It has been called one of the biggest trends of 2011: stripes. This simple, classic pattern is showing up everywhere – in fashion, in product packaging, and in home decor. It’s a fun look and it’s a favorite look of Studio 5 Contributor, and trend-topper, Laci Davis.
She gives us an inside tour of her very stylish and striped space!
Stripes are now! And I, for one, am obsessed. I love the pattern, and visual interest they can add to any room. Stripes also work well with most styles; you can go bold or neutral, large or narrow, horizontal or vertical. They also can redirect the eye and reshape a space. A good rule of thumb to keep in mind when decorating with stripes is- the larger the space, the wider the stripes should be, because thin stripes in a big space can look like texture from far away. And in a small room, bold stripes can feel overwhelming. Now go look around and see where stripes can spice up your space!
