If you’ve been following the blog for awhile, then you know I LOVE plaid and checks. Remember the buffalo check wall? Yeah, I love them that much. 😉 Often times this print is associated with fall and Christmas time, but good news! Checks are making a comeback and finding their way into every season. When choosing to decorate with this timeless print, remember that it is best in small doses, or if you are thinking about going bold with a wallpaper, use it in a small room like a powder bath or on an accent wall.
This pretty little check bathroom by Caitlin Wilson Design is balanced by lots of white cabinets, trim and flooring, so the print doesn’t make you crazy. What a fun surprise when you open that door!
Pretty in pink. Buffalo check shows it’s softer side in this pretty little girl’s room by Studio McGee. The trim on the white duvet cover mimics the larger pattern in the pillow. A perfect subtle use of this otherwise bold pattern.
Kate Marker Interiors shows us how to make buffalo check look sophisticated and chic with these pale blue curtains that she added to the dining room windows.
Jillian Harris decked out this little boy’s bunk room with navy blue duvet covers that add a playful and bit of a nautical feel to the otherwise all white room.
The simple addition of a black and white check rug in an office, like this one that Emily Henderson added to this room, adds a fun, but not overwhelming pop of pattern to a room that is usually strictly business.
Florals and checks are a popular combination, and they just look too cute in this darling nursery that Monika Hibbs decked out for her daughter.
