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.

House Beautiful
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!

So my style is...?

The best thing about having a new home is the ideas and inspiration we can find online as we dream of how the home will be decorated.

Even though renovation has not even started yet, there are days when I'm dreaming away of what my living room would look like.

If I were to define what style I would go for, I don't think I can put my finger on it.

It's a mixture of beachy decor made of blues, greens and greys...

Velvet & Linen

I am also inspired by the use of simple lines and natural materials, and darker, accent colours like the vases in this room...

I love neutral-themed rooms too...

And some modern elements to spice it up a little bit!

I think I will use a mixture of all the features I love in each of the photos above to decorate my living room!

Have a wonderful day!

I've always been a blue girl - meaning that I love using blue as accent colours of a room.

But lately, I've been seeing more and more rooms decorated with green! So now I'm torn between blue and green.

Check out this beautiful room with green as the theme colour.

I love the deep hue of green sofa. Notice how the green complements well with black accents? Gorgeous!

Have a great day!
