Stripes, stripes and more stripes.

According to the interior design marketplace, Viyet, striped fabric is a perennial favorite of designers and furniture and fabric manufacturers.  That news makes this lover of stripes very happy.

As an individual I prefer stripes, checks and plaids over florals and tiny prints.  Strong contrasts make them all the better.  Graphic black and white, cozy red and black, patriotic red, white and blue or sweet pink and cream always catch my eye.  See what I mean?

A pop of black and white in this bright kitchen adds a touch of modern appeal and some visual weight to all the white surfaces.

A big fluffy bow softens the look of this striped pillow and adds a feminine touch.

A pink sriped ceiling will make the little princess in your home very happy.  Is this the cutest room?

 I never tire of black and white stripes, even in small doses like this $3 pitcher from Target…what a find!

Stripes and florals are a classic mix.

A subtle and restful stripe is achieved in this nursery by using the same color paint in two finishes, flat and semi-gloss.
