Say it with Stripes
There’s something about stripes that makes me immediately think of the French Riviera. Maybe it’s the association with those glamorous striped umbrellas adorning the beaches in front of all the best hotels. Or maybe it harks back to the Riviera’s more humble beginnings as a string of fishing villages and the striped knits of the fishermen - a look famously borrowed by Chanel. Whatever the reason, it’s a pattern that is endlessly chic and adaptable, both for your wardrobe and for decorating your home inside and out. Blue and white stripes are naturally the order of the day with their instant association with the coast, offering the promise of endless summers. What could beat blue and white for freshness and vivacity? Red and white stripes also work wonderfully well, adding warmth and drama.
