I used to think of buffalo checks as being awfully "country" - for me, the term conjured up images of ruffled valances in the Country Curtains catalog and overstuffed chairs in a log cabin. But I've recently had to completely re-think this classic pattern after seeing it featured in some of these spaces, where it turns up looking quite sophisticated.
Looks so good in these contemporary / transitional rooms ~

I'm a total convert.
Of course, once I started noticing it in interiors, it dawned on me that I've been pinning buffalo check outfits like crazy since last fall. And while I thought of those checked shirts that were all the rage as being a cozy, layer-with-a-down-vest look for fall, these pics have me realizing just how well it works for this winter-into-spring season too.
