How To: Make Your Home Feel Warmer This Fall and Winter

How To Make Your Home Feel Warmer This Fall and Winter
As you know by now, we are all about color, texture, warmth and style. Some say, this is our season! We recently came across an article in "Home & Garden" magazine that gave six steps to making your interior space cozier and fall-proof, and wanted to show you examples of how to accomplish these stylish tips. As shown in the list, an easy solution to beating the cold is making your home and space just a little bit warmer with colors, textures, and materials. So bundle up and read below!

Six tips from Home and Garden:

1. Dress up an already popular interior color, gray, with lighter gray tones, charcoals, and metallic. Our gold metallic cowhide rug and gray block patch pattern hide are good options to add more texture and color variation to your floor. For the bed, a leather textile pillow or a metallic leather square pattern pillow adds a fun and unique touch more so than your everyday pillow.

2. Change out current textiles for warmer colors and textures such as wool and colors of earthy tones like clay red, sandy brown, and moss green. Try out our vintage textiles from Northern Argentina, each has different patterns and vibrant colors. They look amazing used as a throw, blanket or rug. Our gold plush shearling rug, is another way to warm up a cold room.

3. Place throws or blankets in your room rich in fall colors, such as burnt orange, wine burgundy, or chocolate brown. Our alpaca wool herringbone weave throws come in great colors. You can use them on a sofa, chair, or at the foot of a bed. For a warmer throw, our nutria fur throw in rich deep brown comes trimmed in leather and our shearling throw , made of sheared sheep fur cannot be beat for warmth and texture.

4. Sw
itch up textures and materials and try ones such as fur or suede. Our popular Patagonia sheepskin stools are a great, comfortable option for seating and our alpaca fur or suede pillow add a cozy warm feeling to any environment.

5. The glow of a lit candle adds a taste of winter sensation, they can add fall scents and a warm lifting mood. According to the article "Metallic candles can add a sense of luxury." We recommend taking it a step further and checking out our silver candlesticks adorned with natural horn, bone and even ostrich eggs. They are all one-of-a-kind, and besides adding some warmth, they are always noticed and good conversation pieces. Below are our alpaca silver candlesticks with horn and ostrich egg accents.


6. For those of you who have a fireplace, make a statement using buckets or pots to hold the firewood. If you don't have one, you can always place Birchwood inside for decoration. Our colorful ceramic glazed pots are a great complement to the more rustic looking wood.




How's that for color, texture, warmth and style! Guaranteed to take the edge off winter! You my never want to leave your home!

Home Tour: Alejandro Sticotti’s Buenos Aires Oasis

Alejandro Sticotti is a devoted modernist who is addicted to the “natural materials, clean spaces, less is more” approach in both his furniture and building designs. After living an accomplished life with his wife, Hernaez, the couple bought a 5,400-square-foot garden outside one of the houses they were considering. After landing the sale, they set out to fulfill a lifelong dream--designing their own dream home from scratch! Slowly, after much thought, the concept of their house came together; they were building a home floating in a garden, which was not an easy task.

“I try to use simple, honest materials. I don’t like paint or plaster; I prefer to leave things as they come, and show how things are made.”

The construction uses primarly recycled materials from the local region. This helps support the local economy and keeps sourcing costs low. Inside the home there are floors of recycled pine, walls paneled in full sheets of recycled plywood, and slats salvaged from an old house in La Boca. Sticotti provided a majority of the home's decorative flourishes including a scattering of design icons—wire Bertoia chairs and a pair of cowhide-covered butterfly chairs, invented in 1939 by three Buenos Aires designers—which are a plethora of classic products.

“Reflecting that economic and architectural climate, as well as Sticotti’s own aesthetic leanings, the finished house is very much “of Argentina,” as he says. “People always say that Buenos Aires is like a European city [because of the baroque architecture and Italian heritage], but at the same time, we have our own culture, our own materials. This house is all B.A. In a way, I was trying to find something that represents us—and what we’ve got here is leather and wood and concrete.”



This building style has set a new design direction for South America as they inspire themselves as well as the rest of the world with their efficiency, use of recycled materials, and space saving innovation, all representing the newest modern design language.
