Though plaids and checks are pretty standard for fall and the holidays, there’s just something about about the cool air and brightly colored leaves that makes us reach for the cozy and familiar.
This year, checks, tartans and plaids dominated the fall / winter fashion runways – in everything from plaids at Stella McCartney, to buffalo checks at Dior. It has been said, as fashion goes, so goes the rest of the world. In keeping with that sentiment, here’s a round-up of some easy ways to incorporate this year’s top fashion trend for fall and winter into your home.
Ever since watching the first “Home Alone” movie many years ago, I’ve been intrigued by the idea of styling the bedroom for the holidays. What better way than with a cozy flannel tartan plaid duvet cover and shams?

The Dining Room
There’s nothing quite like a festive table to set the right tone for a holiday meal. Spiking your dinner table’s holiday factor by ditching the formal silverware in favor of some plaid-etched flatware is a safe bet.
If you’re looking to make a statement with your holiday table not only this year but for years to come, consider investing plaid dinnerware. Bright and cheerful, yet easy, plaid plates are the set it and forget it option that will work hard from Thanksgiving all the way to New Year’s Eve.

Taking the Chill Off
Coming in from the cold is even better when you get to sip your favorite hot beverage in a plaid monogrammed mug.
