Throw Pillows

When it comes to holiday decorations, budget-friendly options — like pillows — are always a safe bet since they’re only on display for a few weeks every year. If you’re looking to add a dash of traditional style, plaid is the ideal route to take. A few pillows sporting this favorite winter pattern will turn any sofa into the best spot to kick back and indulge in a mug of hot cocoa.


Wallpaper has become increasingly popular lately thanks to easily removable options hitting the scene. Whether you’re a plaid fanatic and want your walls to sport this pattern year-round, or you simply want to add a bit of festive flair for a few weeks before the holidays, this statement pattern is a perfect choice. From classic red and green to a more modern black and white alternative, this backdrop will look extra charming with holiday favorites styled alongside it.


Gathering around the table with family and friends is certainly one of the best parts about the season. A well executed tablescape comes in a variety of styles, but you don't need to go overboard with holiday accents. Avoid the hassle of creating a curated setup and go back to basics by laying down an eye-catching tablecloth to set the mealtime mood. Grab a plaid option that’s rocking your favorite hues and set up some low-key settings to let the textile do all the talking.

Muted Shades

Traditional red and green may be the colors most commonly associated with this time of year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t opt for some muted alternatives. Not crazy about the standard color palette? You can still incorporate cozy plaid accents into your interiors without sticking to the expected choices. A couple of gray pillows or a throw blanket will introduce a perfectly rustic — and seasonally-appropritate — element to any spot of your home.

Dining Chairs

If you’re looking to transform a room in your home into a next-level holiday hangout, look no further than this throw blanket hack. While a good blanket can be utilized in a variety of ways to spruce up some lackluster corners, using them to add texture and a pop of color to the backs of chairs is a great way to revamp your dining space. Outfit each seat at the table with a cozy plaid throw to create a setup that would make even your Grinchiest family member swoon.

Upholstered Furniture

There are plenty of temporary accents you can work into your design scheme, but if you’re looking for a more permanent piece, consider an upholstered option. Choose a desk chair or ottoman and pair it with your favorite plaid fabric. Style this standout amongst existing furniture and decor to add an extra cozy contrast.

Holiday Decor

If you love holiday decorations, but are looking for an unexpected seasonal twist, look no further than this playful tree idea. These upholstered trees are ideal for those who want to add a little holiday spirit to the empty corners of their home, or perhaps, those who want to avoid standard trees entirely. Have fun with the upholstery by opting for plaid prints to combine with the more traditional forest green shades. This festive forest will give any nook a charming update.


Modest additions, like pillows and throw blankets, certainly have their appeal, but taking it one step further is the best way to capture those log cabin vibes. Take advantage of the chilly temps and swap out your current bedding for an ultra warm substitute. A plaid duvet paired with matching shams will create the dreamiest of winter bedrooms.

Window Treatments

One spot of the home that you can instantly makeover with nothing more than some good fabric? The windows, of course. Turn yours into the center of attention by bringing in treatments that are guaranteed to wow. For the most dramatic effect, opt for floor to ceiling curtains in a plaid print that will introduce a bold, festive look in one easy step. Use the same pattern on a few matching throw pillows to pull the look together for an extra swoon-worthy appeal.

Plaid Accents

The smallest doses of plaid go a long way, trust us. If you follow the less is more approach when it comes to decorating for the holidays, this traditional print will be all you need to Christmas-ify your interior. Grab a few tiny accents, like these pillar candles, to give any surface area a quick winter revamping. Despite their small size, the itty bitty additions pack enough of a punch to become the highlight of your room.
