For much of the globe, December weather is terribly frightful, with cold winds, grey skies, and even the occasional white-out blizzard. But that also makes the perfect opportunity to savor time at home, out of the elements and in front of a warming fire, glass of rich Bordeaux in hand. Adding to the allure are fashionable accessories and decorative accents crafted from sumptuous textiles that offer a cozy cocoon from winter’s worst. Whether you’re looking for a last-minute gift or a holiday treat for yourself, these decadent pieces are sure to be a welcome addition to anyone’s collection.
