The stripe fantastic

Using stripes is a great way to energise a plain room and give your home some real character. There are all sorts of ways to combine them, whether you go for dramatic monochrome or bright contrasting colours. Choose bold pastel stripes for a summery look or fine, pale ones to create a touch of class. Striped furniture makes it easy for you to create a stunning look.

Do not be afraid to use different kinds of stripes in the same room; the results can be really effective. You simply need to break them up with areas of solid colour if they clash. Stripes can help to draw the eye in a large, plain room or they can be used to add something more interesting in a smaller space. It’s all up to you.
