Kathleen Burke Design

This delightful young girl's bedroom is faux painted with tone on tone soft yellow stripes to mimic a circus tent. Her green gingham check bedding and pink polka dot cushions are a nice compliment.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Jen Jafarzadeh L'Italien added this to Decorate with Yellow Stripes
If you paint stripes of darker yellow on lighter yellow, you create a monochrome effect. The stripes add dimension to this bedroom, but the layers of yellow keep the stripes from feeling as vibrant and bold as yellow-on-white stripes. This is a more mellow yellow.
Paint with the future in mind. "For this little girl's room, I wanted to select a base decor and furnishings with longevity in mind," says Kathleen Burke of Kathleen Burke Design. "Kate couldn’t be more in love with her stuffed animals, so the idea of a circus tent to showcase her collection was appealing."She adds that "the soft, tone-on-tone striped walls were also a practical decision, since little girls grow up quickly. The soft yellow doesn't feel too young and can easily transition through the years. The pattern is neutral and sophisticated enough to suit a growing child's taste."In terms of the budget, Burke says "it made sense to spend money here on the faux-stripe paint rather than linens, since bedding wears out and is easily changed. A future modification in the linens would transform the look of the room overnight."
