Color Pop: Paint a Band of Brightness Across a Room

For those of us who shared a bedroom with a sibling growing up, the idea of delineating your space thanks to a line (often times marked with masking tape) is no new concept. This, however, is a much more sophisticated take on the idea of bisecting a space.
The owner of this Parisian apartment embraced a bright color palette when decorating, relying on bright splashes of yellow and green to augment white walls and furnishings. In the bedroom, a band of green has been painted from the walls, over the ceiling, and across the window. Instead of relying on paint for the window, though, a plastic adhesive was used to create the effect.

While I'd automatically assume that painting a single stripe across a room would create a preppy or sporty effect, in reality, this room looks much more avant garde and artistic than anything else. The competing shades of green also amp up the effect of the stripe, creating a simultaneously harmonious yet slightly off — in a good way — look to the space.
