Love them or hate them, striped walls certainly make a statement. Graphic stripes are bold and at times brash (and I mean that as a compliment). Tonal stripes bring a more subdued and quiet look to a room. If the idea of painting or papering your walls with stripes is a bit too much, you can always achieve the look by using striped fabric, as Alessandra Branca did below. Here are a few examples of wild, snappy, and chic stripes.
