Timeless Tartan

Uk E Online

There is something about winter and the Christmas holiday that makes me want to wrap myself and home in luxurious, festive plaids. Masculine but feminine at the same time. Sarah Jessica Parker and the late great designer Alexander McQueen are a quite vision in their plaid even Charlotte York found plaid chic enough to wear as a full length ball gown to the annual Highland Fling in an episode of Sex and the City. For those of you who love a touch of tartan but not a ball gown worth there are a few great resources for your home as well as just about anything you might like in plaid.

The latest issue of Rue Magazine took my breath away with the inspirational "Tartans & Toddies" by San Francisco, CA based designer Scot Meacham Wood. This man knows Tartan and is not afraid to use it, love it! You can also see Mr. Meacham's daily musings on his blog, The Adventures of Tartanscot

 Rue and San Francisco Chronicle

This is just a glimpse of the article and the rest is eye candy too, a definite must read! Click Here for a behind the scenes video of the table setting...gorgeous!
