Thinking of Decorating with Stripes?

Lately, I have been loving stripes! It is such a great pattern and can really make a difference in a space. They are so versatile; the options are endless. You can use them in a traditional setting with tone on tone color or go totally modern with bright, bold colors. One can decide between ticking stripes (my favorite), awning stripes, candy stripes, pinstripes, the list can go on.
Below are some creative ways to use stripes in different ways. Really take a look and see how stripes really affect the room and create an impact whether big or small.

Are you afraid of using stripes? Don’t be! Just a dash of this lovely motif can do the trick such as on a tablecloth, curtains, lamps or pillows. Use it as an accent.

Stripes can add great drama to a room with contrasting colors and large stripes. You would be surprised as to how many designers use this method such as Dorothy Draper and Kelly Wearstler. It can take on a whole new look and create something dramatic and eye catching.

If you want to be subtle you can use monochromatic stripes, which will add a softer touch.

The direction of stripes can also create a certain illusion in a room, meaning they have the power to reshape it. Using vertical stripes on a wall can make the space feel taller and add height, where using horizontal stripes on a wall can make the space feel wider.

Stripes can really liven up a room and create a sense of harmony. They can mix beautifully with floral patterns or solid colors. Adding a stripe can really unify the space especially when there is more than 1 color in the stripe. A stripe is very simple and can interact with any pattern as well as the style of design.
