Stripes: Yay or Nay?

Hey friends!

I usually go straight to Will if I can't decide on something, but we have agreed that this decision is a little bit more tricky. It's hard to admit that I need help, maybe it's my decorator's ego!
My TV wall has become quite a conundrum....

A wall with similar sized white framed art?


or stripes?!


Here's the thing holding me back, I don't know if the stripes would be too much with the checkered floor...
hmmm...
what do you think?

I really think going bold with the stripes would be fun. What about a fantastic wallpaper, to balance the beautiful entryway!

Definitely stripes. Maybe a tone on tone would lessen your fears about it being too much with your floor. Just a thought. You've got great taste so I'm sure it'll turn out great.

100% yes! I would go tone on tone though... even subtle is dramatic in its own way

Ooh, the stripes make such a strong style statement, but not too much! Great idea.

Stripes all the way! If you don't like it you can always paint over the stripes but I say go for it. The other week I finally stenciled my master bedroom wall and after I did it I was so happy. Yet I had it for a few weeks undecided. Just do it!

Nope not too much....Go with Stripes.

I'll probably be the only one to disagree, but I don't know that I would do the stripes. What about frames that would surround the TV so not only the four you show on top but also a few to the left and right, almost to frame out the TV?

I like the stripes! looks good with the checkered floor

Janis @ Home Style said...

I also thinking the stripes would look great, tone on tone or bolder........both would work. But if you're still unsure what about a collage of frames/art around your t.v to "blend" it in.

Have fun.

I agree with the stripes vote. But, I have to say, I'm kind-of glad that even you were stumped by this one. When you mentioned last week that this was "up next" I was curious how you are going to do it because I think TV walls are SO tricky. Good ideas my friend, can't wait to see the finished product!
