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.
