Check Check Check!

By Christa Terry

gingham ceiling

Blue gingham on the ceiling? Zowie! A wallpapered ceiling provides the foil for the stenciled painted floor below in this kitchen featured in Coastal Living.

Blue gingham is used a bit more traditionally in this French country dining room found on Vintage Amethyst. It’s a little overwhelmingly country-country-country for my tastes, but I’m loving the distressed dining table paired with the gingham.

Upholstered headboards and footboards rock my world, if only because I grew up with one. Blue gingham makes this bed the focal point of the space in this bedroom from Belle Maison.

Finally, note that loving blue gingham doesn’t have to mean investing in new wallpaper or buying a new bed. These blue gingham plates from La Plates feature pretty monograms and won’t cost an arm and a leg.

    I’m not generally a fan of this pattern or wallpaper, but I love the idea of putting a dominant pattern on the ceiling!
