Stripes!

Looking through the different fall catalogs that have arrived in the mail over the past few weeks, I have noticed that stripes are a hot trend for the fall! C&B Suffolk Settee

From loveseats and sofas, to pillows, bath towels, and more, you can find almost any item you are looking for in a fun stripe.

One of my favorites that I saw is this fun wide-striped panel from Crate & Barrel.

Crate & Barrel is also promoting their Savino Sofa.  It’s very modern, and I’m not sure too many of these will sell in Richmond, VA, but in the right space, it is definitely a statement piece.

If Pottery Barn is your go-to store, try this striped patch-work rug.  I can see it being a fun punch of color and pattern in a home office.  Or, use in a kid’s playroom and it would easily hide dirt and spills.

This striped bench caught my eye (also from Pottery Barn).  They show it in an entryway, but it would also look nice at the foot of a bed.

Pier 1 always has great pillows and accessories.  Try 2 of the ‘ribbon-pillows’ (on the left) to add a little bit of luxury to your bedding.  Stripes don’t just have to run vertically or horizontially.  I love the diagonal stripes on this pillow.

Another variation of the traditional stripes is the patchwork table runner.  The fun patterns and bright colors could be dressed up for a dinner party or dressed down as an everyday item.  The fall colors in the runner on the right make it perfect for a Thanksgiving tablescape.

Do you ever switch up your lampshades?  These two lamp shades both use a similar pattern, but their color schemes give each one a different feel.  The black and white shade feels graphic and modern, while the red and tan shade would fit in perfectly with any shabby chic décor.

If you are looking to update your bedding, try this calming blue striped set from World Market.

I also found these fun striped bath towels at World Market.  They would look great in any neutral bathroom to bring in a pop of color.

Did you know that Urban Outfitters carries home accessories?  I thought this half grey and half turquoise striped rug would be perfect for a tween/teen boy’s bedroom.

I love how stripes can be modern or traditional.  They can be used with endless color combinations and are often a good pattern to use when trying to pull all of the colors of a room together.

A few questions for you today:

º Do you use stripes in your home’s décor? º What striped pieces have you spied in the fall catalogs? º Did you notice any other trends?
