Like it or not Fall is right around the corner. It’s almost time to bring out your wooly scarves, sweaters and boots. Once again fashion has influenced home décor in so many ways. One of my favourite trends is definitely houndstooth.
Houndstooth, also known as dogstooth, is one of the biggest international trends for Fall 2013. This duo-tone patterned garment originated somewhere in the 1800s in Scotland, but soon travelled across the world and became a huge trend for the elite and aristocrats. Houndstooth is a great investment as it keeps making a comeback in fashion.
We have created new collections of wool throws; and of course these include houndstooth. I love teaming these warm greys with a pop of red. Shane has created some very nice art to enhance these collections.
And here’s an example of houndstooth in home décor with pops of green.
