I’m Dreaming… of a Plaid Christmas.

06 Dec I’m Dreaming… of a Plaid Christmas.

Scottish Staple - Hunter boots and Tartan scarves.

When it comes to decorating, for most of the year I’m a coastal classic gal…our home is awash in shades of blue and green, weathered wood and sisal rugs.  You’ll find starfish or coral in most of our rooms, and glass jars filled with seashells that bring back memories of our favorite days at the beach.  But when the temperature drops, the days get shorter and the holiday season starts, I once again fall in love with plaid.  Tartans to be exact.  Time to pull out the plaid blankets…

Nothing says Christmas like fresh greens & tartan plaid!

This Christmas season, I added a tartan plaid paper to the back of my kitchen hutch.
And I found these placemats and napkins at Home Goods for our holiday table.

    I went out a bought a plaid shirt just for this month! It's too festive of a look not to sport. Love your table linen score.

    I need so many of these plaids in my life. I am in love with the shoes and anything Ralph does. I love how you lined the back of your hutch. Pretty plaids.
