Buffalo check is such a great pattern. It’s pretty perfect all year round but it especially makes us think of fall. We are so ready for fall. So as an effort of wishful thinking to usher in fall more quickly, we decided to do a round up for you. You’re welcome.

We want that wallpaper everywhere. If only it would drape fabric-like over a table so we could have a buffalo check tablescape….

Oh wait, we have linens that do that ūüėČ Here’s a few events that utilize¬†our Lyme Check and Check linens to bring in that¬†plaid print.

First up is Lyme Check Taupe for a rustic outdoor rehearsal dinner, complete with chicken!

Lyme Check is always a winner paired with Essex, and we love this combo with Essex Taupe and Lyme Check Taupe topper.

Pretty much the quintessential buffalo check, our Check Black/Natural is a great background for boutonnieres or bountiful tables. Sorry, we were going for alliteration there, it was a stretch.

It’s no secret that we LOVE Alexander McQueen. I mean, who doesn’t? We’ve already talked about his butterfly moment in a previous blog post and we’re diving back into his whimsical yet¬†masculine prints again this lovely Friday.

Whimsical Yet Masculine Prints

First up, from McQueen’s FW17 Menswear collection a gorgeous and intricate jacket in black and silver. We’re drawn to the detail of the jacket and love that the print plays on the edge¬†both feminine and masculine styles. Reminiscent of the ‚Äútraje de luxes,‚ÄĚ or suit of lights traditionally worn by Spanish bullfighters, this jacket also reminds us of our Washington Ebony linen. With similar intricacies, both beautiful and masculine, this linen rides that same line of feminine and masculine.

Another jacket from the same collection grabbed our attention with abstract-ish florals and a dark but bright pattern mixing black and metallics. Less of a floral than the print used on McQueen’s jacket but just as interesting is our Bowie linen in Black. It reminds us of some of¬†Gerhart Richter’s paintings, almost like a painted¬†image of the McQueen¬†jacket had a squeegee dragged across it while still wet.

More Whimsical, Less Masculine – But Go With It

You probably didn’t think gold qualified as masculine did you? Well McQueen obviously disagrees and so do we. Though we did name this linen Gwenyth, which slightly contradicts our assertion that it works as a masculine print, the Gwenyth Gold pretty much perfectly gets at the style and color of this amazing McQueen suit. We die just a little bit over this suit. Okay, maybe a lot. Look at it! Bold color, a touch of black leather (shoes) and set amongst what looks like a cemetery? So good. Just grab some matte black plates, brushed silver flatware and have mossy/cement/trailing vine centerpieces with Gwenyth Gold and call it a day.

If you had a hard time with gold, you might just keel over and die with the red velvet and sequin combo but¬†take a deep breath and it’ll all be over in a moment. You might feel some slight pressure, but you’ll get through it ūüėČ

Looking like the most kick@$$ vampire out of modern times, this McQueen number¬†has us all hot and bothered. (In a design-inspiration kind of way. Obviously.) So naturally we go straight to Velvet Red, throw a Mariah Black¬†over it, light some candelabras and turn on ‘Interview with the Vampire’. We’ll just have dinner and a movie by ourselves and it’ll be an awesome Friday night. No really, we’re going to go do that now. K, byeeeeee!
