I'm mad for plaid but only in small doses--a soft blanket or pillow on a lounge chair or sofa provides just the right amount of plaid panache for me and can be easily changed based on the season and my ever changing whim. I think style icon Lee Radziwill's pied-a-tierre in Paris, which  features a vintage cream Christian Liaigre's sofa stylishly draped in an earth toned plaid throw, hits just the right note.  Subtle and casually chic, the plaid throw softens the sofas angular shape juxtaposing nicely with the paired glass and brass coffee tables. Ms. Radziwill makes it look oh so easy!

If you like the throw featured in Lee Radziwill's living room-- the iconic Burberry plaid blanket is always in style and in cashmere, naturally!

The handsome guestroom of design team Mark Badgley and James Mischka at their horse farm in Kentucky.  Vintage Louis Vuitton luggage serve as a side table. Crisp Sferra white linens and a vintage plaid Ralph Lauren blanket evoke country squire elegance.

If you like the Badgley Mischka bedroom you may like the Adrianna taffeta pillow by Ralph Lauren.
