Gingham may not necessarily be synonymous with “modern,” but with a keen styling eye, gingham is a great way to add a twist to a modern palette. It’s fun and whimsical, and can be easily adapted to a variety of color palettes and stylized details. Also, have you seen that drapey organza Marc Jacobs dress up there? LOVE! – Tram @ Phi-Style.com
I thought I’d challenge myself this week to make gingham modern…and yes, it can be done! There’s 2 ways to do this….either use an exaggerated scale, like as seen in the flooring of the Moooi gallery or in the gingham plates, or just use touches of gingham with lots of white.
