Winter has settled into our bones and homes, making it’s way into every corner. I can personally say that on some wintery, rainy days the pull of a warm blanket and a good book is stronger than that of the town, and so these past few days I’ve found myself wrapped up in luxurious throws and surrounded by a mound of cushions.
Splashing out on new pillows, throws and blankets is a lovely way to welcome in the new season. Experiment with some wintery tones like the very on-trend grey, duck egg blue or ivory. If your home needs a warmer touch then consider copper or red wine hues to remind you of old fireplaces and mulled wine.
Of course, the tactile experience of nestling into throws is just as important as aesthetics. Think knitted materials, velvet or Mongolian cashmere like these soft throws from Sydney brand IN BED available at Coco Republic.
No one can deny the gorgeous feeling of fur, but design aside, I cannot bring myself to have it in my house. If you feel the same, yet yearn for the soft touch to make its way into your space, you may be interested in Coco Republic’s small range of ethically sourced reindeer furs. These are imported (with great care) from Sweden, where the furs are in fact a bi-product of the food industry - the perfect combination of style and ethics, if I do say so myself...
So next time the winter winds creep through your home, ward them off with beautiful throws. I for one can admit a love for being surrounded by beautiful items that also serve to keep the chill at bay.
