The wild patterns in this amazing bathroom shouldn't go together, but they do (brilliantly!) thanks to a similar color palette and the small-scale size of the sconce's stripes, dish towel's beading and the mosaic tile floor.
The sea blue tiled floor is designed to look like the ocean floor and picks up the Noah's Ark theme from the little boy's bedroom. The pinstripe walls add pattern to the classic space, while the white vanity boasts open shelving for the easy retrieval of towels and toys.

Striped walls and decorative stenciling are whimsical design details in this gender neutral nursery. Paper airplanes soar above the modern white crib, while a rustic branch coat rack keeps blankets and hooded bath towels organized and within reach of a comfy rocking chair.
Sorting bins for lights, darks and towels don't have to be front and center.

The red-striped pillow on this kitchen banquette was made from an antique French flour sack, but you can create a similar look using vintage dish towels, says author Susan Sully. For a weekend craft, make no-sew accent pillows with the dish towels or another fabric of your choosing to add color to your kitchen.
Watery blue wallpaper brings the look of the ocean waters into the bathroom in this New Hampshire beach house. Soft-sided baskets offer an affordable yet attractive way to stow away extra towels and toilet paper for guests.
