Every women knows what stripes can do to elongate or widen your body, hide flaws or just plan make a statement. The rules hold true in decorating your home with stripes. A traditional home will often often have tone on tone striped wallpaper or ticking in soft coverings but what about wonderfully wide bold stripes?
Use them to make your ceiling feel higher or paint the 5th wall (the ceiling) with a bright coloured stripe for a real statement in any room. There are so many possibilities of mixing up vertical and horizontal strips in any room. Just remember to consider the scale of other pieces you incorporate to complement your fantastic stripe!
