Mix a houndstooth print throw pillow with some other fun ones on your neutral sofa. This is an easy way to create a style and theme for any room! Whether you have sofa in the foyer or living room, use houdstooth to enhance your vision. For a funky, playful vibe, use the print in the midst of other complimentary ones!

2. On the window.

Hang up some houndstooth curtains for a interesting touch to a modern study or home office. In a neutral, masculine room, this printed curtains can add just the right amount of style and texture to keep the room from being too boring or plain.

4. On the table.

Spruce up the breakfast table with a little texture. Whether a table runner for simplicity or a tablecloth covered in houndstooth, this will certainly give any meal an extra unique look. You can easily add an accent color too with some red napkins or bright pink flowers for the centerpiece.

5. On the wall.

You can find houndstooth prints in other colors too! Try out a neutral shade for a wonderfully fun accent wall in the kitchen or your home office. Just choose which wall and get started finding the perfect wallpaper to do the job. Go for subtly because this pattern in black and white can easily overwhelm any room, especially the smaller ones.

6. On the chair.

For a bolder, contemporary look. Try out a houndstooth sofa or chair. It’ll create a focal point in a neutral room or pop right out of a more cultured, eclectic flair. If you want extra style and drama, don’t be afraid to commit to something this big.{image from site}.
