Candy-Striped Decor Is So Delicious

Design Inspiration

Candy stripes…yum. There’s just something about those deliciously bright colors of pinks, blues, yellows, oranges, and greens banded together like old fashioned ribbon candy that makes us smile. Installing an entire floor or just placing a piece or pillow or two is a great way to cheer up a neutral design pallet and add that pop of color everyone’s always talking about these days. Try sprinkling a little sweetness like these examples below into one of your rooms…it could be dandy!

Cabinet Candy: metal cabinets painted in yummy colors are instantly softened and sweetly sophistocated. Photo: kristinaklarin.blogspot.com

Pillow Candy: for a pop-rock pop of color, these super-striped throws explode with style. Photo: katyelliott.com

Canvas Candy: if your taste calls for more confectionary refinement, this painting illustrates that possibility. Photo: katyelliott.com
