If your interior design sensibility makes room for both casual but also eclectic, trendy but also classic, and sleek but also quirky, then you’ll want to try out this season’s layering stripes trend. It’s exactly what it sounds like: using multiple different striped fabrics layered one on top of the other. It’s like a more chilled-out version of the clashing patterns trend, and it’s so easy to do. Check out these examples to get inspired for how you can incorporate this trend into your home.


Blue and white are a classic choice for stripes, offering a classic, nautical look. This bed design plays with scale, incorporating thin, narrow stripes on the bedspread with an oversized stripe on the pillow.


For a bit of a more eclectic look, this design combines a classic black and white block striped wallpaper with a unique, textured, colorful striped armchair.

Kid’s Room

If you’re decorating a kid’s room and want a look that is young but not too childish, the layered stripes trend is perfect, offering a balance between fun and tasteful.
