Summer and stripes go hand-in-hand. From awnings to chairs, pillows to rugs you can find classic stripe patterns popping up in homes in all styles. The bedroom above designed by Alexis Manfer (as seen in Rue Magazine), features an indigo striped throw pillow tops the bed adding a pop of color and pattern to the space. Such a chic touch!

Today, I’ve rounded-up a few home decor favorites featuring stripe patterns – some traditional, some modern and all super stylish.

For sometime The Shade Store has been a go to destination for me to source window treatments for clients as well as my own home. Do you remember the beautiful Roman Shade in our master bathroom for the One Room Challenge?

To ensure quality custom window treatments, The Shade Store manages all inventory as well as every aspect of the production process. In addition, I love that all of their products are made in the USA.

The Nate Berkus for The Shade Store Collection features five patterns for Roller Shades in neutral prints inspired by Berkus’ worldwide travels including textiles from Mexico, embroidery from Southeast Asia and printed fabrics from Europe. Some of my personal favorites are listed above. I’m loving this collection – how about you?

Elements of Modern Farmhouse Style

The simple, clean-lined, practical design of the modern farmhouse is appealing and trending. A wraparound porch, standing metal seam roof and industrial lighting is one quick way to spot one from the street. But, the rustic, yet refine style goes beyond the exterior. Inside plank wooden flooring and exposed reclaimed beams are often offsite by crisp white walls. In fact, the modern farmhouse color palette is typically very simple: black, white, and gray. Classic stripe and check patterns are also featured throughout the home including throw pillows, wallpaper and tile work. Other farmhouse elements often found are sliding barn doors, apron sinks and ship-lap siding. I’ve rounded up a few images of different rooms through a house that are great examples of modern farmhouse style.

Fiddle figs, succulents and palms have been very popular houseplants in the last few years. Recently I’ve also noticed a trend for indoor fern plants – once a huge favorite for the home in the 1970s. Producing beautiful lush green foliage, ferns help purify the air and act as natural humidifiers – loving that here in the dry, high Sierras!
