Textiles to Warm Up Your Home

Textiles to Warm Up Your Home

When we talk about a home being "warm" it can mean a few different things—warmth might come from firey colors like reds and oranges, it may include layered or patterned textiles, or it can refer to a more elusive, hard-to-define quality that makes a home feel welcoming and cozy.

These things aren't mutually exclusive; they often go hand in hand. Mixing together textiles from different cultures, places, and shops can go a long way towards warming up a home, both literally and figuratively. Here are a few colorful, patterned throws, quilts, tablecloths, and rugs that we like.
