• 20 Top Plaid Favorites for Fall to Keep You Warm and Cozy

    top 20 plaid 

    There’s nothing quite as welcoming as a touch of plaid.  From a plaid scarf wrapped close to keep out the cold, a black plaid chair to snuggle into or an ottoman, for lots of hot cider or chocolate, if you please. If you have buffalo plaid or tartan on your mind, rug up in chunky sweaters, layer the throws, good books and heavy house socks! It’s fall and time for plaid!

    It might go in and out of fashion but this year plaid lives strong in every size, fabric, and style. More contemporary than ever; from slick silks to modern vintage. Used simply for a more minimalistic approach, or layered for the full festive fever.

    Plaid is a pattern on woven cloth consisting of crossed horizontal and vertical bands in two or more colors. Common plaid patterns include Gingham and Border tartan (think Check pattern), Tattersall (alternating wide bands and narrow bands of contrasting colors) and Madras.

    If you don’t already own well worn and treasured plaid fabric pieces, maybe its time some to your favorite room. Play with color palettes if to get the right color scheme for your rooms.

    Plaid Wingback $2,995 – Eight-way hand-tied all natural cotton, with coil springs, horsehair.

    You don’t have to add a lot – warm woolen blankets, a handsome dog jacket or a check chair are enough to set the fall scene for the coming months.

    If larger home decorating items are off the list, how about plates, place mats or a cute phone cover? Here’s a selection of 20 top plaid favorites, that I had fun searching for, to get ready for warm cider at night and a lie in in the mornings.

  3. Fotini says:

    I’m prettying up my first apartment and not sure where to start with decorating for fall. Thanks for the ideas but is is best to go with big items or start with small ones? I only have a sofa at this stage and its green. Thanks Fotini

    • Christine says:

      It depends on your priorities and your budget but a plaid ottoman could work really well. Otherwise, you could invest in a few small items but try to tie them together or it might look a little piece meal and mean. Hope that helps.
