The lure of black and white striped interiors

I have always been attracted to to the graphic punch of black and white, in particular, black and white stripes.  I am drawn to this combination in my wardrobe and in interior design.  And it appears I have passed on the B+W stripe gene to my daughter as that is the accent combo she is using in her upcoming wedding.  The black and white striped apple does not fall far from the tree!

Take a look at these interiors and tell me if you are not falling in love with this combo as well:

About hayniedi

What about me? In a nutshell I am a middle-aged interior designer and freelance writer, mother of an amazing 27 year old daughter, wife to my semi-retired lawyer husband and step-grandma to two delicious babies. From my earliest memories I have been fascinated with interior decorating and love to share my passion for beautiful rooms with anyone who will listen. Join me on this blog as my husband and I enter our empty nest years and move back into the first home we bought when we were first married that has been a rental for the past 15 years. I will share our experience with remodeling as well as other ideas and thoughts that I hope will inspire you.
