This week on Pinterest we’ve been?learning how to make a minimalistic living space feel snug.

We’re in the midst of that awkward transition between summer and autumn at the moment, which makes?temperature-appropriate dressing’difficult (unless you have a light coat that will’serve you nicely for the next two weeks, before becoming completely redundant until late spring). In terms of our homes, it’s almost equally confusing – while it’s too early to go full-on shearling, we can’t help craving a few warmer touches all the same.
