We're really into bold prints and patterns lately because they're so daring and often unexpected. We really love the look of surprising elements so we're obviously fans of houndstooth in the home, it's a pattern that is more often than not seen in clothing and not necessarily for homegoods.
Houndstooth is mostly recognized as a throwback pattern that I associate with bombshells from yesteryear. But maybe we can associate it with bombshell homes that inspire all of us to create our own awesome spaces.
Houndstooth has enough of an impact as a pattern to make waves in a room without being too overwhelming. Obviously the eye will go straight to the houndstooth but that doesn't have to be a bad thing. Get a killer houndstooth rug for the living room, a throw for the nursery or even reupholster your sofa. You can get as daring or a subtle as you want and the houndstooth will always speak for itself.
