Forever Fashionable





I could never tire of the bold and classic appeal of Houndstooth. Just today, I was flipping through Maison Française, and came across this wonderful example. (though, a sneak peak graced the cover) I love how this restaurant, above, has been outfitted in chic Houndstooth chairs—perfectly paired with pink. Wouldn't it be great to have lunch with friends there, amongst design books and pretty decor? (images 01 and 02)

After seeing this place, I felt so inspired to bring a little of this fashionable pattern into my space...as I flipped the pages of the magazine, Viola! Instant inspiration followed! What to try first? A pillow, tray, wall? I'd love to know your thoughts... Are you a fan, also?

For a bit more inspiration...

* Full, beautiful drapes
* A super cozy dress
* A cute entry

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. HI Sarah
    Well I love the first 2 images. The pink does soften the look.

    For me houndstooth will always remind me of one of the finer department stores here in Sydney [their logo]. Although they have lost a bit of their grandeur in recent years ... for me it represents class and refinement.

    Have a great weekend. Julie

  2. I love houndstooth. Not sure if it looks dated to others, but I think a houndstooth suit always says style. Hmm- a tray or a pillow sounds delightful!
