Bring on the Plaid

Autumn is my absolute favorite season and I’m beyond ready for it. Summer was beautiful this year — more so than most — but I’m ready for football, layers, and plaid! While I don’t have a lot of the classic pattern lining my wardrobe, I do have a few pieces for my home that I really look forward to digging out as soon as the temperature starts dropping below 50-degrees in the evenings.

The obvious way to bring out season patterns is through accessories and small textiles — think throws, kitchen linens, etc. But another way is by switching up your bedding. I have the sweetest set of light grey flannel plaid sheets that more or less live on my bed during the chilliest months of the year.

Done right plaid can look downright modern. It’s all about the setting you place it in as well as the style you choose. A pattern with fewer color tones and a larger graphic look does the trick quite nicely.

If you’d rather bring plaid into your space in a more year round permanent way I’d suggest sticking to that same idea. Stick to the same color family as your other large pieces, a big and bold pattern instead of a smaller more detailed one, and sleek lines.

Plaid is one of the most timeless patterns, it’s been around for centuries and will be around for many more. Fall is a welcome time to experiment with this bold look in an unapologetic way.

Vintage Modern Decor with Southwestern Rugs

Southwestern Rugs for Modern Style

These days, interior design is less about having a home that looks straight out of a catalog and more about putting your personal stamp on a space. With all the thrift stores and flea markets out there, collecting one-of-a-kind pieces to make a one-of-a-kind style statement is both easy and fun! The result is spaces that combine unique vintage finds for an utterly fresh and modern effect.

If you’re on the hunt for floor coverings that complement your vintage modern decor, look no further than Southwestern rugs! The subtle patterns act as a neutral–tying together a collection of eclectic furnishings–and simultaneously bring their own flavor to the mix. Flat weave construction adds quiet texture, while a diverse range of palettes suits any situation. The beauty and versatility of a Southwestern rug will set the tone for a space as unique as you!

Art Meets Rug

ReCheng-Tsang+Rug
Artist: ReCheng Tsang  Rug: Surya Summit SMT6600

If rugs can look like art in their own right, why can’t they be art? Each day as I research art and design for my day job I come across numerous pieces that would translate so well to home decor. So much so that the idea of pairing artists up with floor rugs that look almost inspired by them seemed like a natural fit to talk about in this space.

ReCheng Tsang’s beautiful sculptures are created out of porcelain, yet have a look about them that seems almost textile-like. You can almost see the motion if you look hard enough! The perfect match would be this handmade wool Surya Summit rug with tufts that begs to be walked upon.

Maud-Vantours+Rug

This one is for all of the color lovers out there. Artist Maud Vantours works with paper to create intricately put together patterns and sculptures. I love how this particular Surya Banshee rug plays with so many colors in an equally method-to-the-madness mindset.

Olivier-Mecker+Rug

Olivier Umecker’s mixed media works of art feel full of energy and tension, and I’m getting that same vibe from this Surya Gypsy rug design. The freeform shapes and overall design lend a fun devil-may-care attitude whatever room you place it in!
Matthew-Stone+Rug

Sometimes paintings (and decorating) with abandon is a direction that’s just asking to be explored. Matthew Stone’s thick and heavy paintings aren’t questions, they’re statements. Want the same result in your space? I’d opt for something like this unencumbered beauty from Tayse International Trading to anchor everything.
