There are a million ways to fake the shape, size, form and flaws in a room. One of the best visual distractions is using stripes. As today was a pretty grey day in Edmonton I thought it would be lovely to bring in some color. Candy cane stripes are a bold statement that can add a lot of visual texture without necessarily adding cost or the need for many accessories. The stripe can weave you through a room or tell you where to look. It can make fat look thin and short look tall and can even throw off your depth perception. Stripes can be achieved with Paint, wall covering, fabric and a collage of other materials for any kind of DIY project.
Have fun with your furniture!
