Check Mate


Break up a monochroma­tic palette by dropping a bold pattern into your design. Buffalo checks, softened with floral designs, and a barn quilt painting on the mantel are both stimulatin­g and stylish. Introduce a third element that features pops of red like Tina did in her living room with her rooster figurines displayed on a step stool.

Tina paired antique corbels with floating shelves and added painted ceiling tins to cabinet doors on the wall unit in the living room.

These small details offer timeless allure without being overstated. Apothecary drawers, enamelware pitchers, vintage books, wire baskets, and other mix-and-match items complement the design.

“I like the farmhouse-cottage-vintage style because it mixes easily with industrial, traditiona­l, boho and modern styles.”
