Marketplace: Blankets

Now that my living room has been painted, new blinds have been installed, and new furniture has made it into the space, I’m now in the market for some accessories. Namely, blankets.¬†We have about 3 more months of winter which means…brr…we have a few more months of chilly weather. My existing blankets are brown (that go very well with my teak furniture) but I think a light grey or cream would look much better with the Ikat pillows that I have on my couch. Since I can’t afford a gorgeous Herm√®s blanket (oh so pricey!), I’ve set my sights on some more affordable options.

Do you have a fireplace? Does it start with logs and a match or do you flip a switch?
