Perfectly Plaid

A continuing appreciation for plaids seems to be everywhere these days. 

Loving this mohair plaid by Lelievre

And I am finding them growing on me. There have long been the plaids and tartans of Scotland and Ralph Lauren's rustic use of plaids, but lately they are not only in clothing, but on our walls and covering our furniture.

For those with warm weather this week, bring out the wool blanket and celebrate!

Distinctively modern uses of plaid:

Have you ever tried to paint a plaid pattern? A few years ago I painted this plaid mailbox for a crazy-about-plaids client and whew- trust me, it takes a lot of very precise measuring and taping!

Summer Thornton's restrained use of gorgeous color in plaid: just enough.
