Stripes on the wall – Strong and contrasting
To create a really dramatic look in your room, choose stripes on the wall with two strongly contrasting colors. This look usually works best in large rooms and it may not be suitable for a smaller space. Black and white is strong, but you can pair dark and light shadows. Red and white stripes can be ideal for a child’s room with a circus theme, while blue and yellow are an attractive combination if you want to give the room a beach atmosphere. Play with different color combinations.
You may have heard that stripes and floral patterns are not to be combined. This is not necessarily the case. Be bold, and mix the two. Place a sofa with floral pattern in the same room with the stripes or simply throw several floral pillows on your sofa and chairs. The most important thing is that they should be in harmony with the colors of your striped walls.
Vertical and Horizontal
If you wander what type of wall stripes to choose, the options are between a vertical or horizontal pattern. However, for a funky, modern look, mix the two. You can use striped wallpaper in two rooms and easy to place the paper in a different direction with both types of strips.
