Trend Alert: Get Your Plaid On!

You can’t get more traditional than a tartan –  but we love this classic pattern used in whimsical and unexpected ways.  Every April, Hilton Head is covered red tartan – the RBC Heritage Golf Tournament trademark. In honor of one of our favorite spring events on Hilton Head, we’d like to share some idea’s for you too…

Residential with Plaid

A classic study yearns for perfect plaids (especially for our clients who have a love affair with anything Scottish)!  We upholstered the walls in plaid and used it for window treatments, chairs, footstools and event throws!

We hope to see many of our friends at the RBC Heritage Golf Tournament this week!

Get Your Plaid On!
