It’s no secret that I love stripes almost as much as I love colour, so you can easily imagine Mr. Bazaar’s delight upon discovering this cosy bedroom space that combines both such decorating elements. This little space looks like a cosy guest bedroom, which incidentally is also the ideal room to step outside your normal decorating boundaries. Much like with the design of a hotel room you can afford yourself the luxury of being bolder with your design choices in a spare bedroom. Here we can see how sticking to a palette of lime green and paper white has given the stripes more authority in the space due to the element of surprise. The lime green colour makes an otherwise all-white space feel very colourful but doesn’t prevent it from feeling fresh and calm. This balance is achieved by breaking the vibrant hue with wide white stripes and softening it with delicate lace textiles. The stripe pattern not only brings visual interest but it pulls the eye upwards making the pitched ceiling seem much more lofty than in reality. How do you use stripes in your own decor choices?
