Tuesday Tidbit: My (lower case p) plaid Habit
I hesitate to share this habit I have for plaid…because there is an Emperor of Tartan…and his name is Scot – as in Scot Meecham Wood
I will call it plaid (lowercase p) for today in deference as I am a serious admirer of Scot’s talent with (Uppercase T) Tartan!
There are not many Designers who can skillfully master using this in custom spaces without making it look like a Marie Callender’s from 1970
Scot has what must be an ordained from on high way with the nuances of scale & pattern…& one heck of an installer…
Don’t believe me?
Designer trying to use plaid well? DIY Person? 2 Couture Chateau “must do’s” for custom plaid drapery: Interlining & Hand Hemming.
The interlining prevents sag & keeps the plaid hanging well, especially important with pattern match. Use a lightweight one if needed & the hand hem? Well…I just love a hand hem 🙂
I like it pink & loud: So fun for a custom teen room or studio office
And sometimes full of vinegar
So (p)laid & (T)artan…
Here’s to making it current. Here’s to customizing your home with pop of pattern.
But please – before you (or I for that matter) use it in a space…
take a lesson from the Master. And “For the Record”…am glad there’s a curator out there who scans the world for people skilled enough to install it!
