This is what I did tonight! I thought the room needed a little visual interest. I initially wanted to do an orange stripe, however, I did a small sample and hated it! The color is awesome but it just didn't look right. So I found this nice brown to complement the taupe
Ignore the hideous green carpeting. I have to say that the paint makes the carpet a bit more bearable now that the entire room isn't green anymore.
What do you think? Not only am I going to do this type of thing in another room, but I think I'll use the brown again...it's a nice color!
