From Studio Guilbeau to your home, here is a little holiday winter layers shopping guide that will invite you to cozy up to the fire. My favorite way to get a little hygge warmth and cozy is to blend in some creamy neutral sherpa throws, knits and sheepskins, spiced up with a little warm color in tartans, Pendletons and bespoke patterns. A little color goes a long way for the entire winter season. You can pop out the colors with a red, green or ochre pillow or two closer to the holidays.
It is a soft stretchy tartan on the front, and a super soft and warm sherpa on the back side.
A perennial favorite of mine is tartan anything. I love warming up the for the fall and winter with soft, warm colors, such as ochre. Here is our Hans Wegner Shell Chair with a family favorite tartan sherpa throw I bought two years ago in celebration of the completion of our house addition. This Lodge Plaid Sherpa Back Throw by Pottery Barn – back by popular demand this fall.
And in honor of my recent trip to Ireland, I am featuring this yummy Irish wool tartan throw, from Kate Irish Tweed Store – in case anyone needs a holiday gift shopping hint for me.
For more tartan options, I’m absolutely loving the sustainably made selection from the Tartan Blanket Co.
“Perfect for draping at the end of a bed, it’s impossible to resist their warm invitation to rest your sleepy head.”
Another perennial favorite of mine is Pendelton blankets. This Pendleton sherpa throw is all I need to go from summer to winter on this blustery November day.
Before – My year long creamy neutral duvet & pillowcases with a sheepskin lumbar pillow. It’s ideal year round and particularly keeps us cool and covered throughout the summer.
After – Pendleton striped Sherpa throw across the foot of the bed. Immediately cozies up our bedroom for the wintertime. A touch of red mixed in with the earthy neutrals brings the holiday spirit.
I purchased this phenomenal Pendleton Sherpa throw from Pottery Barn a couple years ago. We received lots of compliments from friends, but alas, it was all sold out! Well this year it’s back by popular demand! And look at that dreamy cream colored one they’ve added to the collection. >> Shop Here
Love me a Pendleton throw all day!
You can always shop their online shop for a classic. Pick a more neutral one with a little bit of red and ochre for a winter long classic festivity feel.
Speaking of sherpa, I can’t get enough of these knitted on one side, sherpa on the other, throws. Ugg offers a well made cozy one, with excellent detailing.
Aran Sweater Market also features the famous Aran Diamond Stitch, symbolic of historic Irish farming fields, in a sumptuous throw for the bed or sofa.
To throw in a dash of color, consider mixing in throw pillows, in bespoke fabrics or more fuzzy sherpa (can’t get enough!)
This Peter Dunbar Zanzibar Throw Pillow by My Pillow Cover adds an unexpected dash of holiday spirit, but could also be used year round.
This Ugg Whitecap pillow adds a little festive red, without being overpowering. If you don’t want to be too Christmasy yet, consider using only red or green as your accent, but not both together – at least not til the day of!
And last but not least, treat yourself and guests to some high quality basics, in sheets and towels. Holiday shopping sales around the corner!
The LL Bean Pima Cotton sheets are the best on the market.
If you want a softer feel, consider a sateen, such as this well touted one from Wrinkle Guard.
And for a looser, lighter feel, and faster drying, the Riley Home Spa Towel is well made and long lasting.
