People seem to have a love-hate relationship with plaid. It has been around for ages and it seems you either love it or hate it. Recently, decorating with plaid has seen a surge in popularity. This traditional pattern is showing up on everything. It’s a classic pattern that, much like gingham, has a very distinct and memorable style. The trick to decorating with patterns is to do so in moderation. If everything in the room has one pattern on it, it risks becoming repetitive and a bit overwhelming. Use solid colors and varying texture to balance it out. You can also mix patterns with the right technique, which you can learn about on my post Mixing Patterns.
