Have you noticed an explosion of Tartan plaids around Blogland and Pinterest recently? Tartans are a classic, so they never are considered “out”. But, with the recent “in”, it may only seem they were out for a while.
In the midst of preparing my Thanksgiving Dining on Tartan tablescape this week, my Tartan meter was tripped twice. Two bloggers I visit often published posts of bedrooms they’re redecorating in Tartans.
Tartan plaids are so woodsy and wintery…think of a fireplace and warm flannel blankets. Susan at Between Naps on the Porch gave us a simulation of sorts using tablecloths while waiting for her seamstress to finish the bed skirt for her new bedroom decor.
Isn’t it beautiful?
Earlier in the week, Pat at Back Porch Musings opened the door to her new guest room decor.
Does this make you want to visit Pat and stay in this warm, cozy bedroom? It’s so inviting, especially with our recent temperatures!
I’m sure there are other examples around, and probably at most of your local retail stores. But, Tartans are impacting more than bedding and table linens. Just look at this floor I saw at Houzz.com!
Next up, Tartan window treatments. You had to know I would share these. 😉
There are loads of Tartan Decor Items on Pinterest, too.
Are you inspired? You don’t have to redecorate an entire room, but if you love Tartan plaids, make a simple pillow or something. It’ll bring a cozy warmth to your entire room.
Hey – that gives me an idea. I’m off to the Project Studio to sew something together! (HH, you don’t really need that plaid shirt anymore, do you?)
How do you feel about Tartan plaids? Do you love ’em, or can you leave ’em?
