For a while check and chintz was thought of as too preppy and a bit pretentious. I personally always loved it and used it for many years here and there in design. I love the resurgence of this lovely fabric and how the bold new colors and scale have made it user friendly and fun! I am toying with big red buffalo check bedding for a girl's room design with a little apple green and a complementary fabric thrown in, will share when done. Are you happy to see check and chintz back in design? I don't really think they ever truly left.
