there's nothing that makes winter more official than pulling on a super comf cable knit sweater or a pair of pretty knitten mittens. which i may totally be doing either/both today - it's only 31 degrees in austin right now! brrr...
for today's design vs. fashion we're warming up interiors with cozy cable knit accessories. cable knits can beautify and warm up a space with lots of plush texture, subtle weightiness and soothing colors. feel free to get wrapped up in these toasty entwined translations!
