Hello friends and family, busy with a mountain of admin, so I have a guest blogger today, Kirsten and Susi from Design Shuffle is filling in for me. The post is on houndstooth, a smart and sophisticated  pattern, I like the pink with the black and white, which do you like?

Hi, everyone, Iím Susi and I write as a guest blogger for Design Shuffle, a very cool site dedicated to interior design. Design professionals and design lovers can share their projects and find inspiration in the huge database of design pics.  Sharing ideas is one of my favorite things about visiting blogs and guest blogging.  There are so many amazing ideas out there!  One decorating trend I'm loving right now is houndstooth dÈcor.  Houndstooth is a classic pattern for clothing that comes from menswear.  It is traditionally black and white, but can be found in other great color combinations.  Here are some of my favorite houndstooth dÈcor accents. Hope you enjoy!

Houndstooth Living Room Design

Houndstooth adds a classic touch to a room when used as a decorative accent.  Houndstooth chairs add a graphic black and white pop to this moody library.

Black and White Houndstooth Design

Love the black and white houndstooth on the sofa in this black and white living room. The graphic pattern adds some punch to the mostly white room.

Houndstooth Living Room Design

Love the houndstooth upholstery on this chaise done in mustard yellow and cream. It is gorgeous when paired with the orange and cream herringbone on the wall.  Love traditional menswear patterns used in dÈcor.

Fall Houndstooth Design

Brown and cream houndstooth has a warm, comfortable feeling to it.  Use this houndstooth as upholstery, for pillows and area rugs. Great for fall decorating ideas.

Houndstooth Table Design

A bit of houndstooth fabric on the backs of these dining chairs gives an added touch of tailored style to this navy dining room.  Love the blue and white color in the houndstooth pattern. And the pops of color in the light fixture--so perfect!

Houndstooth Chair Design

Gorgeous tonal houndstooth makes great upholstery for a traditional chair.  Houndstooth can be used in modern or traditional dÈcor given its graphic pattern.

Houndstooth Feminine Design

Houndstooth can even work in a very girly bedroom design. This pink and white houndstooth rug works with the other strong patterns in the space. Pink houndstooth, who knew?

Houndstooth Wallpaper Design

Love the subtle houndstooth pattern on the walls of this nursery. Use a stencil and paint or find a houndstooth wallpaper to achieve this look. [ Images 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 ]
