How To Add Stripes To Your Home Decor

There is a fine line between interesting and chaotic patterns, too little and your home will lack character, too many and your home will turn into the least relaxing place possible, you need to achieve the right balance.
The diversity and timelessness of stripes make them a great solution, they create enough interest to draw your eye without overwhelming the senses, you can also add stripes almost anywhere!

Feature wall

A great way to add stripes without overwhelming the room is by starting in one area only, such as a feature wall. Choose one space to add the design and the kinds of stripes you’re looking to add. Either through wallpaper or hand painting, if you’re feeling brave, a wall with wide stripes will add character to your decor, decorate with matching accessories for the perfect look.

Trick the eye

Adding stripes to your home is the perfect way to create the illusion of more space. Choose horizontal stripes to make your room look wider, great for functional spaces such as kitchens as they add visual appeal to an otherwise simple room. Pick vertical stripes to make your ceilings look higher, adding them to an already large room will accentuate the ceiling height and the natural feeling of space.

Soft Furnishings

Sofas, armchairs, pillows, and blankets are all perfect ways to add stripes to your home. A statement armchair will lift any room without much effort, and a striped sofa will add a sophisticated interest to the room. Add pillows or blankets to accentuate other striped decorations or to add the chic look without overwhelming the space.

Statement rug

A striped rug on a diversely plain background is a powerful tool in interior design, it has the effect of redirecting the eyes or reshaping a space. The floor is often being used as ‘the fifth wall’, adding a pattern will create instant vitality and character, whilst injecting colour and contrast.

Beautiful blinds

One of the best and quickest ways to add some stripes to your home is through blinds, whether you’re looking for a way to try out the striped look, you fancy something different for the new season, or you’ve fallen in love with the striped style, blinds will be your answer.
Adding stripes to your home can add either a very elegant and classic look with striped roller blinds, or a touch of freshness by having fun with multiple colours using striped roman blinds. These mandarin and grey blinds help you achieve a contemporary style, or these blue and grey blinds will add a striking feature to your home. Choose thinner stripes for a more subtle look instead.
