Guest Picks: A Hot Streak of Black and White Stripes

Rachel Grace August 13, 2012
Decorating with stripes is a wonderful way to make a dramatic statement in your home. From tablescapes to upholstery to decor, there are so many ways to incorporate black and white stripes into your humble abode. Thin stripes tend to be subtle and timeless, while wider stripes make bolder statements. Whether you're striving for a monochromatic scheme or looking for bright colors to pop against them, black and white stripes can be anything you want them to be! — Rachel from Raenovate
