Stripes can make the smallest of rooms appear larger and the shortest of rooms appear taller. And though it may be modern at heart, stripes can be infused into almost any decorating style with the right color, width/height and piece. Combining two or more colors together, stripes bring life to a space without making it too busy. And if you’re really daring, pair this pattern with hints of florals and other solid-colored accessories. Whether it’s with a striped pouf or a striped rug, there’s a striped piece to work in your space.
