I love black and white and I love stripes. Combine the two and you have perfection! It's a great way to artfully combine the two styles of bohemian and a little bit more modern. I'm constantly adding new images to my stripes folder to inspire me when I get ready to tackle decorating my living room.

Look at the lamp! The tufting! The trunk!

I love the wide stripe on this chair with the nailheads, the rest of the room is meh. Wall color is nice...

For me, this is a bit much but I still like to look! I might have gone with a brighter rug as well.

Now this is a favorite. Love the pops of hot pink and combo of patterns on the chair and couch cushion. The bust would probs scare me in the dark.

The black and white runner makes this room look longer. Love the hood over the stove.

This one is a little meh too but the idea is still nice. I just think there needs to be more pattern.

So do you love a black and white stripe as much as I do? Ikea has a great one, but I'd also like a stripe in some upholstery. What do you have in your home?

I love black and white stripes! That bathroom is INSANE, love it! And I agree, the bottom pic is awesome, where there is black and white, there must also be hot pink! XO!

I love that kitchen floor. I have a few striped sheets I use on my daybeds, but they are more pastels. But I love stripes regardless of the colour!

I loooove black and white stripes, I've been thinking of recovering a chair for my living room in a thin black and white stripe fabric -- you may just have convinced me :)
