Belfast Galop Stripe from Stripes by Chesapeake

” Stripes are a design staple; they are never out of style. This collection showcases the versatility of stripes, and offers a wide range of styles to appeal to the broad scope of personal taste in today’s home.” - Julie Philibert, Designer

Stripes have remained a classic and timeless tradition in both fashion and home décor. From the young to the young at heart, stripes can transcend generations. The ability to take on almost any color palette while still remaining not only put together but ageless is one of the reasons why we created this beautiful collection of designs.

Rustic Inspired

The combination of weathered wood coordinated alongside wrought-iron details, brings a rustic, rough-hewn appearance to décor that’s both organic and elegant. To achieve this natural vibe in your room, look for pieces where the wood is unrefined and the metal has an antique allure.

eclectic decorating ideas

Eclectic Haven

To accomplish a more eclectic space, mix your finishes and styles of furniture together. Pair both wood and metal chairs alongside one another, or add in a pop of color or a dazzling metallic accent. Garnish with antique accessories such as a gilded metal frame or mirror. This look is funky and stylish and allows you the freedom to personalize as much or as little as you desire.

Modern Masterpiece

Pairing wood that has a polished and smooth appearance beside ultra-refined metal as seen in the examples above brings modern flavor to décor, many times with an industrial look and feel that’s both stylish and chic. To achieve this contemporary coupling, use modern pieces of furniture as well as modern room accents to tie your whole look together.
