Pattern-on-Pattern Inspiration: Stripes & Florals

The combination of graphic stripes with elegant florals can be striking and beautiful if done properly. While rarely subtle or calm, the resulting combination can energize a room and add an interesting visual effect!
  1. These bold charcoal stripes create a huge amount of drama juxtaposed with a large, ornate and vintage-inspired floral graphic. With muted colors and black accents, this room is one of my favorites. Via House to Home.
  2. Seen on Moco Loco, Missoni's Bouquet Collection from 2010 showcased these amazing striped outdoor loungers contrasted with beautiful floral pillows. The Colors and patterns together, in a myriad of colors, are beautiful!
  3. This muted grey stripe, almost a seersucker, is sophisticated and calming in the bedroom. With two pillows in a bold, dark, small floral pattern are added, the whole look becomes much more dramatic. Seen on CasaSugar.
  4. The combination of red and teal stripes is bold in it's own right, but when you add a splash of floral, like in this image from Desire to Inspire, it amps up the volume a few ticks!
  5. Perhaps the boldest examples comes from UK Home Daily Mail. Bright heavy floral wallpaper contrasts vivid multi-width stripes for an effect that is not for the faint of heart!
