If you like the idea of ​​stripes on the wall but you’re worried about them overwhelming the room, choose a subtle two-tone effect. Start with a color of your choice and choose a second one that is the same shade but slightly lighter or darker.

Stripes on the wall – strong and contrasting

To create a really dramatic look in your room, choose stripes on the wall with two highly contrasting colors. This look usually works best in large rooms because it might not be suitable for a smaller room. Black and white are bold, but you can pair dark and light shadows. Red and white stripes can be ideal for a circus-themed nursery, while blue and yellow are an attractive combination if you want to give the room a beach vibe. Play with different color combinations.

Floral pattern

You may have heard that stripes and floral patterns cannot be combined. That is not necessarily the case. Be brave and mix the two up. Put a floral sofa in the same room with the stripes on the wall or just put several floral throw pillows for your couch and chairs. The most important thing is to harmonize these with the colors of your striped walls.

Vertical and horizontal

For stripes on the wall, you will likely choose between a vertical or horizontal pattern. However, for a funky, modern look, mix the two. You can use striped wallpaper in two rooms and just wrap the paper in a different direction with both types of strips. Combination of the vertical and horizontal stripes creates a dramatic contrast that goes well with modern decor.
