Hooked on Horizontal Stripes

Thanks to a twenty-four hour stomach bug and a marathon of episodes on the E channel, I am kind of embarrassed to admit that I'm hooked on watching Khloe and Lamar.  Kloe Kardashian's California home is fabulous, from the chocolate tiles on her fireplaces to the chevron pattern chair in her office.  This truly is an illness.  I can't watch television or movies without seeing all the design details.   Seriously though, watch it. You'll love her kitchen and want to run out and stain your kitchen cabinets espresso....I just might.  I especially love the black chocolate and white horizontal striped wall in her breakfast nook.  I am madly in love with horizontal stripes in decor.  We just designed and installed a gray and cream horizontal stripe drapery paired with a gauzy sparkle linen sheer in a Master Bath we had designed for a client.  A horizontal stripe is unexpected and adds style and drama to a space.
