This weekend I challenge you to find alternate uses for the blankets, quilts and throws.

As you may not need them for heat in the upcoming months, they can definitely serve an alternate function as room decoration.

Choose a peachy cashmere throw for a subtle touch of colour and a bit of indulgence that is everyday.
