I woud never ever wish away summer.
Love the sunshine and the warmth, the time with my kiddies..
but ever since I saw this sofa in Lonny
I've been daydreaming about plaid. And fall.
Just discovered it's from Anthropologie - of course!
If anyone could goad me into desiring the return of cooler days, it would be them :)
the plaid madness ensues..
a quick fix:
one of the best kept secrets north of the border, Joe Fresh Clothing -
designed by Joseph Mimram, the man who gave Club Monaco it's signature style.
This line is available at my local grocery store - which sometimes makes the grocery budget swell!
Not too much, though these trousers are only $39!
Ralph Lauren always gets plaid right..
How about plaid on an upcycled ottoman?
an easy DIY from instructables
Love the fanciful feel of mix-and-match plaids..
A dollap in an entry..
just a touch of tartan may do..
The Ace Hotel in NYC sharing the love..
I admit, it's not just the plaid I love here - check out their hip loft suite..
Amidst this tartan sea.. I had a realization:
Black Watch Tartan has navy, black and green - the colors of my home.
After searching for a slightly subdued pattern, incorperating those colors,
for living room and dining room window panels for several months -
I have a had a eureka moment!
Off to the fabric store today to have a closer look and get some samples..
What do you think of plaid?
Would you use it in your space?
Maybe in smaller doses :)
til next time..
