How is it that we always seem to go from summer to fall so quickly here in Minnesota?
One day it’s 92 degrees and humid, and the next it’s blustery and 55.
Well, on the bright side, it makes it easy for us to jump into fall decorating with gusto.
We actually need gorgeous wool blankets to ward off the chill on these crisp fall nights.
But even if we didn’t, they are still perfect for adding a touch of fall to your decor this time of year.
You can just drape one over a chair on your three season porch …
Or use one in place of a tablecloth to set a lovely autumn table.
Of course you can always just add a couple of throws to your sofa or chairs to instantly warm up the feel of your living room like our vendor Amy did.
I can’t think of a simpler way to add a little fall coziness to your bedroom, can you?
So many of the vintage plaid throws come in the perfect colors for fall. I love the idea of just displaying them on a ladder where they can be easily grabbed if you need to warm up a bit.
Years ago my husband and I visited Copenhagen in early spring and we were delighted to find that many of the cafe’s had outdoor seating that was open despite the cooler weather. They just provided a cozy wool blanket with every chair. It was so fabulous sitting there with a glass of wine, wrapped in that blanket, just watching the people go by.
What a great way to extend the patio season just a little bit longer! I’m still holding off on putting my patio set away for winter, how about you?
If you don’t happen to have a few vintage plaid wool throws on hand, you should stop in to the shop. We have a few of them scattered about, plus some great pieces that are upholstered in plaids.
As always, our inventory moves quickly so stop in soon for the best selection!
