Next in our tour of Christmas colors: Christmas plaid. With an abundance of reds and blacks, it reminds me of the English hunt and is the perfect Christmas decor look for a traditional home, or a great effect for a man's study or boy's bedroom. No girlie frills here! Of course, you can also experiment with plaid in the brilliant hues of Feliz Navidad, as below, or wear it out of the house, just like the J.Crew skirt pictured here. And if that's all too much, just try a little at the dinner table, with charming seasonal fabrics from Williams Sonoma. Either way, you'll be perfect in plaid!
This last plaid piece is decoupage - Eddie Ross pointed it out on a shopping tour in Atlanta earlier this year. Did you know he's back in town in early January? It's true! Atlantians can get the scoop at the designer's blog.
