Why, yes, as a matter of fact, we DO see the world in black and white. And for those who are on trend and bringing the classic duo into their home decor, you’ve earned your stripes.
Black and white and tread all over? The runways, as seen throughout Fashion Week spring 2013. Vogue’s fashion trends A-Z for spring featured a striped ensemble from Marc Jacobs that captures the entire trend in one uber-geometricized sweep. And we’re seeing black and white stripes serve as terrific base designs in rooms, becoming a neutral background to pops of color. However you incorporate the trend, be it a swath of wallpaper or a soft throw pillow, it’s an easy way to bring a fresh sense of order to your space.
