Open House: Do You Decorate With Tartan?

On Sex and the City, Charlotte York's first husband Trey MacDougal expresses his Scottish heritage through Tartan plaid — in their wedding and in the couple's home.

Sex and the City set designer Jeremy Conway layered tartan plaid throughout Charlotte York and Trey MacDougal's Upper East Side prewar apartment. Conway says "We really tried to reinforce that, right down to the bookshelves in the study, which we lined with the plaid." While I would never layer that much pattern anywhere, I do think that there's good reason to be mad about plaid, if it's used in small doses. What's your opinion?

I think it's fun to have a splash here and there. I don't have a tartan plaid but I do have an Irish wool blanket that's been in the family for years hanging over the back of our sofa that is a plaid pattern. lab love those bedroom chairs! and that fabric looks great on them.

I LOVE plaid, especially menswear-styled wools, and it's best when they are used in unusual ways. I recovered some danish modern chairs with fun plaids for a client:
