Stripes have always been hugely popular, from the plain and simple nautical navy and white combo, to the bright colours of a candy stripe. I think most of us sees a stripe as a classic choice that you can vamp up depending on your colour bravado, the style of the stripe or how you use your stripe. It is a pattern that most of us are comfortable with, no matter how reserved you are in your interior (or fashion) choices.

The latest collection of fabrics from Vanessa Arbuthnott, called Scandinavian Weaves, is a new journey for her as her previous designs usually are printed fabrics with coordinating plains. These new woven stripes with a reverse as pretty as the front, ideal for unlined curtains or blinds, and will make great upholstery too. As they are all made from ethically produced fibres and 100% echo friendly flax, they have a lovely tactile quality about them. Their colours are also designed to complement some of the existing ranges and of course they sit very well with the new ‘Wallpaper and Wallcoverings’ collection (being featured here on Livingcolourstyle.com soon, watch this space).
