If there was one pattern that I had to choose among all patterns, it would be stripes.

I am loving this pattern that never goes out of style - be it on furniture, walls or floors.

This room has gone all out with beautiful grey stripes on the bed, the floors and even on the clothes hanging on those hooks. I love the beachy relaxed feel of this bedroom.

I like large stripes on the walls - the stripes used in this room brings out a modern edge to this otherwise feminine room. I'm loving the colour palette of blues, greys and light browns.

How about horizontal stripes on the wall? I love this bold and beautiful dining room.

Stripes look great on upholstered pieces too. I adore this combination of a striped sofa and burlap pillows for an authentic and rustic feel.

Colourful stripes look great on these wing chairs!

If you're not that bold to go big on stripes...

... they make a great pattern on throw pillows when paired together with plain ones.

I love this breakfast nook overlooking a great view. Stripes on the throw pillows looks great.

Or you can bring in some stripes on your floors from rugs...

So what do you think of stripes? I would like mine on throw pillows and smaller pieces of furniture like a wing chair or a one-seater.

And I would totally consider using stripes in a kids' room!

Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. I so agree: stripes are timeless....never out of style, Amnah. I love them, too. The small stripes / ticking are my favorites. I have many seating pieces in my home upholstered in stripes. Have a wonderful weekend! :-)

    1. Ooh, I never knew small stripes are called ticking! Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend, Loi!

  2. Love the stripes too! Stripes can make your room looks *higher* if its been applied on the wall vertically and looks *wider* if its been appllied on the floor horizontally..huhu

    1. Thanks for the tip! I never really noticed that before!
