Striped walls is by no means a new trend. Striped wallpapers have been around for over a century. However, updated stripe styles are making a resurgance in today’s modern interiors.
Here are a few of my favorite examples of wall stripes:
Here is a wonderful taupe and white stripe with a silver metallic edging.
How wonderful and daring! The vertical stripe is continued onto both
the floor and ceiling, becoming a horizontal stripe.
And to add a bit of the unusual, the two opposite walls are striped in the
opposite direction to complete the look.
In this room the white becomes the focus of attention when used in this manner.
The over-sized taupe stripe dominated the wall and adds drama in a subtle way.
And speaking of drama, continuing the stripe motif from the wall onto the ceiling is the
best way to create drama in a room. Additionally, the stripe is contained to the center
of the wall and is not distributed throughout as in other rooms.
This traditional application of a stripe is a great use of color. Navy, orange,
grey and white combine to create a stunning look with stripes of equal widths.
Perfect for a summer beach house, this stripe effect creates the look of a wood
planked wall. By combining stripes of slightly varying sizes the
look is asymmetrical but classic.
