Hello Fabulistas! There are certain design combinations that always wow. One of my favorites is stripes in bathrooms. There are less opportunities to make a bathroom—especially a powder room—appear chic in a small footprint. Stripes give an easy, refined visual bumpout. Here are some of my favorite striped bathroom looks.
Chic Black and White
I’d be hard pressed to find a chicer combo than black and white. Crystal Gentilello, (co-founder of Rue Magazine), shared her home, along with this chic powder room, in an Apartment Therapy home tour. These stripes are so sophisticated for a small space!

Classic stripes don’t have to appear in black and white to lend a sophisticated air. This more-spacious and less-dramatic bath is still big on style with fresh blue stripes.

This pinstripe look is a refined slant on this striped bath motif. Like on a suit, these pinstripes step up a bathroom’s fashion. The glossy white door and fixtures make the thin white stripes pop!
I love finding unique shower designs. They even better when you paired with glass shower doors perfect for admirin! These tile mosaic bands make this shower look luxurious. And check out that shower head!

Black horizontal stripes are just as chic as vertical stripes. Kiera Kushlan, (founder of interior design firm Residents Understood), shares with Design Sponge that she felt a neglected bathroom was transformed after she painted it in thick striped bands. This just goes to show that stripes are the ultimate in chic paint makeovers!

Every day would feel like a day at the beach while getting ready in this cheery bathroom. The continued stripes in the shower makes the wall design the focus of the room.

Every other room I’ve listed so far has uniformly sized stripes in two-color combos. This one caught my eye because of its colorful, stunning style! These cheery stripes are hand painted by Deirdre Newman for a custom, unique look.

Classic Blue and White
Mosaic tile can do so much for a space’s design. But, painted tile can also work wonders! This bathroom at Tangier’s Le Salon Bleu has a timeless, breezy look. It would be lovely in a country or beach home!
Nothing finishes off the look of an elegant room quite like some wainscoting. This is another fabulous example of stripes with tile. But it doesn’t stop on the walls! I love that the design continues on to the floor. That’s what I call some pattern play!
