Mad for Plaid: 11 Decorating Ideas
Photo by Robert Brown Interior Design
Plaids, first known as tartans, come in hundreds of patterns. You’re sure to find one you love since there are so many variations. Here, a blue and white plaid couch plays beautifully off the red wall with its expansive collection of blue and white pitchers.
Darker plaids in navy and red tend to be more prevalent.

Love the navy blue bedroom with plaid coverlet. I’m not a real girly-girl floral person, so I do love the addition of plaid to my home. My spare bedroom has a cozy feel to it with a plaid comforter and my kitchen chairs are awaiting a new coat of paint and the seats recovered in black & white buffalo check. It’s casual and down-to-earth for me.
Back in the mid 1990’s, we had a burgandy plaid sofa that I LOVED! This brings back fond memories. Loved so many pics. Pinned!
I love all plaids. Especial the Scottish and Irish. Nothing can warm a room like a plaid.
These are some wonderful reminders of all the plaids there still are, i don’t think it will ever go out of style. I have plaids and strips in my home, they are mostly navy blue. Thank you Jennifer. I ordered one of those animal stacks you showed us you bought i finally have one and it’s all because of you, i loved it so much,
I love plaid too!
The best plaid I ever saw was in the form of a kilt, worn by Sean Connery!
I don’t remember what colors it was though. 😉
So pretty…. I love it all!
The family joke in our family is “Mom’s favorite color is plaid.” I’ve never been a girlie-girl and have always been drawn to plaids and buffalo checks. We had a burgundy/hunter green/navy blue plaid couch when the boys were little and I loved it! Currently, I use different duvet covers that I can switch out the seasons with different plaid. I guess I’m just mad for plaid 🙂
Really like that first photo…the Robert Brown room. Great mix of patterns and I’m intrigued by the framed vintage photo. Would love to see that close up. Probably military, but still interesting and so appropriate to the room.
All of these photos are so attractive. My favorite is the navy and cream ‘Dress Stewart’ plaid couch.
I tried to find that grey plaid setee the sweet pup is sitting on but no luck. The light shades of grey plaid with those wood legs is adorable! Saved it for inspiration.
Plaid really warms a room but for spring it’s nice to see light shades of the cooler tones. See a lot of plaid in the winter cold months. Light plaid sheets for the summer would be nice to see…maybe I’m missing them?
I love plaid. We have one chair in the room full of bookshelves. And lotts of blankets!!
Any way to find out the manufacturer or site where rug in first photo could be purchased?
