“I like the idea of painting the stripe on the door, maybe in your kids’ room. Maybe you give them the chance to pick a color for theirs. You don’t have to feel like you’re making a huge investment or big commitment. It’s a fun, fun way to add some flirty color,” Voss said.
You can also try using patterned paper to decorate the back of cabinets. There’s no big commitment and it’s an easy addition.
No glass kitchen cabinets? No problem.
“This could be a detail in the inside of a bookcase or inside of a buffet — even if it’s more traditional, it could be fun to have it be a more contemporary print,” she said.
