Let’s get things straight—or zigzag, if you so desire: stripes are hot for spring this year.
Everyone from Marc Jacobs (evidence on the left) to Jonathan Saunders to Victoria Beckham flaunted fresh incarnations of the pattern in their ready-to-wear runway collections. Now the trend is breaking out of the closet and flooding the rest of the home.
High-end home design retailers and plenty of budget-friendly brands are making a splash in the showroom with statement-making furniture and fun decor pieces.
Try high-contrast stripes or ones in bold color combos to make a big impact, or shop for oversize chevron in a glamorous metallic. Or, if you count yourself among the pattern-averse set, start simple with clean, minimal accessories that toe the trend with a tiny slice of color.
