Simple and intricate: red and white swirls. (image via TableTalkAtLarrys)
Red and white stripes almost always make me think of peppermints! Candy canes, round mints, and bold swirls. Red and white is a common pairing that can be strikingly modern or unquestioningly feminine. It can be nostalgic, current, or juvenile, and it’s all about how you incorporate it.
I think that often times the best way to incorporate red and white stripes into your home is in small doses. Just a hint of the peppermint motif is exciting and fresh…and doesn’t make every day feel like December.
