Lines create boundaries, but when you apply them to your home, they create character and dimension and are a way to decorate outside the normal, safe constraints of interior design. And that is something many of our renovation projects need to encapsulate: recreating our home to carry a fun hint of character, dimension and stripes.
Learning to be a responsible and licensed driver is not a task to undertake in one night. You learn everything from a cyclists hand signals to the legal drinking intake to still be permitted to drive. You learn what lights signify in the dash of your car and sometimes through textbook theology you learn how to change a tire.
But most importantly you learn what the stripes on the road translate to all the drivers. Double yellow, do not cross, one solid yellow, one yellow dash, you can pass if the dash is on your side. White on the outside signifies the end of your road, horizontal white, the pedestrian’s right of way. Diagonal white or yellow, DO NOT DRIVE. I could go on with the yellow and white dashed and solid combinations of horizontal, vertical and diagonal, but really these stripes have no place in your home.
The stripes of your home, however, do matter so today we’ll accelerate headlong into the traffic of designing your home stripes and how they can represent your room and the language they speak to us interior drivers.
