Decorating With Checks

2.09.2014

I love checks. Big buffalo checks or even the smaller gingham check. I love them in neutrals and I love them in vibrant colors. Here are some examples.

Do you have checks in your home?

Enjoy your Sunday!

  5. Oh my word! I love that green checked chair. The red checks in your home and in that cute bathroom are adorable.
    I have a few red checked pillows but that's about it for now. Thanks for the inspiration.

  6. I LOVE checks. I would have them in every room if I could. They are timeless, go with any other stripe, plaid, print, and are so inviting. Did I say I LOVE them???

  7. Oh yes! Totally addicted to them here. I don't think there is a room here that doesn't have at least a small touch of them. I am trying so very hard to NOT put them in the new room over the garage. And you know I LOVE all of yours. :)

  10. I do have checks and love them. I really like that green and white checked chair. I have a few accent chairs sitting around here and there or in storage and I am wondering what the bid would be to have one done in that fabric or one similar. I think I will check into that.

    I am loving your farmhouse table. Fantabulous!

  14. I think checks are classic and can be used in any design, whether on the more formal side as the AD pic or the casual as in the fabulous Francie Hargrove pic…and of course love your rooms with them!!

  25. I LOVE checks. Always have, always will. In fact, just now contemplating them on host chairs in the dining room. They are truly timeless and classic. The blue bedroom with the wood twin beds nearly made me stop breathing. Seriously.

  28. I love checks, too, Kim. I used to have them in my last house -but none here. I favor the bigger ones and don't care too much for gingham unless it is on a Wizard of Oz Dorothy costume. xo Diana

  32. Lovely post, Kim. I always worry when I see pics of birds' nests in people's houses. Google collecting bird nests and you'll see what I mean! Though I love the look.

  33. I love checks too! Your new red buffalo check curtains are so bright and cheery!

  34. When you love red and white, chances are you love this duo in checks, too! So, yes, I ADORE checks and have them on two sets of curtains, accent pillows, patchwork blocks, vases and cutlery, too! Love the first photo of the green and white checkered chair and the whole room; so FRESH and clean! Kim, you know that your guest room is one of my favourite spaces in the blogosphere!:-D

  35. Checks and I go waaaaaay back! Remember when hunter green was the color of the 80s? I had checked curtains and a window seat cushion in my kitchen then. Love all of your inspiration photos, including yours! If I could find that gorgeous green fabric in the first photo, I'd have to use it somewhere! :)

  41. Checks work especially well in the French country or country cottage look as your selected photos show so well.
