Adairs chatted with their expert in-house designers to learn how to make checkerboard designs work for you. Keep reading to find out what they had to say…
This season it is all about checks – big ones, small ones, ones as big as your bed. The classic style is enjoying a resurgence at the moment, but we don’t think the pattern ever really fell off the grid. The timeless print can be styled to suit any home.
The best thing about checks is their versatility. They come in all sizes and colours – classic black and white, jumbo rows with textured squares, multicoloured stripes weaving a gingham pattern. It’s easy to find a style that suits you!
If you’re like us – obsessed with checks – then we say embrace it! Go all out with the trend, and layer checks on top of each other. This works especially well with bedlinen. Choose a tight, small scale gingham design for your sheets in colours that blend with your bedroom décor. Top that off with a quilt cover in a bold, oversize check.
One of the most on-trend ways to incorporate checks into your home is by matching the pattern with something totally different! Play it (slightly) safer with a stripe in a contrasting colour, or absolutely go for it with a modern floral.
Keep in mind the scale of the prints. Pair a smaller check with a ditsy floral design, or larger checks with a thicker, bold stripe. Make sure the look feels cohesive by matching a colour through the prints.
