A longtime staple in the closets of men and women alike, the Houndstooth pattern has an iconic legacy dating back to the 1800s. At Little Crown Interiors, we think that the use of a timeless pattern – like Houndstooth – is one of the many ways to achieve a nursery design that’s both current and ageless. So, today, here are some of our top picks for using Houndstooth in a nursery design project…
First, there’s the straightforward use of houndstooth in textiles. Whether added as an accent piece for a subtle effect, or used throughout the room as a unifying factor, the classic nature of this pattern can give your design long term sustainability.

Naturally, it’s important to remember that the houndstooth pattern need not be relegated to the realm of fabric only. Houndstooth can be found in a huge array of fun materials and applications!
A truly modern way to show your love for houndstooth – go huge! Try an all-over pattern on a wall. These wall decals make for a quick, easy, and commitment-free way to accomplish a full-wall look.
