10 Fabulous Variations on a Striped Room was originally published in Thou Swell

Stripes are always flattering—vertically that is. Without realizing it, out of all the rooms I hand-picked for the roundup, all but one feature vertical stripes. Verticality is a great asset, as it draws your eye up, visually lengthening your walls and adding height to your ceiling. It can be a great optical illusion, and even if you don’t need the effect, stripes are timeless and always-chic.

Whether you opt for a traditional cabana stripe in the living room for a playful contrast on the walls, or a tighter pinstripe for visual drama (like the punchy powder room above), there are many variations on a stripe that can read modern or traditional—and anything in between. For more striped room inspiration, check out the stylish rooms below!
