Baby, It’s Cold Outside

October 8, 2009 | By | Comments (2)

Ever year around mid-October I start complaining about the cold. This year I’m looking to beat the chill (and follow runway trends) with chunky knit and fur accents for my home.

Here’s what I’ve been looking at this afternoon.

I found both of these images (above and below) on The Style Files. I love the crocheted look—reminds me of my favorite knit scarf I’d like to have around my neck right about now. You can find more info about the pouffe here, and more info about the wood raffia stool here.



Something about this faux sheepskin pouf from West Elm
really appeals to me. It’s large enough to accommodate cast-offs when
you’re too tired to hang up your clothes (not that this ever
happens to
anyone), but small enough to not take up too much space in a small
room. Better yet? It’s portable, which is essential for those of us who
have difficulty committing to pieces of furniture.

If it’s flooring you seek, there’s also this faux sheepskin rug.


If you really crave comfort, then this blanket is essential for you. Everyone in my family
has a Kashwère throw. We—pets included—frequently fight over them. They’re super warm yet breathable and withstand frequent washings. In short, they’re worth every penny.


This year, Pottery Barn turned your warmest sweater into a comfy throw pillow.


They also created an incredibly soft fisherman blanket and sham for those
in need of added layers for your bed.

Do you guys have any other suggestions?
