It makes sense that so many taste makers strew sheepskin throws on the furniture. Whether it’s to reinforce the cozy in an already dressed down space, soften a room that’s bit too sleek, or add texture to a monochromatic palette, the shaggy skins are undeniably a nice touch.
I was immediately drawn to the gray sheepskins that are thrown over the chairs in the third photo down. I could do that, I thought. I had seen the curly gray versions at IKEA. They’d make the perfect touch on my new gray sofa in the family room. At once inviting and edgy. So tempting. Until I thought about it. How many times a day do I replace the pillows and blankets that litter the floor? Did I want to add to the chore? Not so much. Oh well.
Maybe it’d work on my all white bed. Who am I kidding? I don’t make my bed . . .

It’s getting rather chilly in Boston. Some days are perfect crisp autumnal wonders. Others just plain cold. While I will surely be dreaming of Caribbean getaways come February, I had this post put together already, so I thought I’d share it now. I am crazy crazy with work. Will catch up here with many thoughtful posts later next week. For now, make yourself a rum drink and dream of the Islands.
