While chilly December nights are commonplace in many parts of the world, they’re a bit rare in San Francisco! But we’re getting colder than normal temperatures right now and I’m loving it! It actually feels like the holidays.

I want to build a fire, pile on layers and cuddle up with a good book and a cup of hot tea. Thankfully, the Loft 2.0 has the perfect spot for me to do just that!

The new loft has an amazing window seat. It’s is long and wide and drenched in natural light. All I had to do was recover the cushions {natural linen with deep purple-y blue welting for the curious} and viola! Kinda perfect right?

So I was thrilled to team up with Calvin Klein Home to style this new oasis properly! I am pleased to present my new reading nook for the first-ever Loft Life edition of Live Here, Decorate with This!

Winter requirement number one? Snuggly throws. I’ve never met a blanket I didn’t like, but when you involve cashmere? Holy moly this takes relaxing to entirely new level! The Voyager Throw is so lightweight but still super warm. It’s the perfect layering piece.

And then there’s the waffle weaved Bryce Cashmere + Wool Throw. Seriously soft and totally gorge – it is the ultimate luxury. With those two throws wrapped around me I was as snug as a…well you know the rest.

Every girl also needs a little glamour, even when staying in your PJs all day. Nothing does that better than some hits of gold. I love the modern cut of the pillar gold candlestick {on sale!}. They have a very deco feel.

And the best part of being on vacation? Sipping pink bubbly while you lay back and relax – in the middle of the afternoon! The Halo Champagne Flutes are the perfect accompaniment for a party of one.

I’m so excited to have a little nest to cuddle into over the holidays. Now you’ll know where to find me!

I so hope you enjoyed our first sneak peek of the loft. There are a few more floating around on Instagram. Sadly, I can’t to reveal the whole thing until the new year, but you’ll get some bits here and there. So do stay tuned!!

In the meantime, here’s to finding moments of me-time this holiday season luvies!
