Combining Stripes and Solids

Stripes are a great addition to any room. They create a feeling of sleek elegance with their orderly geometry, and they’re a great way to work with multiple colors in a design.

Stripes are also versatile enough to create different styles in a room based on how you combine colors. White and highly pigmented colors like sky blue will create a cheerful, fun look. Black and white, like in the chair above, will lend a feeling of timeless elegance. Neutral colors like brown shades can go well with anything. And combining contrasting bright colors gives off an eclectic, artsy look.

The chairs above also show how well bold stripes work as an accent on a chair. So they’re a no brainer for finding matching fabrics. You simply pick a solid fabric that matches one of the stripe colors. Easy!

Inspired to try this style out yourself? The most difficult part is choosing a color scheme. Below are several ideas for color combinations based on what look you are going for. You can also experiment with your own color combinations by searching striped fabrics here and solid patterns here.
