I have a ridiculous passion for blankets. And a huge collection... it's my guilty pleasure. It is a bit odd, I know, but I can't help it. They serve for two main purposes - aesthetic and comfort. I love it when those two can be combined.
During the summer months, when there is no use for blankets, my home looks and feels so empty (yeah, I put them away) and it is always such a nice feeling when autun comes and I get to take them out again.
I can change the interior quite a bit just by changing the blankets, it's, just as cushions, such a handy design tool.
