Earn your stripes: nautical fabrics and cushions for your home
Uplifting, neat and oh-so timeless, here's why striped fabrics, trims and cushions are a perfect addition to your home...
Classic stripes in uplifting shades of blue are the interiors equivalent of a Breton shirt – both are reliable staples that recall the coastal retreats we long to escape to. Mix up stripes in complementary shades and textures for a fresh 8 look that is cohesive and easy on the eye.
