LINES or STRIPES?

N A M A S T E  

I love monochromatic lines and stripes and recently transformed my dining room into vertical black and white stripes! I love the contrast of black and white stripes, vertical and horizontal.  The simplicity of the colors and the beauty of the linear lines amazes me and provides the right amount of balance when executed well.  Do you love stripes, and if so what would be your color choices?  Please comment below!

Here are a few of my favorite monochromatic striped interior styling images, showing the versatility and differentiating patterns that can be achieved patterned with black and white, either horizontal and vertical, or thin and thick!  I will also be including a few tips and tricks of the trade I picked up along the way! Enjoy loves! 

Basic Tips When Using Lines

HORIZONTAL: 
-lines help to widen narrow spaces 
-an illusion of elongation by bringing down eye level
-helps create a contemporary intimate setting
-accessorize with a chair
 
VERTICAL:
-the lines tend to elongate the space make them look taller 
-consider vertical lines as an accessory such as "heels"
-accessorized with large pieces of art work, as the wall is already busy enough
-creates a more playful vibe, 
-try alternating contrasts including gloss finishes, and matte to create a textured look 
DIAGONAL:
-creates a playful exciting energy 
-instantaneously used to create a vibrant space
-reflects and eclectic sense of style
