Does a Zebra Have Stripes?

Hello, my name is Lora and I am addicted to stripes. There, I said it. It's been a lifelong problem, really. What can I say? Stripes make me happy and here is why...

The color palette, the fabric, the lighting and most of all the ceiling. Bravo, Ms. Tobi Fairley!

This room is so not my style and yet it is one of my favorite photos I've seen in weeks. Everything about this room works and screams awesome. Photo is from the book Litchfield Style: Classic Country Houses of Connecticut.

The way Windsor Smith creates stripes with the window treatments is just lovely.  The zebra stools are the perfect addition.

Subtle stripes by Tobi Fairley makes for such a relaxing kitchen. I mean seriously, I can see myself walking on that floor barefoot with an ice cold glass of lemonade in one hand and a trash mag in the other. 

Yet another beauty by Tobi Fairley. Love the color, the mix of patterns... I think we may be kindred spirits.

This room by Adore Home makes me want to take a tropical vacation STAT! I can actually smell the Maui Babe now.

Now with all of that inspiration, go paint some stripes this weekend!
