Decorating with stripes



  1. There is something about stripes that's so appealing, isn't it? No wonder they are classics! I remember wearing so many striped outfits in college (lesser now) even a guy friend started to notice and commented on it. You know how most guys don't even care what you wear until it becomes very familiar that they feel the need to comment! LOL.

    Anyway, my love for stripes don't end with outfits! It branches out to home decorating too, obviously. Now, I have two striped throw pillows, a striped runner, a striped rug, a striped table cloth, striped kitchen mats and I am planning to add striped curtains and striped decorative pillows in our "future" master bedroom.

    There are of course more striped items in my home but you get the picture how obsessed I am about it.

    By the way, I love that striped yellow and white rug in the first image and those black and white striped curtains and rugs!

    This one crazy long comment, I know. :) Hope you have a great day, Brooke!


  2. oooh, I just found your blog from your visit to mine and it is fantastic!!
    I love stripes because to me, they are a neutral print. If that makes sense. Ha.


  3. I LOVE stripes! The bigger the better :)

    PS: I think I *finally* came up with an idea to write about!!!

  4. I am definitely feeling the stripes trend lately, there is something so crisp and clean about the look paired with a touch of color, just perfect!

  5. I will never get tired or bored of stripes! They are so simple yet the subtle variations in thickness, colour etc can totally transform a space! I really love the curtains in the second image (might have to try it!)

  6. Love! We are painting stripes in the guest room this week!

  7. Great post! I love the mix of thin and thick inspiration you have here...stripes are a great way to add visual interest without overwhelming the space.
