“It’s oversized, it's linen, and it's neutral — which allows you to mix and match it with just about any style. Use it on your bed as a Euro sham, on your couch to anchor a collection of pillows, or even on the floor as a cushion (if sitting on the floor is, you know, your kind of thing).”

“This is just the right size to throw a big maiden leaf fern in and pop it onto your coffee table; or if you don't have the greenest thumb, then use it as a fruit bowl on your dining table or kitchen counter. Any piece that can be used for more than one purpose is my kind of piece.”

“Vintage Moroccan throws continue to be all the rage, and there's a reason why. They quickly dress up a bed, couch, or the back of a chair, but their price tags can get pretty hefty. This tassel blanket gives you that look without breaking your bank.”

“I just love this affordable woven wall hanging. The bohemian trend of textured wall hangings doesn’t seem to be going anywhere soon, and I love the deep blues and tasseled texture of this one. I’d happily hang this in my hallway as a part of a textured vignette of art — plus the navy would work perfectly in my own home!”
