A Community For People Who Buy, Sell or Collect Antiques, Collectibles and Art

I don't know about you, but nothing speaks of vintage cottage more than a check pattern fabric! Either on the window coverings or the furniture or just a touch with a throw pillow or tablecloth.

And....it can be gingham check, or buffalo check or plaid check...all lend the same homey, "cottagy" feel.

It can grace the kitchen, the bedroom, the bathroom or even the front porch.

The lovely fabric can be in any color to do it's magic: red/white, blue/white, green/white, black/white, pink/white and many more blends of color.


Check...Mate offers lots more decor ideas with 'Cottage' checks!

What's your favorite?

Could add these gingham cuties around to clip dish cloths or recipe cards and create a wonderful cottage feel!

This vignette from Bellamere Cottage boasts blue/white check and the entire bedroom make over is so fun to read about!

If ever checks makes a vintage cottage pop...this idea does! Soooooo cute!

Even the most rustic of cottages is brought to a new level with red and white gingham curtains! Don't you agree?

In this article in Old House Online: Selecting Curtains For Your Period Kitchen - A portfolio of simple, effective window treatments that add color and style in the hardest-working room, by Brian D. Coleman, this adorable vintage kitchen tea towel was used AND a red/white check tablecloth on the table in the 1940's period kitchen.

This image shows the 'magic' of adding a check fabric detail in your decor and suddenly it's vintage cottage!
