I have to admit: I have a weak spot for all things soft. Blankets, pillows, scarfs, fluffy hats or beanies… you name it. Fluffy lolcats = kryptonite.
It’s those little fluffy details that can make your home feel cozy. A bit of texture, color or patterns can do wonders for a room. Every room. From soft towels and a nice bathrobe in the bathroom, to a fun blanket on the couch, or a stack of dreamy pillows on your bed (to the annoyance of the boyfriend). It’s those things that make a house feel like a home. And it’s a good way to express yourself by adding your mark on a room.
So specially for you guys: some of my favorite soft stuff. Now we only need a bed and a couch to add ‘m. Oh yeah, and a finished apartment. #tinydetail
Oooh this Trenzas carpet… so so pretty! Add it to a living room and it makes a sitting area a whole lot cozier in the blink of an eye. Wouldn’t you agree? We have been looking for a nice carpet for quite a while now and spotting this beauty turned into an instant hit. Love at first sight. If we’ll actually be able to still afford it once our Home-To-Be project is getting closer to the finish line… That’s another story. ^^ Fingers crossed!
Blankets for the win
You have some of those homes where you can find a blanket anytime, anywhere. I hate to admit it, but we’re those people. First thing I (often) do when I come home after a long day at work is to jump in my PJs and relax for a few minutes on the couche with a blanket. Not because I’m cold, just because it’s a cozy feeling to wrap yourself into a cute blanket. And yes, this also happens when it’s quite hot outside. (Stop judging already!)
This grey one of Ferm Living is a blanket that I can see perfectly laying on our couch. Cool detail: there’s also a smaller version. Perfect for the little mini-you if you have one of those walking around. (Or several.)

“How many pillows can a human being own?” ~ the boyfriend. Uuh, I dunno, women just like to change things up once in a while I suppose. Just like we do with our wardrobe? And in our defense, they come in so many fun colors, prints and fabrics … It’s hard to resist those little clouds.
My all-time favorite remain the HAY ones. Pink and mint. Cute as a bun. These from Ferm Living at the other hand make sure you can add a little pop of color. The combination of the two seems entirely awesome and perfect.
Going to sleep in beautiful linen is always more fun. Some people prefer bright trendy colors, but personally I prefer soft neutral colors. Ideal for creating that relaxed atmosphere. To avoid it being boring, there are plenty of fun options. Nice geometric prints is one of them.
Do you also have such a weakness for all things soft? Or do you prefer clean and simple?
