Mad for Plaid

October 24, 2012

I love that plaid is making a strong showing this season, from pillows to wool stadium blankets to dinner plates plaid is everywhere.  It’s fabulous to see the age old tartans move away from kilts and sashes and into more decorative applications.  After all,  a good tartan plaid is too beautiful to grace the inside of a closet most of the time.

Wouldn’t these plates by Ralph Lauren Home be festive for Christmas morning brunch? They have that dressed up lodge look that any rustic holiday would appreciate.

I love the pop of black these pillows provide.  Wouldn’t it be great if the ribbon were made of velvet?

These throws would be excellent to tote with you to the next chilly football game.  Or use them to add a pop of color to a neutral monochromatic room.

I once had a friend tell me that it’s more luxurious to put in a carpet meant for a hotel room, rather than the run of the mill short pile carpet most homes have.   I have to agree, the plaid here is more luxurious and really packs a punch.  The wow factor is great!

Which use of plaid are you drawn too?
