Why not consider some of these home decorating ideas using stripes for your own home?

  • Vertical stripes. Popular in the past, vertical stripes continue to appear in modern trends for their ability to make ceilings appear higher, and create a classic look of elegance. Tone-on-tone designs appear gentle and beautiful, while contrasting colors are highly striking.
  • Horizontal stripes. Used more in modern designs, horizontal stripes create a sense of width in a room. Perfect for casual rooms, these stripes develop a sense of fun.
  • Avoid clashing colors. Stripes are great for making a statement without the need for clashing colors that can make a room cluttered and confused.
  • Complementing decor. Solid-toned furnishings are best used in a room with stripes to ensure the atmosphere does not become too busy.
