Decorate With Buffalo Checks For Charming Interiors

Do you remember the line from the old song, Home On the Range, that says "Oh Give Me A Home Where The Buffalo Roam" ? My advise is to allow buffalo check pattern some room to roam  in your interiors.

Buffalo Check has a charming, allover check pattern which offers the comforting allure of plaid and a stylish visual texture. Classic and comforting, these checkered prints also transition easily between styles. A red plaid sofa would look just as at home in a traditional setting as it does in a chic, contemporary space. It is equally at home in French country decor.

 So whether your tastes run toward modern or classic, there's sure to be a plaid to suit your style — even if that style changes over time.
Here are some  inspiring ways to work it into your home

Pattern is the best way to take your home decorating up a notch. ... the large buffalo check on the chair back and the French country floral make this a lovely space.

This sweetly checked pattern will bring a bit of country warmth to your home.

If you'd like to decorate your family room in lodge style,the first fabric that comes to mind for many people is a large-scale buffalo plaid.

These buffalo checked slip covers are an absolutely delightful way to decorate your dining room.

Informal buffalo-check fabric on the bench tones down the formality of the ornate French bed. That kind of juxtaposition puts pizzazz in a room's decor.

Covered in a classic blue-and-white buffalo check, these chairs are relaxed and timeless.

Brown and white buffalo checks coupled with transfer ware make this a wonderfully cozy space.

Don't you love this bold plaid settee in this soft and feminine room?


I'm obsessed with antique chairs and this one is fabulous covered in yellow and white buffalo checks.


What can I say.......lovely combination of plaid and toile de jouy.

Green and cream  creates a softer look for the plaid.

Yet here on the walls it presents a bolder look.

Check out the ceiling!! Pardon the pun.

A lovely pattern combination.

The pink plaid makes this room so bright and cheerful.

I love the fresh, clean look of this aqua buffalo-check.

Plaid can be bold but it can also be soft and quiet, as this dining room reveals.
