Gingham is the smile-inducing print taking over our Instagram feeds. Here are 11 ways to get the look for yourself.
While gingham may feel like a traditionally summery print, we’d like to argue that there’s always a place for this timeless pattern, whatever the weather.
In fact, the Instagram crowd has been serving up some inspiring gingham-focused decor at the moment (such as Michelle Driscoll’s gingham tablecloth pictured below), which work wonderfully well for the winter season.
This cheerful print adds a bit of pizzazz to a room that needs a jolt of colour or pattern, and it looks great when layered with different textiles to create a busy clash.
Whether you fancy keeping your colour palettes neutral or adding a splash of sunshine with bright hues, this gingham homeware edit is sure to make you smile.
