Buffalo Check


I came about thisclose to having the chair in Elliot's room upholstered in a buffalo check. I wimped out and went with linen in the end (it's finally coming back from the upholsterer today!), and now I'm seeing buffalo check all over the place.


At Simply Seleta.


And Amy Meier. PS you are all reading Amy Meier, right? Okay good.

I wondered what you ended up going with... I knew you loved those chairs in Cottage Living!

Dina said...

Can't decide if I like that big of a check or not, but I sure have loved those CL chairs! I can't wait to see the nursery, will we get some photos? Congrats again mommy!

Congratulations on the arrival of Elliot Claire! She's beautiful & I love her name.

You know a buffalo check pillow would look great against your new linen chairs. I'm sure your choice of linen will be a long lasting one.

That CL image has long been one of my faves and I've ALWAYS wanted buffalo check chairs ... someday. Both ways would be gorgeous!

Love a buffalo check and you could probably still work it in with your linen. I have the same image as your first one - I like how the home offices are together but separate! Have fun with your nursery - I remember what fun it was to design ours.

Ashley said...

Please show us the "afters" of the nursery! I'm sure it is very inspiring!

I love the buffalo check pattern, I'm sure you can find a way to add it the nursery, pillow?

Rachel said...

That first photo from CL is one of my faves (I really miss CL, still!).
I'm sure your nursery will turn out super cute, buffalo check or not.
(Wouldn't it be nice, though,to have a bigger house with more rooms in it to decorate??? I often think that - there are just too many cool things out there, and they don't all fit into my house!) ;-)

I love the buffalo check! And you're right it showing up everywhere. Maybe I should cover my soon to be ottoman in it.
