What's black and white and..

One of our favorite statements in any design is the black and white stripe.  We love that black and white stripes are timeless, work with all different styles, and lend a bold, graphic statement to any room design.

We have a few DIY projects to share with you that involve black and white stripes, but today we'd thought we'd round up some of our favorite, affordable ways to add black and white stripes to any room.

Two great rug options are the Ikea Stockholm and the Crate and Barrel Olin.  We love the simplicity of the Olin rug, and that the white is a bit more of a cream than you typically find in black and white rugs.  The Stockholm rug is SO well-priced and looks great with any style.

The Simone Bench from Ballard Designs can be upholstered in a variety of lovely fabrics, including a bold black and white stripe.  We love the contrast of the honey finish on the legs with the graphic stripe.

Last but not least is the Ikea Eivor throw.  At $20, it is the perfect, portable way to bring black and white stripes into any room.  The material is a really soft, sweater-like knit.  We think it would look great thrown over a couch, chair, or ottoman or at the end of a bed.

We can't wait to share what we've been doing with black and white stripes in our own homes.  Do you love them as much as we do?
