Why Not: Stripes!

Bold. Interesting. Stripes can make a statement in a space unlike anything else. On the floor or on the walls or even ceiling...

And stripes can go anywhere. The bathroom above is in the Roman home of architect Achilles Salvagni but the striped floor continues into the kitchen seen below!

This incredible entry below at the home of Lara and Jeff Sanderson by Kelly Wearstler features a double dose of stripes on the floor and the ceiling!

A riot of color erupts from the striped walls in the vivid home of Muriel Brandolini.

In the home of Todd Hase, stripes in a tower bedroom give the appearance of being in a tent!

Paula Caravelli of Paula + Martha used large scale, graphic brown stripes to great effect in the butler's pantry of her home.

Red stripes in an entry by Kristina Ratia are a fun way to say hello and announce your personality to visitors!

Designer Bruno Caumont used hand-painted lilac and cream stripes as a classical background for a salon-grouping of art pieces.

If you're ready to give stripes a try, whether with tile in a bathroom, or with wallcovering or paint on your walls, give me a call!

Happy designing!
