If you feel that the decor is still lacking that little something extra, break out the paint, stencils and matching wallpapers and paint checks from the room’s top to the bottom.

Here are more creative nursery decorating ideas to accessorize your gingham baby bedding sets with matching checkerboard patterns:

  • Line baby’s dresser drawers with leftover wallpaper
  • Paint inserts on the front of baby’s armoire or other pieces of nursery furniture with a checked design

  • Matching shower curtains
  • Cushions for the nursery rocker or sofa slipcovers
  • Gingham checked ribbon tied in a big, fluffy bow decorating a homemade country door wreath

Gingham baby bedding and fabrics brings to mind a country cottage surrounded by a picket fence with red and white curtains edged in white eyelet fluttering at open windows. If you are designing country style baby nursery themes, gingham may very well be the best fabric for you. The red and white check nursery color scheme would look lovely in a baby girl's room decorated in a farming theme. Certain shades of green gingham baby bedding may blend perfectly with classic John Deere Green and yellow baby accessories. Red gingham also makes a lovely accent for tractors, barns and wagons found on ranches and farms.


Gingham baby bedding can easily be found in many colors as well as classic blue and white for a boy as well as pink and white for a girl. Even black gingham is stunning in combination with bright primary colors giving this classic pattern a modern, contemporary feel. Black and white checks are the "go to" combo for a French country design.

The message Unique Baby Gear Ideas is trying to get across in this article is that we all can use a touch of gingham somewhere in our projects. Have fun decorating with checks and remember to share photos of your nursery design project when it is completed.
