Mad for Plaid

Mad for Plaid

Cooler temperatures and shorter days are a sure sign that fall is on its way, ready or not. And at Kindle Living, we’re more than ready! September sees us re-inspired and revving up in anticipation of our busiest seasons. It also has us thinking about indoor/outdoor spaces and trends in décor and design. I’m not one who thinks of plaid as a fad, there are so many ways to work it that have nothing to do with the uptight, taxidermy-walled, overstuffed hunting lodges of yesteryear.  There is plaid in small, subtle details, like the lining of a holiday envelope or Ralph Lauren’s Glen Plaid Crystal. There are unexpected plaids, like those on Target’s Bormioli Rocco swing-top bottles or the wrapping on a bar of Mast Brothers chocolate – perfect for hostess gifting.  There are homebound plaids, like Chilewich’s floor and placemats, a cozy wallpapered nook or an upholstered daybed.  The point being there are numerous options to incorporate plaid’s many virtues that are more than wrapping yourself in a tartan throw – although that’s always one of the best.  So, grab your plaid – madres, gingham, tartan, glen plaid, Tattersall, check, windowpane or otherwise – and get busy. Feel free to share, we’d love to see your results.
