My son and daughter-in-law just painted our grandson’s bedroom. It is a spectacular, self-designed pattern of peanut red, white and sapphireberry blue stripes. If you are familiar with the Pottery Barn kids’ furniture, you may also recognize the Benjamin Moore paint colors designed to go with that furniture, and accessories like picture frames.

What a great partnership between two natural allies, teaming up to make decorating coordinated.

I give the parents credit for sticking to their planned design in the face of repeated trips to the paint store for more striping tape and paint. And, instead of a weekend project, one that took two weekends and every evening in between.

But, it’s done now. And, it looks spectacular.
