6 Ways To Decorate With Stripes

Design InspirationSarice GutmanComment

Stripes are so classic in interior spaces.  In my opinion, stripes will never go out of style!  I am a self proclaimed stripes lover myself and firmly believe that a stripe pattern can act as a neutral in decorating (or fashion!).  Recently I noticed that I have been pinning a lot of stripey goodness on my Pinterest boards.  By the way are you following me on Pinterest yet?  Today I'm rounding up 6 easy ways to decorate with stripes in your home.  Let the inspiration juices flow!

1. Headboards

A striped headboard is a great way to bring pattern into your bed styling.  Many other prints play nicely off of stripes.  Remember, stripe pattern can act as a neutral, so don't be afraid to add floral or geometric prints with stripes.

2. Bedding or Bed Skirt

3. Rug

Striped rugs work well in a variety of spaces.  Bold stripes can help ground the room if the rests of the decor is light and bright.

Here is a wonderful example of how a bold striped rug can ground a room.  The eye needs something to rest on with such light decor colors.  That simple white desk is very much like the one I have in my own office!

4. Furniture

Stripes lend themselves well to furniture upholstery.  The clean lines go well in many interior design styles and produce a very homey, yet classic vibe.

5. Pillows and Throws

Don't feel like fully committing to a stripes pattern? Perhaps your best bet would be to utilize striped throw pillows or throws.  That way if you tire of them, you can easily and affordably switch them on a whim.

Here, a striped throw works as a neutral amongst a beige sofa and brightly colored pillows.  And is that a brightly striped cocktail ottoman? What a great look!

This black and white striped throw contrasts nicely with the floral throw pillow and the light blue sofa.  I would totally love to curl up and watch a movie there!

6. Outdoors

I absolutely love the use of stripes in decorating outdoors.  There's something great about the contrast of greenery and stripes that just gets me.  

The black and white striped cushions used for these outdoor furniture pieces are fantastic against all the greenery!
