I love the use of black & white stripes in interiors. The look can be quite dramatic, yet romantic when combined with soft colours and lines, as in the chairs and lamp above (from EDIT).
Here a couple more shots from EDIT’s press gallery.
Black & white stripes make me dream of Paris (which I am yet to visit), as they remind me of an awning above the window of a French Patisserie.
In our new bedroom, we will have black & white stripes in the prints above our bed (seen here) and I am considering either upholstering the bench seat under our window or making a throw cushion for one of my antique-style Louis chairs in Marimekko’s Juhla-Raita fabric (below left) or the cheaper Sofia fabric from IKEA (below right).
P.S. Thanks to my Dad for all his help today, despite having a head cold. xo
