Reading Between the Lines

I absolutely love the boldness of a stripe! And what is even more fabulous about them? They are a classic so they stand the test of time. Think they're too bold for you? Try a few cushions, they look great against other prints as long as you marry them with others of a similar colour. More daring? Try covering your walls. Whoa Miss Walker! What about somewhere in between? Opt for a gorgeous piece of furniture. My all time favourite, a striped covered Louis!
Do you love a stripe? Would you ever do the walls or prefer a more subtle stand alone piece like a rug or chair or a couple of cushions?

  11. So lusting after the chair in the first pic... what a stunning statement piece! I have always wanted to do a striped wall but as hubby can be a bit of a buzz-kill when it comes to decor, I am still trying to make him realise its beauty...

  13. Another beautiful collection. I was just trying to decide if to do stripes in my laundry room which is big, but long like a hallway... Good photos to consider when making that decision! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment AND following! That's awesome. I appreciate it.
