A Stripe pattern is pretty much considered a staple in home decor design.
Stripes come in many shapes and sizes …
Although a stripe is pretty cut and dry, there’s nothing ordinary about a stripe pattern. They run the gamut from large-scale to a pinstripe, vertical or horizontal & everywhere in-between.
Over the last couple of weeks it seems wherever I turned I saw some sort of stripe pattern …
We were at the Statue of Liberty; above is a picture overlooking the dock, there was even a wedding taking place!
Then taking a walk over the Brooklyn Bridge, need I say more?

And of course the Olympics, track & field, soccer, swimming, shot put … the list goes on.
Looking for an organic stripe pattern? just take a walk and notice all the beautiful trees.

My Simple Real Life Truth ~
I think stripes are really a universally liked fabric, they’re all around us!
Over the years of design, I have found that using stripes is a good mediator between men and women.
