As it turns out, I’m in love with all things plaid. I love it on everything from the vintage wool blanket at the foot of our bed, to a thrifted Thermos I picked up recently; I’m simply mad about plaid. As we head into fall and winter, I can think of no better way to warm up your decor than with the inherent coziness of plaid! But no, no, I’m not talking your grandmother’s plaid. (No offense, grandmas.) I’m talking plaid that feels more modern than country, more vintage than kitsch. Are you wild for plaid, too? Click through for 10 modern ways to decorate with plaid!

At the Foot of the Bed 2 of 11
I love a good wool blanket at the foot of the bed; our bed is never without our favorite plaid throw! I love the pairing of the ticking stripe sheets, navy and plaid on this bed. Balanced out with the bold typography of the wall art, this look is right up my alley.

Plaid Rug 5 of 11
The muted tones and oversized scale of this plaid print make this plaid rug a huge win with me. I love how it looks with modern accessories and nearly white walls. This particular rug is crazy expensive, but the statement it makes is also crazy awesome!

Plaid Throw Pillow 6 of 11
The pairing of this small plaid throw pillow and a sheepskin throw on a mid-century chair is just rockin' if you ask me. It adds a pop of color, pattern and warmth without competing with the modern elements in the room.

Oh man. I can't tell you all the ways I love this plaid fabric on a great, timeless sofa. The bright yellow and gray color palette makes it feel especially modern and not a bit fuddy duddy.

Plaid in the Bedroom 8 of 11
Ok, yes, it's more plaid in the bedroom. But this version is really fun, too! With textured pillows and throws and a wall of reclaimed wood behind the headboard, this room has a modern rustic feel that I love and the plaid adds to that vibe.

These plaid chairs are so sweet when grouped together - I'd love to sit here and read! The mix of aqua and orange keeps the look from feeling overly traditional, yet it still has a completely classic vibe.
