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).
In a living room of Carolina Herrera, below, the walls are striped as are the curtains and a few of the chairs. We love how inviting but still very dressy this room feels.
For a more modern beachy vibe, try vertical stripes like this:
Jean Louis Denoit does very subtle, metallic horizontal stripes in this apartment.

It’s hard to tell in this photo from Elle Decor whether the walls are fabric covered or painted, but either way, they look fab.
A very thin stripe feels very chic in this bedroom, below.
Miles Redd loves to tent rooms and cover walls in stripes. He uses one of our favorite Bennison stripes in this tropical home, below.

How bold and cheerful is this bathroom?!
We love the modern edge these wide, horizontal stripes give the windows in this very classical apartment.
You can never go wrong with blue and white stripes.

Chic, chic, chic!
We’re feeling very inspired by stripes right now. Are you?
