Funny I was never a huge check kind of girl. But somehow over the years, they have really grown on me. I mean REALLY grown on me. Thanks Charles Faudree and Bunny and Carolyn and countless other talented designers who have made me a convert. I think the first time I fell in love with a room was one in Charles's books...of a gorgeous room filled with buffalo checked covered furniture. It was so charming, warm yet sophisticated, my favorite look.
Since then I an consistently drawn to the versatile, always elegant yet inviting look of buffalo checks. There are so many ways to use them, in all the many colors.....how about you? Do you like them? Have you decorated with them? Would you? I used a smaller buffalo check in my back powder room and have a chair in my living room in buffalo check silk. Today's a tribute to this wonderful print.......what do you think? Let me know! Feast your eyes on these........
Charm galore! Patricia Fisher designed this wondeful breakfast setting
How charming is this kitchen? Its a love for me!
Love Joy Tribaut's take on buffalo checks...so fresh and sophisticated!
Even in a most formal room such as this one in a Maurice Fatio home, the mini check is very much at home!

Something about crisp white with the blue and white buffalo check is so fresh!
