My 3 year old son's room is in desperate need of some colour. I loved the blue and white horizontal stripes we painted in our old house and I would like to stick to wide stripes (not necessarily horizontal). I can't visualize how to paint the walls in his new room because there is a chair rail and a peak above the top beam in the room. There are essentially 3 parts to this wall. Should I paint stripes in the middle section only, and leave the top and bottom solid? Should the bottom be painted blue, and the top white? The 2 side walls do not have the attic part. Any suggestions?
