Gallery Roundup: Mad for Plaid

We just love painted patterns in nurseries; they always make a major impact. While plaid is an old-school pattern, these rooms, found in our gallery, have made the traditional plaid cool and modern.

    I love the wall of that first nursery photo. It reminds me of a Piet Mondrian artwork.

    I think I’d go with Henry’s nursery with this one. It’s a classic room with a a very creative and colorful twist!

    I actually prefer plaid, checkered or argyle patterns more than houndstooth or chevron.

  • Faye Pearson

    I never knew Argyle is also a plaid pattern. I had to Google it a bit.

    Well, according to Wikipedia, plaid is also used as a synonym for tartan or, in the USA, any checked cloth pattern, so yeah, argyle is plaid.
