Lauren pinned this print and I immediately imagined using it as inspiration in my Lucky House. Something about it stuck with me and I mulled over various color choices for days. I know, my life is so exciting. I spend days thinking about what color I'm going to paint my walls.

For the Lucky House, I want an impact in the entry. It's a split entry (which I loathe) so I need to make the most of it. The more I thought about this print, the more I felt convinced I should replicate it just inside my front door.

The house is mostly being painted a steel grey color and Aspen chose a plum purple for an accent in her room so I want to re-use those two colors together somewhere. So instead of using yellow and black for the stripes and arrows, I'm thinking grey and plum.

There will be one other set of stripes in the house, with THIS as inspiration. I feel good about repeating some paint elements throughout the house without going overboard. And since we still don't have a headboard, I like using something on the master bedroom wall to serve as a focal point instead. Now here's to hoping I can get the majority of the bedroom painting done before we move in!


  1. I love that print! When I saw it I immediately thought it would look awesome on the front of stairs.
    I don't know what you guys are planning for yours but there are so many interesting painting treatments I'm seeing for stairs everywhere right now. Might be fun to try. Just an idea... :)

  2. My first thought was to paint the stairs but I don't know if that'll happen. Kev said paint with grit in it (for non-slip surface) is expensive. I'm like, can't we just put sand in regular paint?

  3. ohhh i love love love this. good choice.


  4. I love this pattern too, it's calming or something. I'm a little jealous of all this creativity you get to do with your house. We are stuck with white walls. So I'm living vicariously through you.


Thanks for stopping by!
