for the love of stripes

I absolutely love black and white stripes.


Not only are they timeless, work just as well for a modern look as they do in a traditional setting, they are the easiest way to update any look. Accent them with primary colors or add pizzazz to a neutral palette for that wow factor.

Go big or small, use them indoors or outdoors, fashion or tablescape, drapes or rug, they never go out of style. Black and white stripes are the very definition of chic, according to house beautiful. I couldnt agree more. Yes, I love me some black and white stripes.


My friends, what do you think of stripes? Are you ready to welcome stripes into your life?

  5. Darling, you’re asking a Swedish gal… We LOVE our stripes in the North!

    I was looking at a near-black and white (wide) stripe curtain fabric only two days ago. Was thinking to bring some back to Sweden to use in my dining room.. until Marshall stopped me and said I wasn’t allowed to buy anything before we go… Sob sob..
    Was worth a try though.. 😉
