Mad For Plaid

Maybe it's the cool weather that's finally moved in. Maybe it's because Christmas is just a few weeks away. Whatever the reason, I'm feeling particularly attracted to plaids and tartans lately.


Scot Meacham Wood's apartment that was featured in House Beautiful a few years ago is a favorite and makes me love plaid even more. It has a comfortable, collected appeal. The aesthetic is an updated take on English country.

Plaids and tartans add instant warmth.


Antiques and plaid are perfect partners, again, creating an English country feel.


Which is not to say that plaids couldn't work in a modern setting.


Plaid and leopard? It can be done.

As can plaid and pink!


I love the plaid headboard and pillows combined with the floral coverlet below.


In fact, plaids and florals are perfect partners!

Here's more English country - plaid chairs and floral chairs - about as comfortable as it gets.


What do you think? Will you be adding some plaid to your winter decor?
