Stripes are on-trend right now for sure, but not just in the form of clothes!~ Everything from Interiors to accessories are trending with bold stripes. An accessory with a bold stripe can bring an outfit from drab to fab. Here's a few examples I found of great use of stripes!~
Marc by Marc Jacobs Candy Stripe Cocktail Ring
Aldos Shoes "Dyle" Sandal Wedges
Bold Interiors anyone?
The use of bold color in a room with stark white walls is the way to go. Also, if you're using more than one pattern, have them be slightly different so it's not too "match-y match-y". The stripe patterns on the sofa vs. the chair are different enough but similar in color enough, to make it work.
Pops of color were added with the throw pillows, which is the best way to go about it. Along with the stark white walls, the furniture accent pieces are also white and have modern clean lines, letting the fabric stand out instead of competing with intricacies of other pieces.
