Super Stripes

As you know, I am a big fan of monochrome and often steer away from bright, overly patterned interiors (although I am trying to be a bit more experimental). Sometimes white or grey based interiors need a bit of zing added to them and for me there is nothing better than a stripe to do this. Here are some inspirational room sets to get you thinking of how you could add some stripey interest to a neutral room...

This striped carpet runner adds a splash of colour and personality to an otherwise cold space

A white bathroom suite can be uplifted with a great, hard-wearing rug 

A simple and cheap solution is to add a striped throw to the end of your bed to refresh simple linens


So cute for a child's bedroom to add a bit of colour

Add a painted stripe up your stairs for a fun and cheap way to add interest to a functional area

I love this room. The minty stripes on the wall are subtle and yet bring together the coral and turquoise scheme beautifully

You can't beat a cushion for making a quick and easy change to your living room. These striped cushions are a must have for any Scandi inspired home
These blinds from Apollo Blinds are great for adding some subtle texture to a modern white kitchen
