Show Your Stripes

I just realized I have a strong affinity for stripes. I get all goo goo ga ga when I see a black and white striped shirt. Sometimes I even venture out and buy blue/white, navy/red, or gray/ black.  I’ve had several in my recent life and tend to gravitate toward more as soon I see a display of them inside a store. I haven’t quite figured out the reasoning behind it nor does it really matter, I suppose. Clothing wise, I prefer horizontal stripes even though they must be worn with caution (Don’t wanna look too wide now). But indoors, I sway toward vertical stripes as they lend a more sophisticated look.

I share with you some fashionable horizontal stripes and some vertical stripes for the home.

As tired as I am of the belt-around-the-waste look, Kate Moss makes it work

’cause, well, she’s Kate Moss, but not cinching it bothers me less.

And now for some vertical stripes.,,,white,interior,design,pink,stripes,aqua,decor-c90136995e62d6ae64a9076737b30669_h.jpg

The striped roman shades add that extra punch to this otherwise mellow room.

Beautiful entry. Could those stripes be any more crisp? The zebra pattern adds a great extra element, making things more interesting.

A whole lot of dizzy going on. The mix of horizontal and vertical stripes prevent one from going entirely crazy.

If you’re not ready to take the plunge into striping your walls, a

headboard is a fun alternative.

What a lovely photograph. These stripes create a circus tent-like experience without the raucous.

Remember this vignette I created a few posts back.
