A firm favourite come springtime, crisp blue and white stripes have been used in interiors for time immemorial to evoke a touch of coastal charm. But for 2022, stripes are a-changing.
This season’s stripes are super charged, taking on a bolder aesthetic with brighter colour ways and textural contrasts. Fun stripes in a litany of rainbow-inspired hues add a playful touch to your decor scheme, while at the other end of the colour spectrum, monochrome patterns create a striking style statement.
If you’re feeling brave, choose a wall and go stripe happy for a full-on injection of fun, then tie your scheme together with matching fabrics and accessories. Stripe overload? No such thing, we say!
Stripes can be really effective in smaller spaces, so why not unleash your stripy side in the bathroom? Create a complete black-and-white colour scheme to enhance your lines and make a real impact in the smallest room of the house.
And remember, stripes don’t just mean horizontal and vertical; go diagonal with chevron patterns, or throw away the rule book with wavy stripes.
