Adding buffalo check decor to your home can instantly create a cozy farmhouse feeling. The buffalo check trend also known as buffalo plaid has been around for a while, but that does not mean it is going anywhere anytime soon.
Buffalo check gives your home a cozy rustic charm throughout the year, but it especially shines in the fall and winter. This classic pattern has always been a major part of a farmhouse style decor, mostly found in the little accents, a cushion on a sofa, a table runner, or a throw blanket over the end of a bed. But for those who aren’t patterned shy, it can go as big as adding a whole buffalo check wall to your room. You can either achieve this by using buffalo check wallpaper or if you are really into DIY the same effect can be accomplished by painting overlapping stripes with painter’s tape.
Another great idea is adding a buffalo check tile pattern or using it on furniture upholstery. No matter if you use it sparingly or go big by adding a whole buffalo check wall to your room, it still makes a powerful statement because of the contrast that the pattern creates.
