Adding seasonal accents to your home can be as simple as a tossing a throw pillow or as transformative as a new piece of winter-inspired furniture. I love incorporating seasonal textiles into my home to give it that extra bit of festive glow, and for me, it’s all about the plaid (aka tartan). There’s just something about it that reminds me of a cozy, winter cabin. What do you think?
Even though plaid textiles are somewhat traditional, you can find modern patterns and colors to match any personal style. Check out some inspiring plaid interiors below…
Plaid throw pillows and blankets are simple ways to add a pop of color in a room. And you don’t have to stick to classic red patterns! The vibrant color combinations in modern plaid textiles can give your home a fresh touch.
Contemporary black and white designs are also cool for tartan accents.
In the dining room, switch out your regular table runner with a colorful plaid one. Or try adding tartan placemats with neutral or metallic table ware for a sophisticated display.
A plaid accent wall against modern decor makes for a unique combination. Or keep things classic with traditional wall colors and cozy interiors.
Brave enough for plaid carpeting? Upgrade playrooms or other kid-friendly spaces with plaid flooring for a fun touch. And if you’re not willing to make such a big commitment, a simple rug is equally stylish.
Lastly, furniture upholstered in tartan fabrics is a great way to give your home that cabin fever. Plaid armchairs and footstools are great, but you don’t have to buy a new piece of furniture to achieve the look. Find a classic slipcover and you’re good to go!
