Tell Me Tuesday (Wednesday)…BAM or SLAM!? Buffalo Check

SLAM! for last week’s topic, Faux Painted Headboards

The majority of you felt real headboards were the way to go, painted ones were not a good alternative.

This week, let’s talk Buffalo Check!  I think it is a wonderful pattern.   It adds a little color and pattern to a space, but is still neutral.  It can be chic or country.  Last week, I pulled it for a client as an option to re-upholster her wing chair, unfortunately she was not as nearly excited about it as I am.

Are you a fan?

  9. I big BAM with extra BAM for me! I love it. It’s a classic pattern but I the the buffalo scale can add a touch of whimsy to a room that might otherwise take itself too seriously.

  14. I L.O.V.E. IT!
    But I’m surprised at how few people know what I’m talking about~
    even in fabric stores when I ask if they carry any and where to find it in their store.

  24. Yep, it’s a classic! a Bam for me. I had picked up a few yards of a black and white buffalo check when Calico was running a sale and I’m waiting for the perfect opportunity to use it somewhere.

  28. BAM! I think in the right space it looks great. I currently have a blue buffalo check couch and chair in my living room, but it doesn’t go with the decor… it’s just what I owned!

  29. BAM! I think a touch of it here and there is great and adds a touch of masculine to a space. Loving that kitchen floor!
