Looking at another pattern today in the world of design, Stripes. I love stripes of all sizes, whether they’re a wild bold striped wallpaper or paint treatment on the wall or the delicate stripes of a pinstripe suit. I can’t really tell you why stripes appeal to me so much, when I was a kid I loved striped wallpaper, was fascinated with candy canes and I always wanted a barber pole of my own (moving slanted stripes) but that’s a whole different post. Stripes are always popular in both home decor and fashion, whether they’re vertical and adding height to a room and a person or horizontal and providing a whole new element of visual interest. Let’s take a look at the world of stripes and what they have to offer, Enjoy!!!

I love this paint treatment, these are two different shades of gray paint, the two shades are right next to each other on the paint card. This looks so sharp with the blue in the artwork and the orange in the room.
