Striking Stripes

Stripes have a been popular since ancient Egypt; they just never go out of style! Whether used in an overall traditional or contemporary interior design, and everything in between, stripes work! It can be an elegant silk or work-horse ticking; there is an abundance of fabrics, wallcoverings, furniture, and carpets that incorporate stripes.

Here's a great urban use of stripes as a pedestrian walkway. Very smart and eye-catching!

I recently installed this spectacular handwoven Kasthall rug in a client's condo. Kasthall, located in Sweden, has been in business since 1889. It makes a strong graphic statement and puts an exclamation point on this entrance hallway! I wanted something geometric to balance the figurative painting.
