Stripes on Walls

We love striped walls. Whether they’re vertical (typically more traditional) or horizontal (more modern), we’ve never met a stripe we didn’t like. Vertical stripes are a great way to add height to a room, whether on the walls or on curtains. And if you like lots of patterns in your interiors, they’re easy to mix with florals and geometrics (great example of this below in a Tom Scheerer family room where the walls are swathed in a bold blue and white stripe and the sofa and pillows are a mix of large and small scale pattern).

We’re feeling very inspired by stripes right now. Are you?
