Red and White Striped Decor

Hi all! I’m Jennifer and I write for Arcadian Home Decor, a site that chronicles the work of top interior designers and home decor trends around the world. I've been writing about home decor since graduating university and have loved it ever since. I'm addicted to patterned fabrics, Jonathan Adler, chaise lounges, old doors, milk glass jars, antiques, and chandeliers. Erin, the owner of Stillwater Story blog, and I both have a love for everything Martha Stewart and reading blogs (I've always been a fan of her posts), so I was tickled pink (or red!) when I found out I'd be writing a guest post for her about red and white striped decor. Thanks Erin! Stripes are beautiful. They work in formal as well as casual spaces, they look great on walls, furniture and they can really be used to achieve any stylish look. Fat stripes, thin stripes and even those that are zigzagged, here are a few rooms boasting red and white striped decor. Give a transitional space like a hall or entryway some whimsy with bold red and white stripes. The traditional furniture is a pretty juxtaposition from the eccentricity of the wallpaper.
Red and white striped dishes on an open shelving display can become the showpiece of a kitchen or dining room.
Flex that patriotic muscle with a bedroom inspired by the red and white stripes of the American flag. Stripes run rampant in this space with lined furniture, carpeting and window treatments.
Striped bedding and vibrant wallcoverings add dimension to this bedroom with bunk beds - the pale-coloured furniture and flooring offset the loudness of the red and white stripes.
Give a tired workspace some life with red and white striped curtains - it instantly amplifies the plain space and becomes a place where the eye is immediately drawn.
What's sweeter than a sweet table flanked by red and white stripes? The wall provides a fun backdrop, while the colour scheme is carried through in the red and white polka-dot ribbon and white paper snowflakes.
Who loves red and white stripes? The Cat in the Hat, of course! The character who loves rhyme is perfect for over a crib and looks even more visually appealing when placed over a red and white striped wall.
The soft red and white tones of this bedroom are reflected in the fabric details of this space, adding just enough panache.
