I love these looks don’t you?  Time to rethink your definition of a stripe.  Stripes can be so much more than two colors, even and straight.  These garments use stripes to contour the body, create interesting shapes and create a sense of movement.  These gorgeous pieces for home accomplish the same by keeping your eye moving.  Somehow they are bold and subtle at the same time – that perfect mix of unbalanced, balance.  Love!

We love that earthy, ranch southwestern feeling.  It is warm and inviting and somehow always feels very familiar.  This take on stripes goes far beyond the poncho look.  These feel fresh and new and really convey that handmade organic feeling.  What is great about pieces like this is that you don’t have to go full on ranch hand to make a bit of a statement.  All of these would work as interesting accents in a variety of styles including contemporary and more modern spaces.
