Being an islander, you know, deciding on having stripes or not in your decor can lead to heated debates. With others or in your head.
You'd say, what's a nautical decor without its blue&white stripe. It's classic, it'll stay. But, lately, we've seen them everywhere-don't tell me you haven't thought of buying a marinière-
and we all know when something has hit the masse that much, it's not far from going. In fact, I wonder whether the stripe is already something passé.
Commiting to an expensive stripey rug, or investing time and energy and money in say, the stripey wallpaper... or patiently fake the said wallpaper using masking tape. No thank you.
Plus, patterns are notorious for dating an interior, don't they? What say you? Have you commited to a stripey decor? More importantly, have you looked back, thinking "what was I thinking?" Just askin...
May be it's a question of dosage. I still think that we're safer whitewashing and adding small touches of stripey here and there, but I confess to be a coward with patterns...
