“Cozy textiles work really well on accents—like pillows, throws, and small ottomans—that can be switched in and out seasonally. I love ringing them in with the fall weather and keeping them around until spring.”

“I like to use natural textures in a variety of ways and in combination with other textiles to create a layered composition. Unexpected accents, like fabric-covered walls, make a real impact, but even everyday items like your sofa can be dressed in a textural mohair fabric to add a cozy feeling to your space.”
