How big is this room? - Love the built ins and we would like to do something similar, but the room we have is 12x14 so to do 18 inches, we would make the room be 12x12.5... This is for kids playroom so trying to decide if worth eating into space! Thx!

Should I go lighter or darker on the trim of my stucco? - I am painting my stucco darker. A medium grey brown. I have keystones on corners and trim around the house. The front is brick and stucco. Right now it is lighter.

The cabinets on either side of the window are approximately 40" wide and 18" deep. The window seat in the center is about 40" wide as well. Hope that helps!

Just curious, do you know how high the ceiling is in this room? - Also, does the ceiling slope down toward the window/bookcase or does it just appear that way because of the stripes? Thank you.

The ceiling is a typical 8ft ceiling and it is flat, no slope.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Samantha Schoech added this to Create a Stir With Paint
Painting the insides of shelves is a great way to add color and depth to a room. These people also went for off-kilter stripes on the ceiling. And why not?
Danyelle Mathews added this to Cheery Paint Treatments Make for Happy Kids
Adding paint inside the bookshelves makes the decorative items pop, but the true star of the show is the striped ceiling.
10. Modern and colorful California nursery. A few clever swipes of paint may be all you need to update your child's room. A striped ceiling, bright yellow bookshelves and bold textiles combine beautifully in this modern nursery.
2. Take a seat. Window benches aren't just for adults. These cozy seats are a wonderful opportunity for a child to grab a little solitude in a bustling home.
