Trend Alert: Plaid is back, and we couldn’t be more pleased. Though it got its start all the way back in the 6th century, the historical tartan pattern is no longer limited to Scottish kilts and bagpipes. 

Today, with thousands of color combinations and patterns to choose from, it’s a bold and versatile statement for the season. Check out our favorite ways to throw your home an unforgettable plaid party…just don’t forget our invite! 


Deck The Walls In Plaid

Textiles aren’t the only way to add plaid to your home. Transitional tartan wallpapers in various tones refresh any space and create a bold look in place of boring, white walls.

Tartan Tiles 

Green, red, or navy plaid not your thing? Not to worry! These muted tartan shower tiles add a distinctly masculine feel to this master bath. Paired with neutral cabinetry and simple hardware, it’s a statement without being over the top.  

Understated Elegance

We know commitment is tough. If you’re not looking for a permanent change but are mad about plaid, pillows, rugs and window treatments are the perfect temporary touch. 

Flannel Flooring

Don’t be afraid to add plaid to the heart of your home. Upgrade those checkerboard kitchen floors with a muted plaid. When you’re going for such a bold pattern in the kitchen, keep the rest of the space muted.

Plush Plaid

Grab the softest blanket you can find and sink into this slouchy sofa. Both stylish and cozy, this couch is the perfect fall transition for your home. If you’re more into a subtle touch, sit a buffalo check chair alongside a structured leather sofa to give your space a playful mid-century modern feel.

Does it get any better than wood paired with flannel? Complementary plaid bedding fronting a reclaimed wood wall makes for a seriously cozy bedroom look, especially with the addition of thick-pile rugs or fur throws.

Exterior Plaid Accents

Don’t limit plaid to just the interior of your home. Plaid-woven wicker chairs make a statement in an otherwise minimalist outdoor space, and a simple tartan doormat gives guests with a warm welcome.
