Okay, I MUST be late to this party….but I just recently stumbled upon an incredibly charming blog– The Hunted Interior.  Kristin Jackson, interior designer and founder of the blog, believes in hunting your surroundings with an open mind to find and create an authentic look that works for you and in your space.  We buy what you’re sellin’, girl!

Last week, she was mad about PLAID and featured a photo of a cozy fall room with plaid accents from House Beautiful.  Have you seen this gorgeous living room?  Consider me SOLD on plaid!

Well, I just hate it when I fall in love with a look on a blog or in a magazine and am unable to translate the room to real life. Our magical design sorceress (also know as our Director of Design, Shelby Girard), recreated the room with items you can snag online or in stores today!

Now, Shelby provided fabric for the drapery since she couldn’t find plaid drapes perfect for the look…but we will have a post on DIY drapes coming STAT!  Alternatively, you could keep your eye out for some darker, earth-toned plaid drapes.  I have a feeling they’re out there somewhere!

How about this for a fall-ready, chic yet gender neutral living room?  LOVE to Kristin Jackson of the Hunted Interior for her Mad Plaid post (and pretty much all of her other posts– seriously, check her out).  We can’t wait to see what else you have in store for us!
