{Stripes... Yes, Please!}

My addiction for Pinterest hasn't gotten any better.  I feel like I should be in a circle saying, "Hi, My name is Jessica & I'm addicted to Pinterest." 

I found an amazing blog via Pinterest the other day & literally stayed up until 3 a.m. reading every single word that Laurel-Dawn wrote.  Her blog is called Abode Love.  It's amazing.  I mean like jaw dropping drooling all over the keyboard amazing.  

It was here that I fell in love with the striped wall.  She did stripes in her hallway.  It's gorgeous & I want it.  Now.  I'll quit rambling about it & show you what I'm talking about. 

Gorgeous.  Right?

So, this our inspiration.  Now on to the  dilema.  Last year we painted our hallway, living room & kitchen RL's Oatmeal.  We had it color matched in Behr paint.  It's my favorite paint.  Now I have to find a coordinating color.  So I'm on a mission to find a color that is close to what we have.   

Something like this.

We are going to switch out the light too.  It's the typical builder light.  Ugly.  And to think I picked it out five years ago makes me cringe.  We both love the lighting from Schoolhouse Electric.  And we've picked this one out for the hallway. 

Not sure if we'll pick this finish or the antique black.  I'm excited about the changes we are slowly making in our home.  It definitely has been a labor of love but worth every dollar & every minute. 

And just for fun here are some more amazing striped hallways!
