I am having l nightmares over the Rhino Shield covering on my house, installed just over three years ago. Large bubbles are in the material that I can slit and hand peel the material, right down to the bare red cedar clapboards, which were also primed with an oil primer and finished with latex paint before the Rhino-Shield was applied. The material has a lifetime guarantee, so when I called several persons, including the owner Rhino Shield they all came over quickly.

    Rhino Shield said that the material was probably put on when the cedar was damp, and thus would strip everything and apply a new primer and finish coat, let dry, then apply new Rhino Shield, adding that there will be no more work till flashing is….
