Newark, NJ – In Thibaut’s “Stripe Resource II” and “Stripe Resource III” wallpaper collection there are a wide variety of looks accomplished with stripes—everything from basic ticking patterns to those with more ornate damask overlays. Many patterns are illustrated to look and feel as if they were printed on fabric grounds such as woven cotton, linen, and silk. There are also designs resembling leathery elephant hide, delicate lace, and twilled herringbone. Some have sheer washed effects while others have more mottled painterly appearances. Whether light and airy, or heavy and more masculine; narrow or wide; these stripe designs with their clean lines provide a sophisticated, tailored appearance ideal for either casual or formal settings.
Besides the interesting patterns, rich colors in the collection liven up plain, ordinary walls, and the designs coordinate readily with other fabrics and wallpapers in the home. The earthy palette includes wheat, eggplant, coral, coffee, sage, moss green, and steel blue, while a brighter palette incorporates clean green, lavender, pink, soft yellow, Chinese red, celery and chambray. Hints of metallic gold, copper and taupe can be found in many designs. These accents add a flattering touch as they pick up on faucets, light fixtures, and drapery or cabinetry hardware in the room.
“Stripe Resource” and other Thibaut collections are available through interior designers and fine wallcovering and decorating stores. For the names of local dealers, call 800-223-0704.
