The world has gone mad for tartan! Tartan scarves, tartan shoes, tartan coats, tartan carpets and tartan sofas. If you go into any store you are sure to find something tartan, the super trend is back and it is better than ever. This timeless classic has made its way straight from catwalk and into our hearts and into our homes, but what’s the best way to do tartan? Here are a few top tips on creating that perfect tartan look.
Use cosy throws, cushions and quilts. If you don’t want to overhaul your entire living room then adding simple throws to beds and sofas will create a cosy and on trend feel. However, if you want to go that extra mile with tartan, add a few scatter cushions and tartan artwork that can easily be stored away if you fancy a change in the future. Tartan can be quite intense so use it in moderation or a room can look overwhelmed.
Use the best coloured tartan for you. There are many types of colours when it comes to tartan so there has never been a better time to get creative. You can experiment with colours and find one that perfectly suits your décor and personality. If your décor is simple you should go for a heavier print/colour, traditional red or black works well here. Tartan carpets are at the height of sophistication and soft, neutral patterns are a great way to add a real statement to any room. At ScS we have a large selection of luxury tartan carpets, accessories and sofas in a wide range of colours and prints. From rustic plaid, to classic royal you will find something to bring your home into 2014 with style.
