It’s time to throw open the windows and doors to let in the summer breezes while we move outdoors to enjoy warm temperatures and long summer days. And a breezy outdoor space naturally seems to call for the classic stripe.
In ocean colours ranging from cobalt blue to pale sea glass and in fruity colours from lemon yellow to watermelon pink, stripes are the perfect pattern for a chic summer backdrop. Take your cue from the iconic yellow and white towels used at the famed Hotel Il Pellicano in Italy or a quintessentially English beach hut often decked out in nautical blue and white. Introduce stripes in awnings or umbrellas, outdoor furniture, the tented ceiling of a pool pavilion or simply on towels drying in the sun after a day spent at the beach.
