Bring on the Stripes!

It’s been my experience that most people have a love-hate relationship with stripes –they either love ’em or they hate ’em!  Stripes are the perfect mate for a room of florals and ikats.  They add a nice linear and (often) masculine touch to a gaggle of pillows (a little known fact:  a group of pillows, just like a group of geese, are technically known as a gaggle).  A stripe is delicious on the back of a dining chair and spectacular on a roman shade.  And don’t even get me started on how much I love a horizontal stripe on a drape.  So chic!  But there’s nothing I like better than a striped umbrella.  It brings a garden to life with whimsy and a joie de vivre that screams summer.  Black or deep brown stripes add an unexpected punch to a patio, but for me (of course) a colorful stripe can’t be beat!
