I love the crisp classic look of awning stripes. They work their magic both inside and outside. My favorites are the awning stripes featuring a white with another color.
Whether used vertically or horizontally the awning stripe defines a space like no other accent fabric.
Awnings began to appear on the fronts of American shops in the 19th century. This allowed for window shopping even on rainy days and protected window displays from fading.
What a beautiful porch! Notice even the shadows cast through the ballister looks like awning stripe.
