hammam stripes

by Grace Bonney

I think at this point it goes without saying that stripes are pretty much my favorite design detail. Ever. Of all time. I even considered getting a striped tattoo at one point (Don’t panic, Mom. I didn’t do it.), before realizing it would end up looking like a barcode rather than a pretty group of stripes. In summary: I. Love. Stripes. So when Amy sent over these pretty ($9) from West Elm, I had to stop myself from jumping on the subway to pick up a set from their Brooklyn store. Even though there’s a round of Kleenex commercials trying to convince people to use disposable paper towels every time they wash their face (what?) in the bathroom, I’ll always prefer cloth towels, and these striped beauties just shot to the top of my wishlist. to check them out online or pick up a set for your bathroom. Hooray for stripes! xo, grace

If you want to further realize my your stripe fantasy, West Elm has some other affordable stripes on the market to complete the look:

, $39 (I just ordered this, high five!)

, $47+

, $8

Who doesn’t love a zigzag? This bath mat would be fun with the gray-striped shower curtain above. $24 .
