GUEST POST: DESIGNER LIZ JOY ON ALL THINGS STRIPED!

Hello COCOCOZY Readers! I'm Liz Joy from Shorely Chic blog and am thrilled to be a guest on COCOCOZY sharing my love for All Things Striped.  I write about beach chic design, so the stripe trend happening now is a dream come true for me. I have tons of stripes in my wardrobe and love how prominent and accessible they are becoming in decor. Today, I'll share some of my favorite images of stripes in the home and will end with a shopping guide for a few of my current favorites in the market.

Stripes in the home transcend all styles, from traditional:

 to cottage in the bathroom:

to feminine glam in the bedroom:

more on glam in the bathroom: (PS WOW!)

to eclectic:

Domino Mag
to modern classic:

and of course, to nautical:

As you can see from the images above, stripes can be brought into the home in so many different ways. They can be as bold as painted on the walls, upholstered on furniture, tiled in the bathroom, or as subtle as a simple cushion the couch.

In the shopping guide below, I put together some of my favorite accessories available for purchase on the web for you to incorporate stripes in your home, and even some accessories for your wardrobe:
