Words I Love : Argyle


adjective : having a diamond-shaped pattern in two or more colors; dates from about 1790–1800; variation of Argyll; so called because original patterned after the tartan of this clan

Lately I have been seeing the potential for adding argyle painted patterns around the house, the first thing that comes to mind are the panels of the side door of the garage. Right now the side of the garage is a sea of mediocrity, an argyle pattern on the individual door panels will no doubt be whimsical, and if its too much, it can always be painted over. But I doubt that will happen.
