Mixtures of color, pattern, and texture

The Bay Area experienced a cold snap a couple weeks ago, and ever since, I’ve been really digging the simplicity, coziness, and versatility of a good knit. And not just knit clothing. Vibrant colors make dreary and sunny days brighter. The mix of textiles, color, and patterns temporarily tames my wanderlust with a worldly, traveled vibe. A few inspirations:
