Mad About Plaid

1 Nov

Today I am talking about plaid. Hints of plaid can be used in all sorts of spaces and I’m showing you how! Let it be known I have not always been a fan of plaid, but within the last few years I have really embraced it. I love the cozy warm feeling this pattern creates. Around this time of year plaid becomes more prevalent, but I am going to show you how plaid can be used in everyday spaces. So curl up and take a look at the cozy plaid clad spaces!


I love the mix of styles happening in this space. The beautiful silk tartan drapes pull together this space. The fretwork on the dining chairs mixed with this tufted yellow seat works so well!


Love this beautiful plaid throw. This space has a wonderful old world feel with the  suitcases and artwork.


Layering plaids in these complementary tones somehow works so perfectly. This little area has a cozy yet modern feel to it. By the way how cute is that dog!?!


This traditional black and white plaid is the perfect addition to this vintage bedroom. Everything in this space feels like it has been collected over time and it all cohesively comes together.


Doesn’t this living room feel like the perfect place to snuggle up by the fire? The plaid sofas paired with the patterned rug and white walls are the perfect combination.


This traditional cabin is rich and warm. The plaid definitely contributes to the warmth in this space.


I’m in love with this seating area! The beautiful plaid patterns against the white chaise is perfection. I’m loving the stacked wood in the back as well!


This guest room designed by Tobi Fairley proves that neutrals can be bold. Who knew mixing leopard print carpet with plaid bedding would be so fabulous? This guest room is classic and timeless.

Here are some great accessories to inject a little plaid into your spaces.

How do you feel about plaid? Loving it or hating it?
