It's that time of year! Time to celebrate everything Irish! With a name like Shannon and a strong Irish heritage, you know I'm in heaven:)
I love plaid, and I REALLY LOVE Tartan plaids, so I couldn't resist a post dedicated to using Tartan Plaids in the home.

There's something warm, cozy, and inviting about Tartan Plaids. It can be used with vintage lace, rustic woods, or in the case of this Berksire lamp, clear glass. It's possibilities are endless.
My favorite designer, Ralph Lauren, has a fantastic selection of Tartan Plaid bedding, furniture, fabric, and table linens.

Have you ever seen a more beautiful powder room than this vintage bathroom wallpapered in Tartan Plaid. They've even framed swatches of other tartans and hung them around a large print of Elks. You feel like your in a Scottish hunting lodge :)

This is my favorite combination and shows the complete versatility of plaid. By simply adding a floral pillow and a white lace pillow the plaid has taken a romantic turn, I love it.
