Cozy Up with Textured Accessories

Textured accessories bring warmth to your home, without adding bulk or clutter

With the holidays long gone but the chill still in the air, we’ve been missing the extra bit of oomph that our decorations brought to the home. To combat this decorating fatigue (plus the chilly temperatures), we’re focusing on textures around the house. Extra throw blankets in knubby woven wools, pillows finished in soft fringe, and woven textures, like a big catch-all basket.


We love the way our velvet drapes take a room to a super luxe place, but in go-with anything colors like gray and sand, they don’t feel overly fussy. Velvet drapes also make an exceptional curtain fabric in winter because their thick weave blocks drafts from coming in through the windows! We call it a win win!

Throw blankets are obviously a must this time of year. Bring in a cozy new blanket that can easily transition with you from room to room, like our Wiltern Knit Throw. Super soft wool in a soft cream feels so soft and comforting, as does the nostalgic ribbed weave!

Is it possible to have too many pillows in a bedroom or family room? We think not! A couple of cream pillows with a soft but sassy fringe are an easy way to take your current pillow rotation to a new level. Blend them in with your existing favorites, the extra softness will make your sofa or bedroom even more inviting than it already is!


Small woven accessories can add a lot in the way of texture to a space. Our woven lamp shades are a favorite because of their casual, unexpected look!

A storage basket can serve two purposes, both decorative and functional. Use it to stash all of your kids’ toys when company comes over, or use it to hold your old magazines! We’re drawn to our Newport Braided Baskets for its sturdy construction and large size, but any kind of woven basket or tray will bring that same laid-back, textural feel.

By focusing on lots of different fabrics, (we can’t seem to get enough velvet!) all in different textures, as well as woven pieces, you’ll bring an added coziness to your space that will help you survive the winter months.
