In spring we turn towards Gingham. But autumn is all about plaid. And like gingham, plaid was initially a kind of material, not a pattern. Historically, plaid was the type of garment or material while the checked pattern was called tartan. A plaid was actually a large long scarf – usually 10 by 5 feet – in fact the kilt was known as “the plaid with a belt”.
Much later, the word “plaid” meant a fabric with a tartan pattern. When it comes to seeing the pattern in the apartment, we have Queen Victoria to thank. She loved everything Scottish and had decorated her highland summer house from top to bottom with tartan. But you don’t have to have a Scottish castle to bring home some plaid. You can find more plaid inspirations below.
