Cozying Up

By | Bedding, Fashion, seasonal interiors, textiles | No Comments

Winter is almost officially here! It’s that time of year when we pull out the extra blankets & throws, and layer like crazy! Finally – the sheet, blanket, duvet, and throw isn’t too much on our beds ;)  And, nothing looks more beautiful than all of those soft, cozy textures…

Some of us do a complete changeover, others merely add to our existing solid cotton, or linen duvet covers and sheets. Pinecone Hill has some great basics, like these stonewashed linen covers.  I have my eye on this faux fur throw from West Elm for the bottom of my bed.  This is also the season to be mad for plaid! In my opinion, Ralph Lauren does it best, keeping it modern and warm.

Cozy up- the snow is on it’s way!

Adding Texture

By | Food for thought, textiles, Uncategorized | No Comments

Texture is an important element when designing a space, whether it’s smooth and sleek, or more rough and varied. These are some examples that we have used in our client’s interiors recently to create a warm, more casual feel for their vacation home.  The woven shade on Currey & Company’s pendant, Palecek’s swivel woven stools, and the herringbone wool bedroom carpet. When you are working with a neutral palette, it’s especially important to layer a variety of textures in elements like wood and textiles chosen for furnishings, bedding and window coverings. I think we have succeeded in creating an inviting and relaxing escape!
