Going Gingham

October 3, 2013 at 10:00 AM 5 comments

I don’t know if it’s the fall calling my name or my inner preppy, but every year, around this time, I get upset that I don’t have any gingham in my house…not a single lick of it.  I want to remedy this situation ASAP.

One spot that feels gingham appropriate to me is up our front stairwell that I keep claiming I’m going to decorate.  It would feel so cozy and let’s be honest, San Francisco is cold with the fog, with gingham wallpaper.  I recently got this sample from spoonflower for removable wallpaper.

I think the brown is too strong but a grey or mushroom would work out perfectly.

Graham isn’t fully on board, so let’s let Pinterest do the convincing…

    I was never a huge fan of gingham but I love chunky gingham print! Ever since I got my husband a chunky brown and white shirt I was in love! I think it kind of has a modern but classic vibe to it! I would especially love it in a boys room or man cave!!

    Great post

    Kate I think strong colors don’t work. It would have to be a very muted, light color. Love, Brian

    If Graham needs some convincing, have him email me. I think the grey or a soft mushroom color would be spot on.
