Stripes are such a fun and graphic way to make a bold statement in a room or in fashion. Their repetitiveness helps set a tone without offending the eyes. The options are endless as far as width and pattern repeat. The look will still read as a stripe even if the width of the actual stripes vary. I love them on upholstery, rugs, tableclothes, tops, shoes, and even in landscape design. The trick that a stripe possesses is the ability to lengthen something visually - which is exactly why I never will wear horizontal stripes from the waist down :)

Happy Thursday peeps!...
