2009 may be the year of the colorful home, but we've noticed that classic black and white stripes aren't losing any ground. For clean edgy impact, there's nothing quite like them.

After spotting the home of Christie and Tyler Chase on Design Sponge this fall, I began to think that stripes don't necessarily equal circus tent after all. When they're paired with a few simple accessories rather than a plethora of other textures and patterns, they exude a happy sophistication.

Like powder rooms and accent walls, hallways are the perfect place to bring life into a home with bold patterns and colors.

What's your take?
