I love stripes

One of my lovely followers introduced me to the wonderful Jane Cumberbatch after I’d featured her home in the post Pale and Interesting. Since then I’ve bought a couple of her interior design books and her sewing book (again, based on the advice of my follower) and I’m totally hooked. Jane’s style is so clean, simple and effortlessly stylish, a breath of fresh air. One of things I have seen on her blog (Pure Style) is a new product she’s designed, which I want to introduce you to: stripy wallpaper border. It is so simple, yet really effective and could transform a room; a million miles away from the twee wallpaper friezes of old. Have a look…

The wallpaper border is available to buy on Jane’s website Pure Style. What do you think? I might have to give it a go in my hallway, which is a bit dull. But what colour to choose…

    What a fantastic idea. Such beautiful clean lines, and it fills the space perfectly. I want! 🙂

      It think I’m going to get some…£30 and it comes with the paste. Thanks for the comment 🙂

    The fennel on the edge of the table is a fantastic idea, what a great way to add a bit of life to both the room and piece of furniture!

    I wonder how well it would work around a statement photo frame, or large mirror?

      I like the idea of a grey wall (after being inspired by Lisa Levis’s house) with the toast border. x
