If you associate check patterns with country, you’d be correct, but that’s not the only decorating style where they can be used successfully. Checks come in all sizes and colors, and depending on their application and the other elements in the room, they might pull together a modern, traditional, or eclectic design.
I’m a fan of checks when paired with other patterns, or if they’re bold and really make a statement. Let’s take a peek at some checks in bedrooms. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised how chic checks can be!
This Alabama bedroom is delightful, isn’t it? The gingham check on the window valances and footstools offers the right amount of structure. This room shows us how to mix the modern and traditional. I adore everything about this tailored bedroom.
Sweet and delicate, this Cotswold Manor juvenile bedroom feels feminine with its pink, white, and beige color scheme. The check complements the floral perfectly.
An impressive example of a modern country bedroom, this room has only the bare essentials, yet there’s something incredibly soothing about it. The large check on the bed covering looks terrific with the muted chevron on the accent pillows.
A check area rug isn’t the most obvious choice for a floor covering, but I believe it helps complete this bedroom. The red lacquered door and the quilt at the foot of the bed help tie everything together.
Another modern country home boasts a charming boy’s room with a check on the walls. The wall covering creates an ideal backdrop for the simple furnishings and accessories.
Can’t find the check? This cozy bedroom has subtle check patterns in the shams and the textured matelassé coverlet. The faux rabbit, timber stools and artwork above the bed add surprise to what would otherwise be a pretty dull space. I think of this room as funky yet rustic.
