{Interiors Inspiration: Decorating with Stripes}

Ever since my first Paul Smith purchase I have been in a deep love affair with stripes. They may well be a graphic statement, but don't let this put you off adding further patterns into your scheme. The blue bedroom (2) demonstrates this mix and match approach, which works because the second pattern is introduced in the same colour palette as the stripes and used sparingly on throw pillows. Echoing the vertical stripes of the floor (7) in the bedside cabinets is a simple yet effective trick for breaking up the pattern, whilst wallpapering the ceiling and the walls (10) is bold, brave and brilliant.
