Dear C and L,

 I have been very inspired by the recent renovations you have featured on your blog, and would like to undertake a similar feat in my condo. I was especially interested in the striped accent wall in the boys’ room. I wanted to do something similar in my ensuite bathroom but I was wondering when its best to use a vertical stripe vs. a horizontal stripe. My ensuite is very, very small. What would you recommend?

From,

Hi Suey!

So nice to hear from you! Adding stripes to your bathroom is such a fun and bold way to make a statement.  C prefers horizontal stripes because it’s a lot more calming and pleasing to the eye. I love both vertical and horizontal stripes so it really depends on your preference. You can use either one, it doesn’t matter how big your space is.

Here are a couple of our favorite striped bathrooms:

Black and white stripes are always a great choice. We especially love how it makes the colors of lavender plant pop! (Photo from: www.elledecor.com)

Love,

Ah the tray, so simple yet oh so useful! This multi-purpose accessory not only holds drinks, trinkets, and other knicknacks but it helps coral things together into one cohesive look. We at the Inspiration Seekers headquaters are OBSESSED with trays, we pretty much have one on every surface! Haha!

Here are some lovely uses for the hardworking little fellow:

The rich cognac colored tray serves as a nice contrast to the stark candles and books. It also makes it easy to set aside items should the coffee table be used for other purposes. (Photo: www.thelennox.com)
