One of the best features of modern plaid wallpaper is that it can be paired with a variety of different styles of decor. For example, it can be paired with mid-century modern furniture for a retro-chic look, or with contemporary pieces for a more minimalistic feel. It can also be paired with other patterns, such as geometric or floral designs, to create a playful and eclectic look.

However you choose to showcase your tartan wallpaper just keep in mind the overall aesthestic of your room to ensure it works with your overall scheme. For example; if you want the wallpaper to be the star of the show, choose a design with bold, contrasting colors. If you want it to blend in seamlessly with the existing decor, choose a design with softer colours and finer lines.

Also to bear in mind scale. Large scale patterns are best used on larger walls so you can appreciate the complete pattern.
