Focus on Stripes: Fun Decorating Ideas From Rate My Space

Integrating playful stripes into a design can make a major impact on any room. Check out these unique ways to decorate with stripes, from bedroom walls to living room accessories, each designed to inspire.

  • A Floor Show

    The stripe trend isn't limited to walls. For maximum impact, an eye-catching rug, like this black-and-white design, works wonders. The secret is scale: Make the rug big enough to create a super-sized statement. Design by RMS user cherrybounce

  • Artful Additions

    RMS user modern123 limited the use of stripes to one section of the back wall in this simple and modern living room. The result is a super-chic space with varying shades of gray and a vibrant hit of turquoise.

  • Jen416 nautical boys room

    Classic Combination With a Twist

    RMS user Jen416 chose a classic combination of navy blue and white for this wall, creating a preppy and sophisticated look. By adding two special touches — a monogram and a vintage wooden oar — the room now has an additional layer of personalization.

  • The Right Rug

    To complete this living room's ultra-modern look, all it took was the perfect rug. Alternating squares of stripes give an already polished space just enough pop. Design by RMS user 10831890

  • Keeping Calm

    To bring this traditional bedroom together, RMS user LadyDie painted one wall with alternating shades of soft brown. This combination of colors not only coordinates with the rug and bedding, but also creates a calm and soothing feel.

  • A Relaxing Room

    While stripes are often limited to one accent wall, RMS user mom23 wraps a full set of stripes around the bed, each one in a graduating shade of foam green. Using variations of the same color creates a tranquil and unified feel.

    Nautical Nursery

    For a single detail with a powerful pop, we love this nautical nursery by RMS user babyhooddesign. The dark walls work perfectly with a set of white stripes bordering the top and accented by the baby's name in white letters.

  • Sister Shades

    For her guest room, RMS user AliciaR employed two shades, turquoise and cornflower blue, to create a cohesive beach look. One trick to steal: A single blue stripe bordering the turquoise wall brings in the color from the solid wall, creating a smooth color transition.

  • Make a Major Statement

    This isn't your average striped-wall treatment. Instead, RMS user dm went over the top with an American flag design. Precision is key for this kind of detail work; a laser level was used to ensure that each stripe was painted in a straight line.
