A striped rug in coastal home decor is like the sand to the beach. It’s a coastal home decor piece that will always be found in coastal homes, just like sand will always be found at the beach. No one will ever argue the fact that stripes are a part of coastal home decor. It’s a great design piece that’s versatility and flare has cemented it’s place in the coastal design style. Here are 3 reasons why we believe that:
1. Size Options
When it comes to rugs, size matters. Literally. You need to know the measurements of the space you plan on laying your rug down. An area rug is not going to fit in your hallway. An extreme example, but you get it. You need to know the length and size of the space for potential rug options. Is this a given for all rugs and not just striped rugs for coastal homes? Yes, we won’t argue that, but it’s a reason we had to touch on.
2. Pattern Play
The striped pattern is a classic pattern. Home decor is not the only place you will find stripes. It’s because the pattern invokes a sense of fun while having an affect on the eyes. Long lines can trick the eye into making it seem like a space is longer or wider. Use thin stripes to lead the eye throughout the space or lay down a striped rug with thicker, larger stripes to bring a full feel to the space. This is where the stripe pattern shines. It offers much more than just a quirky, playful pattern.
3. Color Choices
A blue and white striped rug is a coastal home essential. The strong blues paired with the creamy whites leaves an impression in homes. Blue and white hues are not the only colors that have an affect on a space. The striped rug helps colors make a lasting, striking statement in a coastal home. On the other end, striped rugs with subtle colors can achieve the exact opposite affect. They can compliment and blend into a space to add the finishing touches.
If you want visual proof we got that too. Check out some of these coastal homes that use striped rugs to their full potential in the space. If you’re in the market for a striped rug or two for your home, you can find a few in the Tuvalu Home Store.

This week our Tuva-Luv comes from Laurie! One of her store favorites is the John Lennon Sign Art! This brand new art print looks like a page from a vintage book. Quote by John Lennon reads: He said, “Love is like a precious plant. You can’t just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it’s going to get on by itself. You’ve got to keep on watering it. You’ve got to really look after it and nurture it.” Add this lovely quote to your home! Get a closer look at the John Lennon Sign Art!
