After finishing my parents’ family room makeover this week, I started thinking about those hideous blue and yellow plaid couches. My mom tried “gifting” them to several people, but no one took the bait.
But then it got me thinking… sometimes plaid is a GOOD thing. Actually, plaid can be pretty down right awesome when done right. For example:
Don’t go for plaid with contrasting colors. Stay simple.
try a little accent chair.
Adds a little interest and pattern to the area.
Just don’t overdo the design;
stay simple on the accessories and window treatments.
Check out this gorgeous nail head trim headboard in navy and red plaid!
Think on a smaller scale, like just an accent wall.
Simple yet chic.
And plaid always looks amazing when mixed with broad stripes.
It can help the colors of a room seem more cohesive.
I love how this is mixed with the patterned wallpaper. Gorgeous!
Old school hunter green plaid couches anyone?
Yeah… we had those too.
My couch and chair are plaid and I love them. They are very light colored.

I love the timelessness of the look, I have some tartan / plaid in my dining room & I love it
Love the touch of plaid!
