Trend Alert: Checks & Plaid

plaid throw pillowsHappy Hump Day! It’s Jacqueline again with a new trend alert post. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again…what we see on the runway sometimes goes hand-in-hand with the trends we see in interiors. This article from Harpers Bazaar is a perfect example of that. Although there are many fun trends I wanted to take away from this post, one of my favorites is checks and plaid. Has anyone else been loving all the warm plaid coats you’ve been seeing all over social media? I absolutely love the idea of carrying this fashion trend into my home (especially with the holidays right around the corner). What better time to add a few touches of color and pattern to a room for a cozy vibe? I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite checks and plaid home items you can incorporate this season (and well into winter).

The upholstered headboard (number 20) would be such a fun addition to a preppy bedroom and would certainly become the focal point of the room. We have number 2 in our living room and it was also part of Sarah’s Amazon Finds post on blankets and throws. I’ve had my eye on this doormat (number 12) from the Magnolia collection at Target for awhile now. I love the idea of layering a rug underneath such as number 11. I know the slippers (number 8) aren’t technically home decor but you wear them around the house and they look super cozy! Anyone else agree? Last but not least…now that I have an almost one-year-old, I’m loving the idea of furniture with storage (to hide all those little toys). Number 4 would look adorable styled in an entryway or mudroom.
