Straight from the runways to your home, the gingham craze is hot.  This classic check pattern has been a part of interior design for years, gracing homespun and elegant interiors alike.  Gingham can be used in a variety of interiors and with other patterns for a crisp look this spring.  Go for all-over gingham or mix it with floral patterns.

Use fresh colors of gingham to bring a bright new look to interiors.  Spring greens, yellows and blues enliven a space.  Vibrant red gingham looks great in the kitchen, especially when paired with red accents.  Classic and fresh, try some gingham in your home this spring.

Botanicals truly bring nature to your interiors and freshen up a space for spring.  Prints, fabrics and live potted plants bring the outdoors in and provide a bright spot to any room in the home.  The beautiful green symmetry of ferns look great framed or on upholstery.
