this week my wants may make you feel a bit like hibernating. it’s breezy and brisk here in san francisco, and i feel a lot like hunkering down with good books, comforting comforters, and creating some restful retreats from the world. i loved building forts when i was a little, and i kinda still do. i want an escape! so, here’s a few ideas.
1. first off, i’ve been dying to build myself an indoor reading teepee, and the always crafty and talented rachel denbrow of smile and wave offers us up a tutorial to do just that! 2. i think the remix blanket has a geometric motif that fits quite well in my modern-day teepee. 3. as do these cozy throw pillows, both from ferm living.
4. would it be redundant (or even feasible) to hang one of these le beanock modern hammocks in my teepee? ‘cuz i’d sure like to! if not, i’ll find another cozy spot inside. 5. this quirky heirloom throw from anthropologie will add a nice homemade warm and fuzzy feeling to my fort. 6. and these anthropologie driftwood hurricane lamps will give off a nice natural glow in my reading area.
7. i can’t always be in my teepee and love this canopy creation i saw on mood, and would love to make one of my own. so dreamy. 8. i think i’ll toss a warm and wooly wood throw from donna wilson into the mix, just for fun. 9. is it so wrong to keep a cowhide papa stour flask in my retreat? i think not. 10. lastly, i think it’s a brilliant idea to add a few lina rennell sheepskin throws from beklina just for good measure. like i said, this is one fine place to hunker down!
