Growing up, I used to love going to my grandparents house to eat ice cream (and just hang out, of course). My grandfather was a huge fan of sweets, and he loved pink, white, and brown striped Neapolitan ice cream. They ALWAYS had some. I also remember these fondly, not necessarily for the taste but because they were so pretty:
Those wide stripes of strawberry, vanilla and chocolate: it’s like childhood wrapped up in a neat little rectangle! It would be fairly easy to translate this color combination into a room, or at least bring the hues into a space as a subtle reference. The challenge is in accomplishing this without being too feminine, juvenile, or silly looking. I think the choices below do the trick in terms of bringing some Neapolitan flavor into a home. I especially love the NeoAbe print from Etsy seller JustinRichele, and I like how the seemingly solid colored rug catches you off guard when you look closely (it’s a mix of all three shades that comprise this lovely combo). …and the dress…oh, the dress!
Enjoy taking a look, and go get yourself a big bowl of ice cream when you’re done!
