Mad for Plaid? The November 2007 issue of Domino features a whole editorial on the Tartan Plaid trend. While a whole wall of plaid may be a bit much for our decor tastes, we could surely find room for a little accent of it. Poppytalk recently blogged this Tartan Plaid set of 6 stacked mugs that is perfectly colored for the holidays. It's also a fun way to add some bold pattern to your kitchen decor.
It would also make a great gift as it comes packaged in a matching container, complete with a nifty metal storage rack. They're intended for cappuccino, but Poppytalk says "...hot chocolate would taste so good in them" and we totally agree! Marshmallows anyone? $36 for the set at Plasticland.
