Am a huge fan of fabric covered upholstered walls…am also a huge fan of anything in a gingham check. Imagine my delight when I found this little gem of a room…where everything from walls, to windows, to furniture is covered in a black and white gingham check. Sounds like it would be too overwhelming…but in reality it looks so cute and cozy.
Note to self (and TE)…in future, take a small room and go completely gingham style!
Design non-sequitur…found this adorable knit top and skirt by Narciso Rodriguez to match the room. Camouflage of sorts for a gingham check room!

P.S. Just realized I still haven’t shared photos from last weekend in Ojai with my guy TE. Will get to it this weekend or next week!

What a great way to make a statement! I think that part of what makes the pattern repeat so effective is the richness of the textures that interact with the crispness of the pattern. The gilt and the sisal – both the same tones, but one formal and one casual – and the texture of all the books combine to make it all work. I am drawn to the new greens that we are seeing everywhere. Isn’t is nice that they are making a comeback?
Oh, while I admit gingham check is adorable in itself and I like it in all colors, I have to say that a room full of it would be unbearable to me! I admit, it’s a matter of personal taste and beauty is subjective, but I can only tolerate it in small amounts.
love all this black and white… I have a hard time wearing any thig but and have for years … I always feel a bit off in color…
