Check, vichy, some even say gingham...whatever you might call this pattern...I like. A nice check on the fashion front does it for me every time. I own quite a few checkered blouses and whenever I see a guy wearing a check shirt or tie...I must comment. I love to see people wearing a delicate check! Can't get enough of this pattern. Lately, in home decor, I have been coming across vichy (the French call it vichy) quite a bit too and I am liking!
Yesterday, I was on the website of one of our new COCOCOZY home furnishings collection retailers based in Maryland, The Kellogg Collection (they bought quite a few lovely COCOCOZY pillows from us at market in early February), and I noticed they sell a ton of checkered print pillows. I've also noticed quite a few check patterned home furnishing accessories in my travels out and about.
You might associate this pattern with a country styled home but it can be quite modern too. I think it is timeless and can blend with most any style of design.
I love a crisp check. What do you think? Take a look!
What do you think? Do you like the idea of using checkered fabric on walls, upholstered furniture, flooring or more? Or, would you rather just stick to solids? Please do tell.
