How To Wear Stripes In A Room

I love a good stripe one that either makes a bold statement or an elegant effect… It is one pattern that doesn’t seem to go out of style and they complement many other patterns. Starting off with a bold look thought I would show you with using a indigo bold stripe For a bold statement try a rug, in this space it is drawing your eye in.
