Plaid and Décor: Yes or No?

Although often considered an exclusively classic pattern, plaid has started to work up the courage to break into modern homes with a contemporary flair that is all its own. Blown out of scale, bright combinations, unconventional colors, and the layering of styles have brought this once-uber-traditional pattern into the millennium with panache. Because it's a classic, plaid also endures as a no-fail pattern for more traditional tastes.

Suddenly, we're seeing a pattern that used to work exclusively in historic homes find its way into the most glamorous of settings. Plaid can be cool and stylish; all you need to do is treat it like any other geometric print and have a bit of fun.

One of the most effective, not to mention, affordable ways to infuse dimension into a space is through a pattern. Plaid gets the job done with a seemingly limitless array of color mixtures and scale combinations. You can use it as drapery fabric, throw pillows, bedding, even wall coverings.

While plaid is often enough seen in bedrooms and living rooms through upholstered furniture and bed linen choices, using it in unexpected places – like the kitchen or the dining room or even the bathroom is a cool way to experiment with the trend.

Plaid is one of the most multi-dimensional patterns there is. Whether it's tartan or tattersall, gingham or check, there's little argument against the fact that plaid could work its way into just about any type of unique decor. For sleeker styling, choose a favorite plaid scheme and use it in the room as a focal point in a sofa or accent chair.

Or, if your tastes are more eclectic, play with several different types of prints and mix plaid with florals, geometric prints, and even animal prints. When keeping to the same color scheme, the combination of patterns will feel cohesive, not overdone.

Plaid is an eclectic stylist's dream. Bridging the gap between modern and traditional decor, it truly runs the gamut in terms of design. Keep the pattern tight with a handful of colors to achieve a classic look, or go more modern with an oversize print in just one or two colors.
