“Why not consider stripes next time you’re looking to update your decor?”
Apparently stripes are “in” for 2013 but honestly, have they ever been out? Wide or pin, horizontal or vertical, stripes are classic yet versatile enough to go with absolutely any decor style.
Combining and updating: Above is an example of a his and hers place -a young couple’s first apartment. A mix of modern and eclectic, feminine and masculine. Adding a new bold stripe rug, a textured striped ottoman, throw pillows and small stripe picture frame help to tie the colour palette and make both of their individual stuff come together in a more purposeful and unified way.

Keeping it from getting too girly: Imagine this look (above) without the modern striped rug or the in-your-face graphic pendant light fixture (or the striped tray, plant container, throw pillows and frames…). If the rug and pillows were floral and the fixture was a crystal chandelier the feeling of this space would be much softer and more feminine -not to mention that the gold gun table lamp would look really out of place!

Lightening it up: Those who love pattern can sometimes get carried away! Just because the honey bee repeat pattern drapes, kaleidoscope rug and floral throw pillows all match by color doesn’t mean they go together! Edit out a few items and opt for the classic and always versatile stripes instead! Stripes go well with a variety of patterns and can go a long way in helping to break things up by making a space feel less heavy.
