4 ways to wrap yourself in cashmere

A cashmere wrap is a must-have for cooler months. It’s easy to travel with and a beautiful accessory that completes a fall outfit.

That said, we often receive questions on how to tie a wrap. So we went to Jessica of My Style Vita for ideas. Check out the four ways to wrap yourself in cashmere.


1. The Belted Wrap


Step 1: Drape the wrap over your shoulders.
Step 2: With the central notch at the nape of your neck, let the panels hang down at your sides. Make sure the wrap hangs even on both sides.
Step 3: Fasten the belt over the wrap at your natural waist for a belted cape look.


2. The Side Knot


Step 1: Fold your wrap in half width wise.
Step 2: Drape over your neck with one side panel short and the other long.
Step 3: Wrap twice around the neck with the long panel.
Step 4: Make a knot.
Step 5: Slide the knot to the side of your neck and shoulder.


3. The Pretzel


Step 1: Fold your wrap in half widthwise. Then fold in half lengthwise.
Step 2: Drape over your neck.
Step 3: Take one panel and loop it through the loop.
Step 4: Twist the loop one time.
Step 5: Pull through the remaining panel.
Step 6: Tug to tighten the knots.
Step 7: Adjust knots to make sure they’re front and center.


4. The One Shoulder Drape


Step 1: Drape the wrap open over your shoulders.
Step 2: One panel must be shorter than the other.
Step 3: Take the longer panel and twist one time.
Step 4: Drape the twisted panel across the opposite shoulder.

5 instant updates for a summer home

Garnet Hill Cape House Quilt
The onset of warmer weather compels us to throw open the windows, shed some layers, and find quick, easy updates to bring the sunshine into our homes and lives. We seek to catch that casual, carefree vibe of beach vacations and weekend getaways with our everyday surroundings. To achieve this, here are some trends, treasured finds, and design ideas to help you embrace summer in your decor.

1. THINK WHITE, THINK LIGHT, THINK BRIGHT

Garnet Hill Seersucker Duvet Cover
There’s nothing like a fresh coat of white paint. It’s like visual sorbet, a palette cleanser for the eye. White can be brilliant and stark or warm and cozy based on the shade. It draws and reflects light, and is an ideal backdrop for bright colors to pop.

2. THE CHROMATIC QUILT

In an all-white room, a vibrant quilt is elevated to artwork. Holding its own as a focus point in the room, its intricate patterns and stitching make bold statements. A vivid rug or large-scale painting can have a similar effect in the space.

3. HAPPY COTTAGE STRIPES

Variegated stripes on a rug, bars of color on storage bins… Classic yet casual, jaunty woven stripes add pops of color and pattern to the decor, and they add the carefree look of a beachside cabana to the room.

4. GOING THE EXTRA NAUTICAL MILE

It is easy to go nautical this time of year, but it’s difficult to do it well. Mini prints and hooked wool pillow covers lend icon motifs to the room design, but think of adding more subtle notes to finish the look. Rustic textured glass, weathered wood, sea-grass baskets all balance out a seafaring scene with a touch of sophistication.

5. TAKE A GARDEN SEAT

Curvaceously shaped and brightly glazed, this versatile table-stool mimics the look of an oversized planter that one on might find on the veranda of a luxurious beachside resort. It makes a lively, sculptural statement positioned by the bed as a nightstand or next to an easy chair as a side table on the porch.

6. IT’S A JUNGLE BOTANICAL PRINT OUT THERE
