For people who might be fearful of decorating with color, trying to weave in a pattern, like stripes, into their decor might be a more comfortable alternative to add an element of interest to a space. Aside from having universal appeal (have you met a guy who didn't love them?), stripes are just plain stylish. And there's no better time to experiment with them than with the spring season.
I personally like to see stripes used on rugs (like this one from West Elm) and throw pillows, but you can definitely go for a more bold statement by painting stripes on a wall, for instance.
