Stripes: simple, yet chic. We love decorating with them because they’re classic yet versatile, and can be used as subtly or as boldly as desired.

One of our favorite ways to use stripes is on the walls! Thick, bold lines make the most impact:

While we always say “yes!” to big and bold, you can also stick with smaller striped patterns, for a more subtle effect. Try choosing accessories such as lamps, pillows, or even bedspreads.

Tip: pair bold stripes with an equally bold wall color for maximum impact!
