I recently learned that the first Friday in October is officially dubbed Plaidurday (today is the 4th annual), which is perfect for welcoming the quintessential fall pattern into your home. So to celebrate Plaidurday, I’m sharing three different ways to show off your plaid using the super soft and ever affordable IKEA Hermine throw – it’s only $19.99!
First up, Jennifer over at Dear Lillie drapes this beautiful throw so effortlessly over an armchair in her living room. Don’t you just want to curl up with that cable knit pillow and read a book all day with the windows open to let in the crips fall air? #maybeitsjustme #passtheappleciderplease
Second, Jen over at City Farmhouse made an adorable pillow out of the IKEA throw. The plaid palette provides the perfect amount of masculinity to soften autumn purples and reds and brings out the best neutral colors of the season. Get her full DIY tutorial here.
Finally, Shayna from The Woodgrain Cottage created the most show-stopping dining table using the IKEA throw as a table runner. I love this idea because all the table runners I’ve found at are too short for our table which just isn’t a good look. This throw would look so lovely and full on our table!
