Mad for Plaid
It’s still warm and muggy here in Houston, but the days are getting shorter, and autumn is in the air, if not the temperature, so I’m in full-on fall mode. That makes me think of home and hearth, not fun and sun, so I ask you, is there any fabric more homey and cozy than a good plaid?
While I love plaid in the home year-round, this time of year I crave it even more. Tartan plaid, glen plaid, buffalo check - bring on all the plaids! I certainly would love to live with with blue tartan walls year round! Especially paired with white, crisp yet not too cabin-y.
Another favorite plaid for year-round use is buffalo plaid, also known as buffalo check. Same pattern, different nomenclature.
The great thing about buffalo check is in the summer months, you can call it gingham! In the below bathroom it’s actually a painted effect of white, blue, and a mix of the two.
If you’d like to bring just a bit of fall ambiance into your home, as I always say, the easiest thing to do is switch out your pillows...
Of course there are always other plaid home accessories, too...
What? Too soon?
