Striped accessories every home needs

Horizontal or vertical, thick or thin, stripes are one of the hottest trends for interiors this spring – we round up the best striped accessories and furnishings

Stripes on stripes

Striking and timeless, stripes can be used to transform a room through dramatic wallpaper, fresh fabrics or even larger items such as furniture, including a three-piece suite or, more unusually, a cooker.

Alternatively, you can incorporate stripes into your existing decor, by selecting carefully chosen accessories such as cushions or crockery. Keep the colour or tone consistent and you’ll be surprised by what you can mix and achieve – florals, checks and stripes can all blend harmoniously providing they’re anchored by the same hue.

So, whether you’re after a fresh nautical navy and white, a Cornish sea blue and cream, an American Cape Cod feel with a touch of red, or veritable rainbow and riot of coloured stripes, we help you read between the lines.
