Buffalo check. Why it is good to embrace a fad every now and then. Paint is just paint, so if there is a trend that you can paint on to your walls or furniture, I say go for it. If you don’t like it in a year from now just paint it again! Paint is like the perfect relationship, it gives you all the thrills at first but if you change your mind you can dump it, and with out much effort move on to the next (says the married women who has no idea what dating is actually like anymore). You get the idea right? You can change it, so don’t be afraid to try it! Ok now that we have over analyzed it lets talk about one of my new favorite patterns, BUFFALO CHECK.

Buffalo check seems to add the perfect amount of character to any space while also being uber stylish. In my clients nursery we went with a bold version of buffalo check in these great blue gray colors. The dark color was Behr Starless night and the mediuim blue was Behr forever denim> for the lightest color we used behr forever denim at 75%>
I found the tutorial on how to accomplish this look over on classy clutter. I have painted stripes in clients homes for years now, so this process was very familiar to me and something I was comfortable trying. If you want to try this yourself go check out there site for detailes here. Nurseries are by far some of my favorite rooms to decorate because you ultimately have so much freedom. You can really use your creativity and you don’t have to be afraid of over doing it because it is a BABIES ROOM! The more bold and whimsical the better for their growth and development!
In my daughters room I decided this bedding from ikea would be the perfect way to soften up her room and add some visual interest.
In my opinion buffalo check is the perfect pattern to add to any space. Her room has this gorgeous vintage, bed frame that I got from my girl the junk joint.
Although the paint color is not my all time favorite, I did not want to lose that natural chippy element, so I left it (for now). Pinks in the same color family, soften the rustic look of the bed and wooden shelf hanging above her metal desk.
The gray and white buffalo check adds soft pattern and layers perfectly with her vintage throw I found at merchant square. I have changed her room a million times but this is my fave so far!
So wether it be an accent wall or fabrics don’t be afraid to try something new and exiting in your home! What is the point of life anyway, if you are not surrounded by the things that you love!
