Wit & Whimsy: Mad for Plaid




I love the quirky combination of elements in this relaxed living room:  The sepia-toned nautical prints; the bold plaids; the vintage container lamp; and the Dagwood throw pillow make me smile!

What do you think about this room?

Until next time...

Blessings!

  3. I think is totally adorable and fun Ricky! I'd have this in a country home...saying cause we had one, and I loved plaids in it. You know, even a beach house, or in a boy's room too! Big hugs,

  4. It is oddly cozy to me, like a fun cabin setting.
    I am in love with plaid and flannel so I get it :)

  9. Any room that has plaid is a winner for me...and blue plaid makes it even better!

  10. Interesting because when I look at the elements individually I think--no, but together they look so cozy and inviting. I mean, who would ever think to have that pillow on their couch! I do think those prints with the sailing ships are very cool.

  11. Hrmm...I like plaid as an accent, especially in clothing, but mixing plaids makes me cross-eyed. And it's so busy that, to me, it clashes with the nautical decor behind the couch and compete for my attention.

  12. It's a fun room, but a bit busy if I was going to use it everyday. I love how the dagwood pillow catches my eye.

  13. Very fun, but definitely not for me. I do like that Dagwood pillow, though :)

  15. I like most everything here, maybe just not together! Never met a plaid I didn't love.........
    Hope all is well, I've missed a lot while I was away. Hope to catch up this week.
    I saw the stadium where our team will visit this weekend, ummm, not what I thought it would be!
