Stripe It Bold

I think you all know that I am a pattern worshiper! Stripes are definitely a favourite of mine. But as well as your standard stripes, I love big bold stripes! Just one big, bold stripe makes such a gorgeous statement - Yes, I'm big and I'm bold! A couple of smaller stripes alongside works really well too.

I already own a Clare Vivier clutch (like the one pictured below), and now I want one of everything else pictured - love the jeans x

And you can apply a bold stripe into your home as well. I love this living room that Michelle from The Design Chaser featured recently on the Milo & Mitzy blog. I'm planning on painting a corner of my living room like that now, where my desk is - to create a room within a room.

Don't stop there... The bed and chair (pictured below) have been given a new lease on life by adding a single graphic stripe. I think they look fantastic, it's a brilliant way of putting a contemporary spin on an older piece.

And these curtains are so beautiful! I love the idea of using dual fabric for contrast. The soft colours are in keeping with the serene bedroom, while still adding some 'wow'!


  1. Ahhh a room within a room. Such a brilliant idea! x

  2. Love the dual fabric for contrast!!!

  3. Great idea for your workspace! I love everything by Claire Vivier. She's great to follow on Pinterest, if you're not already! The curtains are so pretty x

  4. I like the bedroom Vic - I never thought of curtains in a stripe effect manner but the visual look is stunning!!!
    P.s - your boys room design concept was gorgeous too!


  5. I also love the idea of creating a room within a room and the grey and white combo is a winner. Have just painted my living area in grey and white and really enjoying the contrast. Would love a little Claire Vivier and Sass and Bide right now too! Cheers, Talia


It's lovely to hear from you. Thanks for your comment. Best wishes, Vic xxx
