With the weather getting chilly & the holiday season approaching we get all excited to take out our "woolies" as my granny Falconer would say. At Mackenzie & Company we are a wee bit obsessed with tartan, which has everything to do with my Scottish heritage. My company was named for my dad's Scottish clan, The Mackenzie's (number 5 below), so that is obviously our favorite in the studio. Pairing herringbone and other wools with our tartans is always a design fav along with pulling in a rich velvet every chance we get. In this blog, we are sharing our top favorite tartan inspired accents for those of you who want a little of an accent but are not so inclined to take a huge leap into total tartan transformation. Oh and - how much are you loving this feature photo above from Ralph Lauren with its traditional elements of tartan, velvet, and of course the adorable pup. That pic could only be more perfect if it featured a King Charles Cav pup like our Maxwell Lewis.
