Ideas for Decorating with Stripes (Saturday Spotlight)

Happy Memorial Day Weekend and welcome to the Saturday Spotlight!  Hopefully, your weather is better than ours this weekend!  Here in the northeast, it’s been raining almost all day and tomorrow doesn’t look much better.  If we’re lucky, the weather will clear out Monday so we can enjoy some outdoor festivities.  In the meantime, I thought I’d get kind of patriotic and highlight some ideas for decorating with stripes!

Decorating with Stripes – Navy and White Decor:

A classic and timeless pattern…

If you read my blog regularly, you know I love the classic coastal look of navy and white stripes.  Seriously, I just can’t get enough of them.  Not only do I decorate with stripes but I wear them too.  I really should take a picture of my closet so you’ll see what I mean.  It’s almost ridiculous how many striped pieces of clothing I own!

Anyway, a few years ago, I redecorated my home office and of course, I chose a rug with navy and white stripes!  Overall, I wanted the room to have a “Something’s Gotta Give” vibe mixed with a bit of Caribbean.  Well, I think I achieved that look…and by the way, my blue and white striped rug has held up beautifully!

Not only do I like my home to have navy and white stripes but I choose hotels based on their striped decor…ha!  Well, not really but I lucked out when I stayed at the Harborview Hotel in Martha’s Vineyard!  Now, was this room made for me or what?…

Unfortunately, the hotel has redecorated since I stayed there.  Of course, it’s still very pretty…just not as many stripes.  By the way, if you love these zip code pillows as much as I do, here is a variety of styles to choose from!

How ironic is this?…When we attended a Kentucky Derby party at that hotel, my striped dress matched the striped tablecloth!  As you can see, my husband had to mention it to me in a text!…

Too funny, right?  Obviously, I love my navy and white stripes!

Last year, I created an easy DIY flower box and I decorated it with a blue and white striped grosgrain ribbon…Of course, what other color would I have chosen?!

Then recently, I bought these adorable striped grain sack pillow covers!…

Aren’t they just perfect for summer?  Lately, I’ve been switching out my pillow covers with each season.  It’s much easier to store stacks of pillow covers than whole pillows.  Why didn’t I start doing that sooner?

Anyway, believe it or not…I do decorate with stripes in other colors too…

Decorating with Stripes – Table Accessories:

Needless to say, I have plenty of striped table accessories in my decorating stash!..

And for one of my favorite patriotic tablescapes I decorated with red and white striped placemats…
