Image from AV Interior It is no secret I have a thing for stripes. A little bit of an obsession my husband might say. But really, what design minded person doesn’t love stripes? They are great for adding pattern to a space and depending on the colors, they can be bold, soft or just the pop of color and playfulness you need for your room. Modern striped textiles might even be the most fun application of this design trend. There are so many different types of stripes, and I love them all! In this room, I absolutely adore their use of black and white stripes. Some big, some small, some on the rug and some on the throw pillows. If you love the Scandinavian trend, then this room will really do it for you. It’s clean and modern with an element of fun because of all of the stripes! Now, if it were my space, I would need to add some color to it. But the reason I picked this room as my inspiration is because it uses different sizes of stripes to achieve the look and I love that. 1.  Contemporary Koi Glass Bold Stripe Color Plus Ovo Table Lamp 2. Safavieh Bleeker Cream Stripes Set of 2 Accent Pillows 3. Avanity Knox Zebra Wood Rectangular 36-Inch-H Wall Mirror The table lamp I picked above is a great bold color. While it’s bold, it is still just a few shades away from pastel and that makes it workable with other colors. I think it would be a great addition to so many living spaces to add a pop of color and a splash of pattern. The pillows have a totally different stripe than the lamp, and perhaps you wouldn’t want to use them together. But I think depending on the furniture and the rest of the room’s color schemes and patterns, you could make these work together nicely! The pillows are great for brining in even more color to the space but with a neutral background, they aren’t overwhelming for the room. Oh that mirror! I love this mirror. For one, it has stripes throughout it which are subtle. The fact that you can have a natural element like a wood mirror that also has a great pattern like stripes in it, is just perfect to me. I really cannot say enough great things about this mirror. Image: AV Interior
