Stripes on your curtains do not have to be for a children’s room or a circus-themed room.  Stripes can be stylish, elegant, and a fun fit for any room or decor.  They are a whimsical way of using color in your window coverings and your room’s design.

Using bright colors, showing how stripes can be regal, and putting them in your own bedroom are all different ways to put this style trend to work in your designs.

Use Fabulous Stripes In An Elegant Room

Stripes aren’t just a means of fun, but can fit nicely in a classic room.  Both examples below are full of opulence and both are using striped curtains to accent the elegance of each room.

An elegant room can be full of neutral colors and simplicity.  The golds in the stripes match up with the furniture and the paneling.  The simpleness of the room is beautiful.

Also consider a room that uses the main color in the stripes far more directly.  Try some grey blues and the entire room is influenced by that main color while the small stripe becomes the minor accent instead. 

Use Bright Colors To Lighten Your Stripes

Stripes make a strong statement all on their own and stand out immediately, but for a bold room and bold designer, use a bright combination of stripes and make your room pop!

The blue and white stripes give this room a dichotomy for a fantastic pop of contrast. The rustic design and brick patio are an exciting match.

This regal and mostly white room is accented subtly with orange pillows and colors throughout, but it is the orange in the striped curtains that really brings the room together, making the room’s mood classy, but fun.

Design Your Office With Striped Curtains

Stripes in your room might seem synonymous with a child’s bed room, but that’s not necessary.  Striped curtains can be beautiful, or fun for a spring room, or even great for a summer guest room.
