Warm & Cozy

It's my season! I love autumn.



It's my season! I love autumn. I love the change in colors, the change in produce and, especially, the change in clothes. Sweater weather is my jam, and I can't get enough of layering. Bring on the sweaters, blazers, jackets and coats! But layering isn't just about the way you're dressed; it's about the way your house is dressed as well. Time to pull out the blankets, quilts and throws. Is there anything cozier than piling on the blankets and nesting in bed or on the couch? Might as well look good while you do it!

Mod blanket (Bohem)

The Mod blanket, $108, Bohem (623 S. State, 385-202-7517, Bohem.com) brought an instant smile with its whimsical circles and hand stitching. This is a lighter-weight blanket, perfect for throwing on top of a down comforter and snuggling in bed.

Another treasure I stumbled upon at Bohem was the handmade Moroccan-wool blanket, $228 (pictured at bottom). You'll welcome the chilly days and nights when you're protected by this hand-dyed, pompommed heat preserver. The soft blue lines undulate like warm ocean waves, and your home will thank you for the high style.

The Kloverart coverlet, $198, at Anthropologie (City Creek Center, 801-456-0431, Anthropologie.com) is made from beautifully embroidered cotton and is machine washable. (Two bulldogs call me Mom, so I'm a sucker for anything that can be tossed in the washing machine.) This quilt feels like something your grandmother might have made (or at least bought) for you. Are Netflix and the couch calling your name yet?

The Yves Delmore velvet blanket in coral, $835, from Details Comforts for the Home (1987 S. 1100 East, 801-364-8963, DetailsComforts.com) is the epitome of style and luxury. I couldn't take my eyes, or my hands, off it. The color, the texture, the shimmer—you may never leave home again!

It's autumn, and the evenings are cool. Hang up your coat, gloves and scarf for the night. Stay in instead—it's so warm and cozy at home!
