One slick optical trick stripes can perform is to define a particular area in a room.

In this living room from the 60s, for example, stripes created an entryway where there wasn’t one before.

Emphatic black-and-white striped wallpaper was used on the wall adjacent to the front door (while the other walls were left white).

Furthering the illusion that the decorators had created an entry hall out of a plain wall was made possible with the use of a cushion-laden low bench, and a tall plant stand overflowing with fern.
