Warm up with on-trend knits, velvet and more!
Embellish a simple pillow by stitching a wool braid into a stylized monogram or trim a casual linen throw with cashmere embroidery for a custom look. Tailored wool drapes and an upholstered headboard mimic dapper men’s suiting, grounding the bedroom’s saturated teal walls.
Instead of storing beautiful angora, cashmere and wool throws in a chest of drawers, hang them in an entryway or a hallway for guests to grab and wrap themselves in on cool days.
Juxtapose grey, blue and cream yarn with warm wood, leather and metal finishes. Wrap yarn around aged spools, and display balls of wool, cashmere and angora in chic glass boxes.
A modern sofa has understated elegance upholstered in the softest charcoal-coloured wool and layered with luxe cashmere pillows. An over-dyed wool rug and jewel-toned accessories inject subtle colour, while a small shearling pelt draped on the seat of the mid-century-modern chair add playful texture.
Get inspired by knitters and their craft. Frame wool in three stages of production: unspun, on spools and as a cable-knit swatch. For a gallery vibe, fill a large acrylic box with raw wool and showcase the other two in smaller minimalist white shadowboxes, mounting the spools on wool matting for added interest. Hang the different-sized frames in an asymmetrical trio above a desk or console. Looking for a swatch? Use a worn-out sweater.
Layers of soft and sumptuous blankets instantly take a room into winter. A monochromatic palette looks timeless and lets textures take the spotlight.
A chunky knit wool pendant lamp with its vibrant red cord sets the tone for this principal bedroom. Knit pillow covers and a cosy throw continue the woolen theme. For a hit of quirky holiday cheer, designer Sophie Burke fashioned a unique, organic-shaped wreath for above the bed using branches, berries and a wide, grey ribbon.
Panels of burlap flank this fireplace as a cheap and easy paint alternative. Leave edges raw for a casual look, and attach with clear thumbtacks. A stack of logs offers a cabin vibe while velvet throw pillows and gold metal accents provide additional warmth. Excited for the holidays? Lay a simple cedar bough across a mantel.
