Who doesn't love a good set of stripes? In fashion, I'm always drawn to a good stripe...whether it's a shirt or shoes or skirt or whatever.

Same thing in interiors....ticking stripe, bold stripe. I'm definitely a 2 color (not usually a fan or multiple colors unless its in a mexican style rug/mat). Bold or subtle, I can always find a use for a good stripe.
Stripes seem to be everywhere these days- walls and rugs especially!

This wallcovering featured in Country Living is a beautiful and bold way to display ticking. It fits perfect with the colonial style of the room. It also looks great on sofas and bedding.....PB has a great, standard ticking fabric.
Such a cheery bathroom....the vertical stripes continued onto the ceiling makes the room feel much taller! (material girls blog). Adding something bold like stripes in a bathroom add spice to the home without having to paint a much larger space.
I personally love wide horizontal, two-toned stripes. They are simple to do and can be subtle or bold, whichever works better for you and your space.
Amanda Peet's living room...she obviously loves stripes too :)
