It’s time for a new monthly moodboard and this December, I’m feeling a bold & festive pattern that is perfectly suited for the holiday season… tartan! You can probably guess a large portion of this inspiration is probably because of the documentary I just bragged on (read more in this post). I’m wondering why I’ve never used red in my home before? I feel like I need to change that very soon and tartan is the perfect, classic pattern that works year round. Click through to see my finds this month, as well as more inspiration. This is a good one, folks!
With enough tartan, I feel like you don’t even need holiday decor. It’s SO cozy and festive on its own. The eclectic and maximalist living space below is the perfect example. There is so much to love in this space!
Interested to see my finds? Use the numbered links below to shop.
01: cotton pajama set // 02: tartan apron // 03: tartan mugs // 04: plaid picture frame // 05: dessert plates // 06: wool throw // 07: tartan headboard // 08: flannel sheet set // 09: oven mitt and pot holder // 10: plaid ottoman // 11: dog bed // 12: pillow top bench
From the collage, I feel like the easiest pieces to implement would be the seasonal textiles- the throw (#6), winter bedding (#8), and the cute dog bed (#11). If you’re a bit more daring, try the bench (#12) or the headboard (#7). Other non committal items include the plates (#5), picture frames (#4), or the pajamas (#1). Which are your favorites?
Even in the summer months, you could easily style a pair of tartan pillows for a bold pop of sophisticated color, like the image above. On the other end of the spectrum, check out the image below. Tartan for days and LAYERED!
Are you into this bold pattern, do you only enjoy it during the holidays, or are you game to use it year round? I’d like to say, I’m team year round. My goal for 2020 is to be bold, challenge myself to use colors and patterns that aren’t as “easy”, and push myself as a designer. Cheers to that, my friends!
