Spring Decorating Tip 2

Shakers chose to wear checks as a reflection of their simple, orderly life. But in decorating, checks are considered dignified, versatile and sophisticated, whether they are bold or demure prints.

Be feminine with checks that are delicate in nature, like in gingham.

Be classic with broken checks, say from a houndstooth pattern.

Go tartan for that British look.

Small checked patterns are great for chairs and look great beside a solid fabric on a sofa.
