Gingham. I have recently discovered a soft spot for this old-fashioned fabric. It’s so sweet! And with a touch of it here and there it, this country fabric can add a dash of whimsical elegance to any room. If you’re already on board the gingham love boat, bear with me while I sermonize about this wonder fabric and pattern.
The Gingham Twist
I’m sure you’re not surprised that I tend to lean towards blue gingham, but it just seems so elegant for such a country fabric. Doesn’t it clean up well!?! You can take it to your Farmhouse or straight into your French Country style this summer. It’s just that diverse. I can’t wait to find some of this beautiful fabric. I’ll be tearing down the aisle of the men’s wear sections of every thrift store I know. Some guy’s shirt is my future pillow! But if blue isn’t your thing, try yellow, green, purple or red….
It’s Not Just For Christmas
I admit that I love gingham at Christmas. It’s such a cheerful pattern and the red and white is perfect for the holiday, but you don’t have to keep it in the attic until December! Let it shine during the summer and autumn months as well. Dish towels, place settings, dishes, tablecloths, picnic blankets, footstools you name it! Gingham will rock your world if you let it. Don’t let its boldness scare you off.
Your Grandma Knew A Thing Or Two
It’s so versatile that you can put it anywhere even a floor apparently. Keep an open mind when you’re ready to remodel, makeover or just want to add some new decor. In the larger stripes, it is perfect for furniture. So, think about gingham when you’re ready to add some freshness to your decor, you won’t regret it!
Do you have any gingham in your house? If not, it’s not too late!
