We all know stripes are good at creating visual illusions that trick the eye. The same goes for striped wallpaper, which can make your room appear taller or longer, depending on what you require. Opt for vertical stripes in rooms with low ceilings to open up your space or horizontal stripes for where you need to add depth to your space. Choose a neutral option such as grey striped wallpaper to allow you to bring in a variety of colour with furnishings and accessories. Or if you're feeling bold, how about tartan wallpaper for a feature wall that'll create a truly elegant, timeless effect when teamed with a simple colour palette. The options are endless.
