LOOK FOR LESS: STRIPED WALLPAPER


Black and white stripe wallpaper with black marble bathroom vanity <3 glam

Hello Sophisticates! Marche' from #eyecandy here with another interior design Look for Less post! I have always loved wallpaper but never imagined myself actually putting up wallpaper in my own place. It always seemed so permanent, such a pain to remove, and somewhat outdated. Recently, I ran across this amazing bathroom vanity area on Votre belle maison. I have to say the striped wallpaper made me fall in love with this room! Whether in fashion or interior design, I am always drawn to a classic stripe. The crisp and clean feel is perfect for the bathroom. I also think it's a great idea to add interest in small spaces.

I immediately expected to search for hours for a great black and white striped wallpaper like the one used above. The width of the stripe was very important. Ferm Living Shop's Vertigo Wallpaper (pictured below) is a perfect choice. However, at $126 a roll, the price could easily add up in a large room. Home Depot offers a Black and White Stripe Wallpaper for nearly a fourth of the price! This is the perfect option for a larger area or for the decorator who constantly changes their mind. If you love the stripe but don't want to make the plunge into wallpaper territory, black and white stripe curtain panels would be a chic addition to any room.



Striped wallpaper is not only fabulous in black and white, but also in gray and white (Home Depot's Gray and White Wallpaper) and navy and white (Fabrics & Papers Nantucket Striped Wallpaper.) Scoop up some striped wallpaper for your space and remember, painting your own stripes is always an option!

  1. I have a soft spot for stripes, and when it comes to my wardrobe, I have entirely too many striped pieces! All that's left to do now is take it to the next level, and a striped accent wall in my room sounds like a great idea! :)
