I have a red/gold/taupe color scheme in my living room. I have plaid drapes with those three colors. The drapes are a large plaid (almost a buffalo check). I am looking at purchasing two club chairs upholstered with a smaller traditional plaid pattern in the same three colors. The drapes are attually brighter and warmer than the picture below shows. Is mixing different plaid patterns [in the same room] a decorating faux pas?
So what advice do you have for Mark? Can these similar (but different) patterns be mixed in the same room?

Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
