Stripes in the Bathroom

We spotted the striped bathroom in the first image while photographing a Massachusetts home for an upcoming house tour and were impressed by how some subdued stripes can make a small space feel like the inside of a pretty jewel box.

Painting decorative stripes on a bathroom wall is far less expensive than tiling and more practical than wallpaper in a space where moisture can be an issue. Plus, stripes provide that preppy nautical New England vibe we love so much here (in small, bathroom-sized, doses).
