{ Crazy for Gingham }

I think I have finally made a decision about my dining room. (you can see more of my dining room here...)

Although I love my room, it needs a little punch.
So, I've decided on gingham. Large, black, gingham. Wahoo
Here are the inspiration photos that led me to this decision...

I love how this grass green looks against the walls, so I'll be painting the wainscoting green. Goodbye boring white!


  1. I love anything gingham, so I think that was a great choice:)

  2. I am a huge fan as well, so fresh and cheerful...how could one not be drawn to it?

  3. I can't wait to see it! That will be so fun! One of my friends has a pink and cream gingham dining room. I took some pics at one of my baby showers a couple of years ago here, http://marcusanddina.blogspot.com/2010/06/baby-showersthe-final-chapter.html

    Good luck!

  4. Those rooms scream "Fresh!" Lovely designs that are simple yet they have an element of summery freshness about them!

  5. Love these idea! Where do you flea market?

  6. Love the Gingham, looks great and the color is amazingly well done. Interior painting is difficult with these colors but it was well matched and done.
