Mood Board Monday: (Fair) Isle be Home for Christmas

Let’s be fair (isle)…

Okay, that’s probably all the puns we can stick into this post for today.  But seriously, let’s talk about fair isle and how it could be design inspo for your home.  You know, those sweaters family’s get hoodwinked into wearing this time of year.  Or the sweaters that look super cute and darling on kids?  (I may or may not have purchased this for August this year!).

I mean, cute for kids, cute for sweaters, but a house?  Yes.

Paired with a simple backdrop, you can incorporate many fair isle sweater pillows into every room, or go bolder.

Like a custom stair riser project (we have even hopped on board with this trend):

Or this awesome wallpaper.

A bold statement, paired with beautiful woodwork and architecture, make us want to stay in and stay cozy.  Or add a cozy rug down to soften and warm up your space, like this one:

Either way, you can find inspiration anywhere, and during this (cold) time of year, look to your closet.  There’s a reason why some pieces are classics, just like the fair isle sweater.  These additions to your home can be accents, or permanent.  Either way, add some texture, and some hygge to your home this year.
