So, we might be using the term small relatively loosely, but, for a lot of people these bathrooms are small. The thing we love about decorating bathrooms is that you can really go crazy and get away with it. We're firm believers that small spaces need bold looks too.

The bathroom may not be the first room that comes to mind when you think of black and white stripes and that's exactly why we're focusing on it. Stripes make a huge statement (no matter the color) and when done in black and white the outcome is modern and sophisticated.

Vertical or horizontal really depends on your own preference and ideally, the shape and size of the bathroom (even though they both work for any size bathroom). Another commendable attribute of black and white stripes in the bathroom is that colorful accessories work really well — you don't have to stay faithful to the black and white color palette. A copper bathtub, green shower curtain or blue side chair make excellent additions to the black and white stripes.

What do you think of black and white stripes in the bathroom?
