    Tis the Season for Plaid!

    on

    Yes…I am addicted to plaid! Most of you relate to “Sweater Weather” when the season hits, but I am “Plaid Please!’. I was so excited when it became a trend a few years ago, even though I loved it before it was trendy. Plaid shirts and dresses, plaid chairs, plaid pillows, plaid tabletop… Its because plaid screams warm, relaxed, comfy and cozy. Right now, it is everywhere, and I must use some serious self-control when I go in a store and see it in every color! Buffalo, Tartan, Gingham, Check, Hounds Tooth. When wearing plaid it is best to pick just one item. Plaid is strong and meant to stand out so pair it accordingly.

    As a designer I will say that adding plaid to your home is simple.  Just remember…less is more with plaid. You can do pillows, bedding, runners, place mats or even chairs. You can even do a sofa but make sure the sofa is your only plaid piece! If you add too much plaid it will work against you and create a mess, but yes you can mix plaids carefully! You can bend the rule a little with seasonal plaid. Who doesn’t love plaid around the holidays?

    So, go ahead, embrace your inner plaid!
