Stripes are an ideal way to warm up a grand space, and a light hearted way to jazz up a smaller one. Large rooms cozy up beautifully with subtle tone on tone striping in soft, sandy earth tones.
Metallic stripes over layered plasters make an accent wall seem to leap off of its studs, while horizontal stripes in staggered widths using bold, sassy colors are young and so fun. The lines are more natural than you might at first assume.
We see buildings and trees rising vertically side by side, and every afternoon presents us with a palette of sun set colors layered across the horizon. Our eyes are used to the pattern. The colors can come from the earth-or the funny pages; classy and elegant or wild and outrageous, but never bland and boring.
