On Trend: Plaid Pillows

Back in August, we wrote about the retail trend forecast that plaid would be a must-have for fall. We were skeptical, but new wallpaper designs, carpet tiles, and other home goods have proven to us that plaid is definitely here to stay... at least for now. While we remain unsure about the prospect of an all-plaid living room, we do think...

... that plaid throw pillows are a cute, not-too-overwhelming way to bring a little tartan into the mix. We especially like the way that colorful, saturated plaid pillows look, whether layered on top of one another or used as an accent against a bright chair.
