Stripes are a classic element in coastal home design, but many homeowners find decorating with them to be just a bit tricky. How many stripes are too many? And what’s the best way to incorporate them into a room? Let’s take a look at a few tasteful ways to decorate with stripes.
If not arranged properly, a bedroom might be overwhelmed by the addition of bedding with extra-large stripes. However, if your bedroom furnishings include one or two items in complementing shades and smaller striped or checked patterns, they will balance out large stripes very nicely, as shown in the bedroom below.

In informal areas, like the kitchen or family room, stripes can be used as a tasteful accent, such as on a lamp shade.
