Stripe Hype: Striped Designs and How to Get the Look

Stripes are a design classic and have stood the test of time when it comes to home interiors. The stripe hype never seems to waver and with a variety of stripe types to play with, this classic is never boring.

From bold stripes to wide stripes and vintage floral stripes to animal stripes, these are the 3 biggest trends in striped designs for 2023 and here's how you can get the look too.

Mini stripes
For a more subtle feel, the mini ticking stripe is where it’s at. Simplistic yet versatile, it’s excellent to pattern clash with. Use a mini striped wallpaper on the walls and pair with oversized florals on your furniture and drapery for a clashing match made in heaven. 

For a similar look to this super cute girls room design by Anna Spiro, pair our Matchstick Stripe Navy/White wallpaper on the walls with a floral fabric such as our Cottagecore Oatmeal linen on the headboard.

Floral stripes
A pretty twist on the design classic, a floral stripe adds vintage charm to a space and inspires a homely feel whether it’s on the walls, upholstery or drapery. We love mixing florals so why not try pairing a striped floral wallpaper with another complementing floral print on your curtains or blinds for a classic vintage feel. 

For a similar look to Lily Allen's beautifully designed bathroom, pair Dynasty Stripe Mint wallpaper on the walls, Cottagecore Oatmeal Linen fabric on the blinds and 003 Pink Cloud paint on the woodwork.

Animal stripes
For a fearless take on stripes, go wild with an animal print. A subtle striped repeat pattern maintains consistency in the design, enabling you to easily pair it with other textures and prints in the same room. To style an animal stripe, we'd recommend using it alongside bold paint colours, whether that's on adjacent walls next to an animal striped wallpaper, or on all 4 walls accented with animal striped soft furnishings.
