Stripes......don't ya' just love em'!
I could post for days about stripes!  They are one of my favorite visuals in design.  Different color combinations, sizes, installations, all so different and fun. 

This is an example of perfect stripes.  Now does this make you happy or what.  If it doesn't I really don't know what would.  This might be a lot in a large room but in this little bathroom with a white pedestal sink and white hexagon floor, it is the best!

I have never seen a painted striped floor that I did not like.  And to contrast the floor, I am sure you have all seen this famous "Domino" picture of the nursery with the painted striped ceiling.  There so many great things about this nursery that are unexpected.  First the black accent wall and black furniture.  But then you have this great ceiling that lives the whole thing up.  I don't know if I would have ever put this together but it all just works.  I have always loved this picture. 

Striped rug!  Gotta have at least one!

Jay and Lily's little art stool. 

This is another swimsuit from "Marysia", the local Charleston, SC swimsuit designer.  Now don't come knockin' unless you are rockin' this swimsuit. 

Talk about bold and graphic.....I am talking about both this black and white horizontal striped hallway and the "White Stripes".  Both pictures really make a statement and I just LOVE it all.....psychedelic

I think these pink and white striped chairs are super cute.  But the little girl in this room is really the cutest thing in the space.  There are a lot of things I love about this room.  Little girl, striped chairs, vintage rug, and the white walls with that pink African head dress are to dye for!!!!!

And this guy.....Well he is just plain groovy!

Stripes on little boys are really cute.  And I know you all know how wonderful the "Mini Boden" catalog is.  Jay has a couple of pairs of these pjs in different prints and he wears them every night.  The longer shorts make him look like such a big boy. 

The ultimate in femininity is this first "Domino" magazine picture.  If I was a single girl this is what I would have.  Now the picture of this room turned into a closet with the great grey and white striped rug is just flat out a DREAM.  Aaaaaah........

 This is my all time favorite picture of my children.  This Madeline Weinrib Atelier rug is wonderful too!
