In a previous post I explored polka dots, sharing a variety of ways round dots have been used by decorators and manufacturers to create a playful home environment. Today we’re moving straight ahead with stripes – another simple graphic form that can make a big impact on your decorating.
Straight But Not Always Narrow
Big stripes, skinny stripes and in-between stripes – you can find stripes of all sizes used in almost every room throughout the house.
The simple furniture and accessories in this entry might look a bit plain or boring with a traditionally painted solid color wall – but the stripes bring the room to life.
The simple black and white stripped area rug pulls the entire room together, grounding all the black and white accessories and anchoring them visually so the room feels cohesive.
Lions and tigers and stripes, oh my! Sophisticated stripes work well with with the animal print curtains and area rug, as well as the cuddly panda. The striped walls will continue to work as the child ages and more sophisticated fabric and accessories grace the room.
