I ♥ Stripes

I love the use of stripes in decorating. And although I haven't been game enough to do a striped wall at home, we have used pink stripes on a wall in the shop which looks a lot like the pink tented bathroom. We have also had a lot of striped clothing come into the shop this season, in particular there is this one Viktoria and Woods long cardie in grey/white stripes that I'm lusting after. The best thing about using stripes is you can go crazy or just add one element like Ione Skye's bedroom with the striped rug. I've stuck to striped cushions and throws at home but hopefully I'll get the courage up to do that wall.

What a great roundup of stripes! I love them too and would love to do a wall, but I don't think I have the patience!

Hi Jackie, We roped my sister's hubby in to doing the wall in the shop as we didn't have the patience for it either. Since then he has been inundated by local mums wanting him to paint their kid's rooms. Loved your post on all things green. Kate
