Now when temperature is slowly dropping, and fall is around the corner – I feel the urge to move more indoors. I want to warm-up and cozy up inside. Switch out the “summer” look with new fall stuff. The trick for me is usually adding a few new pillows, bring out the warm comfy blankets and my sheepskin throws, the candles and sitting in front of the fireplace. Today I wanted to show you my fall picks.
The sheepskin throw is probably a very Nordic thing and super common in Sweden and used a lot, especially during fall and winter. Today you can get `look a likes` in other materials but I prefer the real thing (preferably made from Gotland)). I remember using it in the baby stroller during cold and snowy winter months to keep my baby girls warm (remember, most Swedes leave their babies outside to sleep – regardless if its minus minus). I still have that particular one from my first child (going on 18 years now but still looking great!). High quality wins in the end. Nowadays I throw them on chairs and sofas. A nice piece to ad to any furniture (old or modern). It gives it that warm fuzzy but still cool look.
Some like the sheepskin throws cut short and some prefer the long fuzzy look. I honestly love both and in my opinion you cannot have to many…..
The combo of a sheepskin throw in front of a fireplace, well thats just a perfect mix in my world. I feel super lucky to have had fireplaces in several of our homes, it is truly something we use a lot and often – so I look extra forward to fall! We plan on adding one to our house in Mölle, it will not be one of the open one + more like this one below,
Another key fall ingredient is the blanket and throw, cant survive a fall without them! I picky, its gotta be a large comfy one (no itchy wool anymore, done with those).
I would not mind throwing out the classic Hermes blanket on one of my sofas. Its truly my old time favorite but then again dont really feel I want or could pay the full price. After all, its the same price as a trip around the world :).
Now over to one of my all time cravings – candles. Friends usually make fun of me for all my candles, they believe I am part of a candle sect :). I lit candles any evening of the week, all year around! Its just so magical and relaxing. I am pretty sure I inherited this obsession from my dear mother. When it comes to candles I prefer the simple candle holders and just the white colored candles. Here are a few of my picks!
Want to finish of with my absolute favorite at the moment (below) that I am hoping I will be able to hang on our entrance & hallway wall in Mölle around Christmas this year. Lets hope Santa reads this blog of mine!
I have to leave you with that – need to pick up some delicious fish for tonight´s dinner.
Enjoy this beautiful week.
