Our talented Manor Works Painting team recently finished a fun, asymmetrical, striping in a sitting area. Our team believes interior paint color reflects your personality. It is a wonderful way to make your home feel custom. Creativity can be achieved with accent walls, tinted ceilings and colored trim. Another wonderful way to bring creativity to your walls is with striping. Read below and see our process.
Our talented foreman got to work closely with our artistic client. Working alongside Allison Shortmeyer interiors, they came up with the perfect, unique design. Allison helped choose the perfect contrast for our striping: Benjamin Moore Silver Mist 1619 as background color and Benjamin Moore Wescott Navy 1624 for stripes. Benjamin Moore Simply White was used for the ceiling, trim and doors.
Preparation is key to a great paint job. Our painters carefully moved furniture, covered the floors with plastic, sanded and prepped walls. All nail pops are taken care of at this point as well as any cracks. You do not want wall imperfections to distract from your carefully chosen paint color and design.
Our team used Regal Benjamin Moore paint. This paint is very high in quality. Regal Paint is available in five finishes, including flat, eggshell, pearl, matte and semi-gloss, as well as a full spectrum of colors. Our Manor Works project used Matte on the walls. The trim was painted in a Regal semi gloss finish. Our paint was purchased from our local store Evolution Paint in Ashburn Virginia.
Once the Benjamin Moore Silver Mist background color was painted and dry the fun began. Precise measurements were taken for the striped design. The stripes were taped off on an angle to create a visual drama. Two coats of the Wescott Navy paint were carefully applied. The tape was removed, angling away from the freshly painted area. The end result… a unique room that looks like a funky piece of art.
