In his new fabric collection for S. Harris, designer Isaac Mizrahi brings an edgy eye to the prepster look with a goal of producing classics “that don’t bore me.” The collection, much like his fashion lines, features silk taffeta plaids and velvet stripes paired with off-the-wall whimsical patterns like leopard prints and, our favorite, Glitterfluff.

Designer Alessandra Branca’s new collection for Schumacher showcases traditional patterns with a modern point of view. Her use of over-sized watermelon red plaid, bold stripes and updated toile in this room is a fresh take on the preppy lifestyle that reminds us of Givenchy’s Fall/Winter 2013 line. When recreating this look, we recommend dark walls to ground the space.

Plaids have been around for ages, yet we’re seeing them in a new way this year. High-end fashion brands like Céline made us fall in love with the pattern all over again by mixing a multitude of them together in various shades. Take a cue from this room and combine different plaids & tartans like Burley – Sorbet on couch cushions and pillows.

Plaids are often associated with the equestrian lifestyle, a look quite popular in fashion at the moment. We are head-over-heels for the marriage of the two in this stable-turned-dining room. Although a dining set in a stable is unusual, plaid—like those in Ralph Lauren’s Fairfield collection—is what ties this fun holiday entertaining idea together.
