As fall unfolds, there’s one home trend that keeps us all warm: cashmere. Drape your decor with soft, toasty cashmere. Whether folded over the back of the sofa or placed across the foot of the bed, cashmere throws lend their inviting touch to interior design and welcome guests with their exquisite comfort. Cashmere layers beautifully with other fall textures like faux fur, mohair, merino wool, and velvet.
We’ve teamed up with Jessica of My Style Vita to reveal some simple tips to create a cozier home with cashmere — some you may have heard of and others entirely new to spark inspiration.
Temperatures are dropping and nights are getting cooler. With this comes the need for extra layers on your bed. Here are a few simple steps to cozy up the bedroom.
STEP ONE: Add a warm blanket to the foot of your bed. It adds dimension to your decor and you can unfold it for an extra layer when you need it.
STEP TWO: Accessorize with rich textures like velvet pillows. This is a quick tip to instantly transform your room from summer to fall.
STEP THREE: Add an unexpected cashmere accent by draping your cashmere throw over your headboard. It adds a touch of coziness to the room and of course, it’s easy to grab when you need it.
And don’t stop at your decor. You can step up your loungewear with a luxurious cashmere robe, cashmere socks, and cozy slippers.
Draping a cashmere throw on even the most modern of armchairs creates a cozy corner. Look for unique ways to drape — like underneath the cushion — to create a stylish accent that doubles as a functional layer for warmth.
STEP ONE: Remove the cushion of your chair and drape the cashmere throw over the back of the chair. Smooth out the throw to make sure it’s even and hangs over the front the chair. This will act as your base layer. Place your cushion back on.
STEP TWO: Take another cashmere throw or blanket to add a double layer. This adds depth and allows you to play with different colors.
STEP THREE: Add textured pillows to accent the armchair and create an inviting place to snuggle up with a book.
To complete your reading nook, try layering a sheepskin rug over an existing rug to add depth, texture, and warmth.
