Gigantic Gingham Glory

There's something about gingham, buffalo checks, call-them-what-you-will that reels me in every single time in children's bedrooms. They're eye-catching, statement-yielding but rarely seem over-bearing.

Take a look at these inspiration destinations and try and tell me you're not tempted....





My favourite designs for children's bedrooms are the bigger, bolder checks - steer clear of anything fussy for the Modern Country feel.

There are few easier ways to add a flourish of Country to your child's bedroom than gingham bedding. You can actually go fairly bare with the rest of the scheme, if you're a fan of Modern children's bedroom schemes but add warmth with those big ol' checks.

wide board + batten panels plus chunky crown moulding on ceiling...like this warm grey paint color, too.

White ceiling, subtle grey green walls, taupe and white check bed linen, black & white photos (of the area?) - casual, lived-in look

Quiet City Bedroom  --  I am discovering I really love guest bedrooms where a twin bed is in a tiny, cozy nook with light wall color to add freshness and airy space.

Rethink space, especially in large homes!  Make those open landing spaces for spare bed setups!  Save spare bedrooms for office, gym, play or craft rooms.
