How is your week shaping up?
Over here the days are still warm, but the evenings are getting chillier and so we are finding all the winter woollies and hauling out down duvets and blankets, and all manner of snugly attire.
One of winter's indulgent buys has got to be throws. The sofas are being draped with wool, cashmere, faux fur and tartan. We are all anticipating lazy weekend afternoons curled up next to the fire with a glass of red, a book and a snugly throw. Wafting from the crock pot in the kitchen the enticing smell of dinner will be simmering, while we get on with the serious business of relaxing.
Under one of these maybe...?
There are loads of cable throws but this cream one is one my list for winter. Take a close look at the flower arrangement and the bowl of fruit for a splash of colour.
I'll be a snuggle bug in one of these, for sure...
All we need is right here. I'm not big on knitting but that bookshelf has me gasping to reach out and touch....
Every remaining sunny day in the Mother City is an opportunity for a picnic and these will do just fine. Loving the colours. One of my favourite things to watch is when everyone piles into Kirstenbosch, on a Sunday afternoon, for a sunset concert ... spreading their throws and picnic blankets, opening the wine and unpacking their gourmet delights. Sigh...
These add a wonderful splash of colour.
An open invitation...to sit a while and warm yourself....
I really love this paisley throw from OKA. The colour is all me!
A basket with a few of these in the living room will provide all the cosiness for a night in with old movies...
I know! You have probably seen this a few times in Blogland, but....it is so inviting and I could not resist it. Although the sofa would never have been a choice of mine it has most certainly stolen my heart and I would seriously consider it for the family room! That is one serious sofa!
Speaking of luxury...the throw and scatters below, are completely top of my snuggle charts!
And, of course all the details of the room is just perfection.
I sound like a broken record but again the colours are just gorgeous, especially the throw! Now, which wall can I paint black??
How do you feel about faux fur? I adore it but I can imagine some would not like it at all....?
Luxurious and Glamorous!
This image you have probably also seen, but take a closer look at the throws and appreciate the whole picture yet again....sighs are in order....
A throw on a sofa, chair or bed is an invitation to be seated or to lie down, to relax and get comfortable and take some "me" time.
Some of you are heading to summer and packing away all snuggely bits. Enjoy your warm season and we in the South, we will keep warm with a throw, a fire and some warm thoughts and memories of summer.
All the images are from Pinterest. Should you know the provenance of any image specifically, I would be most pleased to add it, so please advise me.
