For an unexpected spin on a classic pattern, consider using vertical stripes in varying widths. It works for walls, furnishings, and even floors. Vertical stripes also tend to elongate a room, so they're great if you want to make your ceilings look just a little higher...

The photos above show vertical stripes used in a variety of ways. They can define an entrance, pull together various patterns in a room, or even create a "headboard" for a bed. For more information on each of these projects, click through the links below:
