Fresh Fabrics Friday: Houndstooth

The other day Autumn over at Design Dump did a post on houndstooth where she shared some fabulous images of houndstooth in use. I LOVE houndstooth! I am a sucker for graphic, geometric patterns and houndstooth fills the bill for me, so today "FFF" will be a round up of houndstooth patterns.

As with anything, there are endless interpretations of the pattern, so that means something for everyone...

....bold and bright....

 to soft and neutral.
 A houndstooth Glen Plaid,
and a more traditional rendition.

A few artistic interpretations... from the color combo....

....to the pattern....

....to the scale.
  
And countless more....

The beauty of houndstooth is that it can work with any style, think large scale and graphic in a more contemporary space.... 

or more subtle and subdued in a traditional setting.

Houndstooth mixes well with a wide variety of fabric patterns, it can quiet and soft spoken....

...or loud and Wow!

Fun and youthful.

Monochromatic.

If you love houndstooth, then maybe instead of fabric, you could stencil your walls...
Cutting Edge Stencils

...or put a rug under foot!

What a versatile pattern, don't you think?  Have you used houndstooth in any projects lately?  Tell me about it and send me images, I would love to feature your work here on Room Rx.

In other news...we FINALLY got some snow! I know, crazy to be excited about it, but when nary an inch has fallen and it is Winter in the upper Midwest, snow is part of the landscape. Hopefully I can squeeze in a bit of time this week-end to get out and enjoy our 5 1/2 inches of fluffy stuff!

Thanks for sharing another week with me, I am grateful for your visits and dialogue.
 
Does your room need a “prescription” for a change of decor, function or design If so please contact me, I would love to help your room feel better with a Design Concept Board or a complete Room Rx.

I remember when I used to wear houndstooth blazers in London ! The bunnytooth one is an interesting version. I have not used this lately because people still see it as a more traditional pattern and are trying to modernize their spaces somewhat but this is definitely more versatile. I have just passed on the Leibster Award to you

Have a great weekend and enjoy the snow!

I LOVE houndstooth! I'm actually wearing a pretty bold yellow and gray houndstooth wool coat today :)

Have a great weekend!

Such a classic and I love all of the various images you pulled to show that it can be used in any type of style or taste. I also like how it can be young or sophisticated too. Great choice Cathy - I'll be referring back to this one again. Amber just showed an image yesterday in her "Why This Works" series that also showcased some houndstooth. Have a great weekend! It's getting colder here too.

Another one of my favorites! I'd love the pink one in jacket! Every time I see that stencil I ponder where it could work!

Heres to a cold snowy weekend! :)
