Gallery Roundup: Mad for Plaid

    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.

    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.
