With the colder weather settling in, there’s nothing better than snuggling up in front of the fireplace under a large blanket, cradling a cup of coffee and watching the fire burn. So, to set the mood, I’ve pulled together a collection of cozy throws to suit any style or snuggling fancy…
I think this is the blanket version of comfy chenille sweater. How fabulous would that feel!? via Pottery Barn.
This Sherpa throw from Kohl’s Sonoma brand is great for two reasons: the super-plush fuzzy side and the super-soft smooth side! (I recently snagged this with some Kohl’s cash, and I can vouch for both the extreme fuzziness and extreme softness. It’s delightful).
I wish technology was advanced enough to allow us to feel what’s on our computer screens. I just want to pet this throw. Or wrap myself up in it papoose-style. Via Pottery Barn.
Chic mohair meets Grandma’s crochet basket. Or at least, that’s how I would describe this pick from Anthropologie. Soft, irresistible, and made oh-so-precious with the ombre-dyed crochet ruffle to finish off the edges. So pretty.
Hope you’re feeling nice and cozy now! I know I’m ready for a nap…
I hope everyone had a good weekend! Tom & I both took Friday off to use up some of our vacation time, and it was glorious to have a 3-day weekend. But then again, when isn’t it glorious to have a 3-day weekend?
We got some Christmas shopping done, mainly things I’ll be using for our “Winter Wonderland” metallic-y themed mantle/family room, but also a couple of gifts! We also browsed through Pier 1 and brought home two plush pillows to add some cozy texture to our couches. I have plans to build on these for aforementioned “Winter Wonderland”.
Look at all that plushy goodness! They are just so delightfully fuzzy, I can’t stop petting them. Tom thinks this is weird.
Oh, and they were 20% off, so we paid about $18 per pillow! Ow, ow!
Did you add any texture to your home this weekend? Or maybe to your wardrobe?
Look what finally arrived! It’s pretty cool to have my piano in my house again – I’ve been picking tunes out all day. And I’m really looking forward to playing Christmas carols in a few weeks (and may have placed my Christmas sheet music at the top of the pile already).
You might remember that a few weeks ago I bought a small oval table at the Burlington Antique Show. With some, ahem, slightly outdated blue hydrangea stickers on the top, it wasn’t our style. But I liked the shape, and the size was a perfect fit between the two ivory chairs in our family room. So what better way to make it work than to whip up a diy side table makeover?
