Feeling Blue Jack Fhillips of Jack Fhillips Design used a striped wallpaper to wake up a sleeping space in this oceanfront John’s Island home. “I’m always inspired by the elements outside coming in, which is why I have a tendency to do a lot of blue and white down here,” Fhillips says. “In this room, the stripes of the Ralph Lauren paper were used to tighten up a large space with a lot of weird angles. While the room is a bit bold, it doesn’t keep you from sleeping at night. I think the semi-traditional British colonial feel of the furniture helps tone the stripes down.” West Palm Beach (561-659-4459,

You can take a stripe and mix it with a floral or another geometric and, if the scale is correct, it works. Remember to counterbalance: If you have a small stripe you should use a large floral or if you have a large stripe, opt for a smaller floral print.” —Jack Fhillips
