Sweater Chic Warms Up Fall Interiors

Sweater season came early to Alabama this year. Most of the time, our September is essentially August 2.0: glowing, muggy and oppressively hot. This fall, however, we are being treated to a preview of crisp, cool weather, which usually doesn’t strike until Halloween. Recent mornings are so cold that we can see outside our breath, and I have been reaching for hot apple cider rather than sweet tea or lemonade.

Although I understand we are in for one more burst of baking warmth, this sneak peek of autumn has me stressed to snuggle into my cardigans and cable knits. In the meantime, I am basking in photographs of sweater accents around the home. Take a look at how these knit beauties cozy up their environment.

Petite cozies are keeping these plants toasty warm. This could be a great way to salvage a favorite sweater that has developed holes started to unravel. The button detailing is adorable.


A patchwork of knit squares stitched to a carpet adds an appealing layer of heat underfoot. Again, you can easily do so with tired sweaters — even with some picked up from a thrift shop.

What a darling display for a nursery school! Sweet baby sweaters include a little heart. Translate this idea to an adult distance by framing or hanging a stunning hand-knit pullover.


You can throw a cable-stitch throw onto the bed, but why don’t you go all the way and also make it a chunky knit disperse? The only drawback: It could be extra hard to get up on winter mornings.

Sweater pillows make this daybed tempting that I would have a hard time not grabbing a novel and curling up on the place.

Knit poufs are hot right now. This one, at a kids’ room, adds textural depth and a cuddly note to a restrained palette.


Knit-patterned carpet tiles bring the trompe l’oeil wow variable.


Tattered Chic Sweater Pendant Lamp

This bohemian take on the drum shade would match an eclectic room attractively. Or use it to rough up the borders of a more conventional space.

A hand-knit cover transforms a mod square ottoman to a homelike hassock.


Who says that your iPhone does not need its particular sweater? Pumpkin orange is pitch ideal for the season.
