When it comes to decorating with stripes, there are some mistakes you should avoid at all costs. The first mistake is not making sure that the colors of your outfit and curtains match up well together in terms of complementary hues – going wrong here can create an eyesore instead!

 A second faux pas would be choosing too many parallel lines for this type of design; while they may seem elegant initially (especially if done right) after a while everything will appear mundane because we’ve seen it before…a lot.  Always remember what MVMT said: “Stripes should always have contrast.” This means adding something unequal between two pieces so as not to see them both off.

5 Common Mistakes you should avoid When Decorating With Stripes

  1. Do not use all-black stripes – it’s too formal for the room décor and will make you look like an entrepreneur who wants to dress up their walls with severity instead of blend in!
  2. Make sure there’s enough color contrast between different patterns/colors so people can tell them apart easily when they’re looking at your design choices
  3. Try using more lighter shades such as white or light grey
  4. Consider what happens if someone bumps into one specific area
  5. The best way around this problem may be finding out which part(s) needs extra protection

Not Considering the Size of the Room

When choosing the width of your stripes, make sure you take into account the size of the room. If your room is small, narrower stripes will give it a more spacious look. If your room is large, wider stripes will help to break up the space and create a sense of balance.


 So, what are the takeaways? First and foremost, stripes can be a great way to add interest and excitement to your decorating scheme; but, there are some things to keep in mind when using them. Secondly, it’s always best to start with a plan – even if that plan is simply penciling in rough ideas on paper and prefer peel and stick removable wallpapers in strips. Finally, don’t be afraid to experiment; sometimes the best results come from trying something new (even if it doesn’t quite work out). What do you think?
