Adding a fun new pattern to your home is a great way to spice up your decor and elevate your space without changing an entire room. Finding a new print can be intimidating with so many fun ones out there to choose so we want to save you some time and suggest checkerboard!

While it has recently become very trendy again, checkerboard has stood the test of time, making it a perfectly timeless pattern that will seamlessly blend with your decor while adding a unique touch. Lucky for you, we just launched some new checkerboard patterns to get you started: a Checkered Gauze Duvet Cover Set, a Checkered Bath Rug, and a Checkered Gauze Shower Curtain

A Pop of Print

When styling a room, sometimes the easiest thing to do is let your prints do the talking. If you really want a pattern to stand out, try pairing it with a solid base color to compliment it. If the pattern you are looking to highlight is lighter try pairing it with a darker color. For our Checkered Gauze Duvet Cover Set, pair it with dark Linen Sheets to make this light-checked pattern stand out as a focal point in your room. 

To add some pizazz to your bathroom, try pairing the Checkered Gauze Shower Curtain with some Classic Turkish Cotton Towels in the color dusk for a deep moody blue that will contrast with the light curtain.

Modernize Your Monochrome

Monochrome will never go out of style. For an all-white bathroom, pair our new Checkered Bath Rug with these white Turkish Cotton Towels to create a simple and chic space. 

Spice up traditional monochrome with the Checkered Gauze Duvet Cover Set. Paired with a cream, bone, or White Linen Sheet Set, this checkered duvet will easily bring together a soft neutral monochrome look.

Take it to the Max

In the world of home decorating, minimalism has been a buzzword for a very long time, but what about maximalism? As a reaction to the minimalist movement, maximalism was born to celebrate loud prints, clashing patterns, and bright colors.

If any of this sounds exciting, you can try pairing our Checkered Gauze Duvet Cover Set with some decorative pillows for your bed. Our Broken Lines Pillow Cover will add a clashing pattern within a similar color family, while our Cloud Cotton Sham Set can allow you to add some texture to your bedroom.
