Fashion for your home and for you

Are you, like me, a big fan of cozy cuddled up evenings with a glass of perfectly chilled rosé in front of a sizzling fire or a nice old black and white movie (well, ok, I confess I tend to go for more scary movies)? Or maybe you’re more likely to sit on your patio watching a sunset with a nice cup of tea? In either case, I think you’ll need something to cuddle up in, something soft, warm and stylish. If you haven’t heard about Carolyn Parker, then you’re missing out.

Not only can Carolyn Parker provide the finest quality 100% cashmere, The Cashmere Collection is expertly manufactured in the UK by Joshua Ellis and inspired by the beautiful Yorkshire countryside. You have several colours to chose from, something that suits every kind of person. I’ve personally fallen for the Muscat Houndstooth Throw. It has the right depth of colour with the added chic-ness of houndstooth print, something that I can easily see myself all wrapped up in, watching my horror movie.

For the men, you have something with a more masculine Ralph Lauren look, created with a mix of leather, plaids and deeper colours. However, I think my favourite piece out of them all would be the Luxury Cashmere Serapes. This could be one of the best things to cuddle up in or wear instead of a cardigan. I’d wrap one of these around me over my LBD instead of a coat or maybe on a more casual day with my dark blue skinny jeans a simple top, brown knee high boots and then add the Muscat Houndstooth Serape. Yes, I love the houndstooth version and the size is perfect with its 137cm x 180cm! This will keep you warm and looking very chic, what else is needed?

So now we have a soft and warm throw or maybe you don’t need to cover up completely and you’re happy with a beautiful serape, but this is not all the company offer. When sitting on that couch of yours enjoying good company, you’ll need extra comfort and something chic at that. You need to add some nice stylish cushions of course. I’d go for a mix of the Bespoke Bolster and a few of the Fawn Cushions – and probably add a monogram on one to make it extra stylish. The good thing about these cushions is that they don’t pill or produce those annoying little balls. This because they’re made from long length cashmere fibers that creates a softer feel and a more radiant look.

There we go, you’re all set for a cozy night in, or a chic dinner out with your serape. Visit the Carolyn Parker website for details and more lovely ideas!
