AMC Mad Men Plaid

Traditional Plaids and Tartans are fresh again this season. The classic colors of these patterns are reinvented where multiple plaids are layered by simply changing the scale.

Plaid is used here as wallpaper– We think this pattern works because of the split wood paneling that gives your eyes a break from all of the plaid! We adore the pedestal sink, sconce lighting and all of those masculine monograms!

  1. My Scottish roots can’t resist — I love the idea of decorating with tartans. As a Stewart, I have quite a few to choose from, but my newest favourite is the special tartan for Princess Diana — oh, those blues. And thanks so much for liking my ‘Colour Fun’ post.

  2. You had me at Mad Men. I need ….NEED…plaid in my living room. I will soon be changing out the tuscan chairs of 2003 for a pretty, timeless plaid. They weave in and out of trendy, but always stay classic.
