best of: stripes

I think if you took a vote from the d*s team, stripes would rank pretty high on the list of all time favorite patterns. They are so easily incorporated into every style of decor and just add the perfect little pop of color. I searched through the Sneak Peek Archives to find my favorite examples of stripes in homes! Let’s just say it was a little hard narrowing down the field. –Amy A
