RAD PLAID - A LITTLE OR A LOT

I have come to a conclusion about plaid.  I like a lot of plaid in fashion and a little of plaid in home design. A plaid is a timeless pattern...plaid works on the streets and in interior design.  Perfect for fall!

One of my favorite rooms is the kitchen featured below with a plaid floor!  I have featured this room below because it belonged to my friend and architect Tom Newman.  He recently sold his chic Los Angeles house for several million dollars...I'm sure this plaid floor was a selling point!

Tartan Plaid, Glen Plaid, Prince of Wales Plaid, Tatersall and more...doesn't matter what type of plaid...I think this pattern is quite rad!

Do you like to wear plaid or decorate with plaid...or both?  If you have steered away from plaid in the past, why don't you like?  Would love to hear your plaid stories...please leave comment below!

Happy Friday!

  1. Nice feature. I think the fourth picture was taken in London, though - I have never seen a red double-decker bus in Paris.....

    1. I can confirm that there are double decker buses in Paris. I hate to admit doing something totally touristy...but I have actually been on a Paris double decker bus once a very long time ago (and I actually enjoyed it...)...oy vey...OSS (over sharing syndrome) kicking in! Lastly, am pretty sure it is Paris in the pictures because I got the photos from Style.com when they were chronicling Paris fashion week. If it is London though, I happily stand corrected.

  2. Good luck with the contractor. And I love just about every plaid out there.

  3. I haven't worn plaid that much in the past, but I want to embrace it this fall [i'd luv some plaid flats]. I love that green plaid dress.
