Get in line
A quick tip to get started is to plan your striped effect around an existing architectural or structural space in your home or office – such as built-in cabinets, or bookshelves. By playing with the lines in structure that already exist in your space you can easily create a wonderful graphic effect.
When it comes to choosing your colour tones, you’ll want to pick colours that make you feel relaxed yet creatively stimulated. Play around with colour swatches until you find an appealing combination, and then arrange the colours whichever way takes your fancy – there are no rules. Here, pewter, stone grey and slate grey have been extended onto the bookshelves, creating an elongated look that adds visual interest to the space.
Keep it simple
To enhance the calm, neat effect, keep the furniture in your home or office understated and the accessories to a minimum. For the ultimate creative space, surround yourself with things that inspire and motivate you – be that books, artwork or lush greenery.
