The first rule of being a color obsessive: Keep your eyes peeled and your mind open. You never know when inspiration will strike—flipping through a fashion magazine, wandering a new city, or oddly enough, scrolling through your inbox. That's where we spotted this eye-catching image in a promo email from Lonny fave Serena & Lily.

With the "accent wall" trend feeling pretty passé, the time is right for a new breed of color pop, and this bold stripe more than fits the bill. In fresh spring green it's at once super daring and classically preppy. We can't get enough of the dramatic effect of molding painted to match the walls, and are longtime lovers of a painted ceiling, so why not combine the two for maximum drama?
