How would you add stripes to your home? Would you paint the walls? Buy new furniture? Stripes are set to be one of the biggest interior design trends of 2014, and Spring and Summer collections are bursting full of stripes in every design and colorway. I’ve been searching out some of the most popular and stylish ways to add stripes to your home, so you can pick your favorite…
1 Grab Cute Chairs
2 Add Some Accents
3 Statement Walls
4 Go All over
Not keen on a statement wall? Choose a milder print, and opt for continuous horizontal stripes all around the room. I love how stylish this seems in this classic black and white stripe, but you could try a softer grey and yellow as well. Play around with your paints until you find one that you totally love, and don’t forget to measure to make sure your stripes all match up!
5 Get Fluffy
6 Soft Touch
Want an instant update? Search out some striped pillows. Just about every home shop has striped pillows in one colorway or another at the moment, so you’ll have no trouble finding some! To really rock the look, either collect a loosely-themed but all-different variety of cushions to decorate the sofas with, or invest in two or three each of a few patterns for an ultra-coordinated look.
7 Get Drapes
My final top way to add stripes to your home? Use fabrics! Whether it’s throwing a gorgeous piece of fabric over as a table runner or turning some beautiful drapes into stylish striped curtains, collect up striped fabrics that you adore, and turn them into gorgeous new homeware. Striped duvet sets are all the rage at the moment, and homemade ones will be totally unique to you!
