I think I am obsessed! I dream of stripes and how I can use them and find myself searching for different ideas and objects that have them. I just can't help myself.

I am not even feeling very picky (which for those of you who know me, that is definitely enough of a reason to call the doctor!). So, this "1-2-3" blog post is dedicated to stripes: in all shapes and sizes; colors and textures.

There are so many to choose from - but here are a few of my favorites..

Wide or Thin stripes?

Horizontal or Vertical?

Tone on Tone - maybe just with a Matte & Semi Gloss finish?

Strong Color Statement?

Asymetrical / Multicolored?

Maybe with a touch of Gold?

Or simply bring in the stripes through your accessories? Pillows, throws, ..etc

or stripes in the rug?

So what do you think? Which are your favorites?
Send me some pictures of how you have used them - I would love to hear from you!

  1. Very inspirational. I like thin, vertical, asymmetrically placed pin-stripes used as accents. Vertical stripes always make spaces more elegant, but horizontal ones can ground the room and increase the sense of comfort.
