If we were playing a word association game about patterns, “picnic” would be the first thing I’d pair with “red gingham.” (Closely followed by “vintage apron.”) There’s something incredibly homey about the pattern, which this sweet found object collage by Mandy Lynne Design captures so well.

I’d never considered taking the pattern from picnic table to focal point until I saw this amazing living room. It takes the gingham wallpaper often associated with, say, ’80s country decor and ornamental chickens squarely into this century by pairing it with eclectic accents like the hand-carved mantel and original artwork. The incredible floral rug makes the perfect visual counterpoint.
