As a general rule, this decoration is quite playful, but also quite childish, so it will go best if applied to your children’s room.
Streaking has a unique word in the design industry, which is Strie. Strie isn’t actually a word you’ll find in the English dictionary, but one that you’ll find in the French.
Strie is a technique, developed by the French, of painting either horizontal or vertical lines on any texture. The end-results closely resemble linen, and it looks stunning, modernistic, and very playful.
Streaking is also very DIY-friendly, but we do recommend you watch a video or two before your first try. There is no better way to add a bit of space into an empty room than with this technique.

It’s also fun for the whole family, and it could be great for some family bonding. Just make sure to involve the kids as they will love it.
