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!
