Gingham style has no right or wrong side with respect of its color.
When you think of Gingham what pops into my mind, a warm summer day laying outside with a picnic basket with some very close friends laughing and drinking lemonade.
As an Interior Designer, gingham means French country style that is not entirely true. You can mix and match gingham fabrics with other styles. Having the small checks usually black and white, but hot off the New York Fashion week gingham checks are in all different colors. (all images are from google)
For Interiors like I have stated before you can use gingham fabrics in different styles of homes in different places.
