stripe hype [in b + w].

I came across this great picture of Natalie Wood in a scene from Sex and the Single Girl, and although she looks fabulous as always, it was her daring desk chair that really caught my eye.   I was immediately inspired to seek out modern uses of the classic black + white stripe, as used in current interiors.  A bold, yet very chic choice, the b + w stripe can be used through dramatic wall-coverings or as an eye-catching accessory [think pillows, throws or rugs].  Here are a few great uses of this timeless, yet audacious play on the age old theory that opposites really do attract...

Love Natalie's sophisticated look, but I would probably replace her mod chair with this fabulous modernized Louis XVI find...(if it were up to me)...

And now for some ultra chic uses of the stripe...[love, love, love!]

  1. I'm always advocating doing something fun, bold and crazy in a powder room. The black & white stripes in that JCrew/Lonny pic are a great example of what I mean. Love 'em.
