My Life in Stripes

Unmade Bed

I always like to share the little things that catch my fancy during the week and when my gray ticking-striped quilt arrived …I just had to share.

I was getting ready to do a load of laundry (always wash new linens and bedding before using to remove chemical residue from the dyeing process) and admired how the Draper Stripe pillow shams and sheets from Dwell Studio look with the ticking-striped cotton coverlet from West Elm.

Perhaps my penchant for stripes is bordering on some kind of design OCD, but the contrast of my striped bedding with my broad-striped, silk shantung covered screen makes me happy. It might seem counter-intuitive to design with a “more is more” attitude in such a small space, but you go with your gut. Stop me if I buy another striped rug!!
