Stripes





Crisp striped walls have never been out of style, but lately I've noticed a resurgence of boldly contrasting dark and light lines. Maybe it's the renewed interest in old school decorators who favored stripes and symmetry, such as Elsie de Wolfe. Shown top, Chicago designer Anne Coyle's apartment entry as seen in Elle Decor, March 2005. Below that, the interior of Chapman Radcliff and last, Kate Spade in her own home, as seen in Town & Country, October 2004.

You may seen it already, but just in case... the Dec. issue of World of Interiors is featuring an article on Kate Spade's apt.. In fact, that's their bedroom on the cover!

BTW, how cool is that Vanessa (Turquoise!) has posted about your blog on AT:LA?!! I love that!! Hooray!
