Yellow & White Stripes

We have loved yellow and white stripes ever since we saw the nursery ceiling in the home of J. Crew creative director Jenna Lyons. The pattern and color remind us at once of circus tents and classic cafe canopies: fun plus style all rolled into one.

The pairing seems to work best in wide stripes, and we particularly love it when it slopes up from wall to ceiling (as in the first photo above). What do you think? Too much? Or just right?
