Simple Brown Striped Wall

Brown Stripe Wall Paint Ideas

Our first design is a simple wall using two different brown colors, dark and light. The idea for this one is a bit different from other ideas because we only use the strip right in the middle of the wall, not in the entire wall.

The idea is to create a separator to divide the wall into two different sections, the upper and bottom ones. We also use a lot wider line in the middle so it can be a frame to put any artwork.

Based on our experience, you can use these design ideas behind the sofa for the best result.

If you noticed, before we created the horizontal line, we created some dividers below and divided the wall into 2 different parts, the upper and bottom. In the bottom area, we don’t create any stripes and leave it with just white paint.

Yellow Wall with Artistic White Lines

Yellow wall with white accents

Painting a wall with yellow may be interesting, but sometimes, the striking looks of the yellow paint make it look too much.

Thus, one of the best ways to neutralize and tone it down is by combining some neutral elements with the yellow. And that’s the approach that we try here, where we add some simple white lines to the striking yellow, making it look a bit softer and calmer.

To further elevate the wall, instead of using typical lines, we randomize it a bit to create some creative and artistic looks.
