Fall is a great time to transition your bedroom form a light and airy summer look to a warmer, cozy vibe for the cold months ahead. You’ll find so many bedding options that it’s often hard to choose something, but I always think plaid bedding is perfect for adding warmth and depth to a room.
If you like mixing patterns, plaid can be a smart choice. This blue bedroom has at least seven different patterns, not including the stripes on the wall. For some, this might be too much pattern, but others might enjoy the look. It works because the patterns are varying shades of the same color. Plus you have a solid blue quilt on the bed to ground the space.
Plaid bedding works well with a variety of prints, from circles on the area rug to florals in the form of pillows.
Red plaid is a great choice for Christmas but can be used throughout the winter season and even into summer, if desired. If you’re a bit timid about mixing patterns, use a few pieces of bedding that come in solid colors.
In this traditional bedroom, a plaid settee nestles at the foot of a beautiful metal bed with a creamy comforter and fun dragonfly pillow.
If you don’t want to spend money on a new quilt or comforter, use a plaid coverlet or blanket to add pattern and cozy warmth to your bedroom. A throw quickly and easily refreshes the room without a lot of work or money.
Matching double beds feature the same plaid pillow shams, but the blankets at the foot of the beds are slightly different. Don’t be afraid to mix and match plaid patterns. This look works because the size of the plaid in the blankets is the same.
Soft colors hint at a plaid pattern in the bedding of this beautiful bedroom with its green walls and white shiplap ceiling.
You can’t go wrong when adding plaid bedding to a cabin bedroom. This room makes me want to curl up for a long winter’s nap when the snow and wind are howling outside.
Here’s another example of two beds featuring different bedspreads. The saturation of blue is the same in both pieces so you might not even notice at first that the patterns are different.
I think my favorite bedrooms in this collection are the first and third photos. Do you have a favorite?
