Wide yellow stripes on the wall add flair to this small home office. A simple pseudo trestle-style desk sits beneath two blue graphic prints and a cushioned chair provides a comfy spot from which to work or study.
This dining room does exciting things with pattern: Ikat wallpaper makes wide stripes around the upper half of the room, tempered by white paneling on the lower half. The rug adds another graphic layer.
This teen bedroom has wide stripes on the wall and a vaulted ceiling, so to keep the bed from getting lost visually, the designer added a statement headboard. Headboard: Anthropologie; Mcanally Teardrop chair: AllModern
This living room uses color and pattern so elegantly: Wide stripes on the bottom half of the curtains pick up the rug's blue and lime green. The armchair fabric, accent pillows and houseplants continue the color scheme.
