Trend: Mad About Plaid

Oh, these are so far from your traditional tartans. We love that the pattern -- in unexpected colors -- is popping up on packing tape, wall tiles, and even eco-friendly blankets. Use the design to inject a little warmth into your favorite rooms -- just stay away from lumberjack styles and you’ll keep it cozy, not campy.

Clockwise from top left: Shower curtain,; Envelopes,; Wall tile,; Blanket,; Cutting board,; Tape,; Buffet,
