Curl Up Under a Cozy Throw

Comfy, Warm and Gorgeous

by: Sarah Gunn

There is nothing better to do on a cold day than curl up on the couch with a warm blanket and a good book, a great movie, or if I am really honest, a trashy reality TV show. I am rarely on the couch without a throw blanket, even in the summer. Not only are they comfy and warm, throw blankets are a simple and inexpensive way to introduce texture, pattern and colour to a space.

Here are my top 7 picks for gorgeous, cozy throws:

1. NuBe Green Eco Striped Throw $85.00

\"\"

2. Dwell Studio Vintage Blossom Chocolate Throw $320.00
 

\"\"

3. NuBe Green Houndstooth Throw $135.00

\"\"

4. Pottery Barn Cable-knit Throw $102.52

\"\"

5. Anthropologie Quirky Heirloom Throw $198.00
 

\"\"

6. West Elm Cozy Throw $74.00

\"\"

7. Crate and Barrel Hailey Shadow Throw $99.99

\"\"

I love all of these but I have to say the Dwell Studio one is my favourite {don’t tell my credit card}. Which one can you picture draped on your couch?

Decorating For Fall

Use Nature As Your Inspiration

by: Sarah Gunn

I hate this time of year. It’s not that I hate fall so much as I hate the end of summer. But, I do love any opportunity to refresh the décor in my home. The soft yellows, reds and oranges of the changing leaves are perfect for adding some colour to your space. Not sure how to bring autumn colours inside? Leaf it to me….I found some gorgeous inspiration in my favourite place on the internet: Pinterest.

And my favourite way to decorate with leaves? Leaves you can eat!
