This colorful space is not only a lesson in patience {tons of taping-off I’m sure}, but it demonstrates how color can be creative as well as re-created…

…In this boy’s room, designer Karen Harris used the striped lamp shades as inspiration for the painted wall treatment.  The colorful stripes fill this room with loads of energy and excitement, but I also appreciate the red space above the headboard and the white bedding, as these two elements help to quiet down all of the action.  Love it!
