Tone On Tone Stripes

I’m meeting with a client this morning to finalize paint colors for some tone on tone stripes that will be painted in their family office.  I really like the look of large horizontal stripes in a room and when they are tone on tone they have a very classic look to them.

When going for the tone on tone look, just pick a paint colors that are about two shades away from each other to get that subtle look.  If you would like a bit more differentiation, you can do one color matte and the other glossy.
