BLACK AND WHITE STRIPES

Who can deny the aesthetic royalty of black or white?? And more than that, who can resist the chic combo of BLACK and WHITE??

For real, I can merely say that the classic beauty of these two contrasting colours is irresistible, especially when they are used together on walls or ceilings in the form of stripes...

Black and white striped wallpapers are quite common and are almost always in fashion. The major issue is how to implement it to your own space and design.

If you plan to cover all the walls of a space with B&W striped wallpapers,I suggest to dress small spaces. For example, in a powder room,don't hesitate to cover all the walls and even your ceiling with stripes .It can only get less boring in a place where guests will get to spend less time...

HOWEVER, if you are planning to use B&W striped wall coverings in a bigger room, I suggest you accent one major wall with it. Otherwise, it can easily make your space too overwhelming. A B&W wall can be great in a livingroom, a study or in a bedroom as a major point of attraction.I even like them in nurseries as long as the stripes complement the entire decoration.

If you want the stripes to blend in more with your space, make sure you go for thinner stripes rather than bold striking thick forms. Clearly, thinner stripes will be less noticeable whereas thick stripes can easily be too distracting!

+++++Even though many people lean towards using wallpapers when they want b&w stripes, I love to have them painted as well.

This way, you can easily customise your stripes. You don't need to make them all uniform, instead the design could be done with varying thicknesses and in different shapes.

No matter how,I definitely believe in the aesthetic power of stripes especially if they are in BLACK and WHITE.

PLUS, any colour will work great with black and white , so DO NOT FEAR, a striped wall or ceiling will never dominate your overall colour theme.Just add any accessories,fabrics or even furniture made of red,purple,blue or green and you will see how both black and white stripes will further complement your choice of colours.
