Turkish Towels {Day 7: Loving Fall}

Turkish Towel as Tablecloth

Every fall one of my most favorite things to do as the air turns crisp is adding layers to my decor. I love finding ways to cozy things up and add visual interest. You might have spotted a few of these additional layers in some of my rooms, the Turkish towels on the backs of sofas or laying across my dining table. Turkish towels are traditionally hand-woven on looms for use in Turkish baths. I didn’t get mine in Turkey and I don’t use mine for the bath!

Turkish Towel Over a Sofa - The Inspired Room

I love Turkish towels for adding layers to just about anything from sofas and chairs, footstools to tables. The towels are very thin and flat, but durable. Perfect for anywhere you want a splash of softness, color or pattern! I found my turkish towels at a local flea market, the same place I got my new rattan bookshelf.

Turkish Style Towel in the Kitchen

I also have a towel in my kitchen that resembles the look of a Turkish towel. You can find this one here!

Here are some other fun ideas for layering or displaying turkish towels (besides using them as towels, of course):

-at the end of a bed

-as a lightweight picnic blanket

-laying over the edge of a bathtub

-hanging on a wall

-draped over a stair railing

Over the weekend we had a wind and rain storm here in the Seattle area. I don’t mind storms, if I’m safe inside. But for part of it, we were riding across Puget Sound from Seattle on the ferry and I’ll admit I was a wee bit scared!

The waves were crashing up against the boat and over the lower deck where we were parked. The ferry was rocking and riding the waves and salt water was splashing on our car in the darkness. All I could think of was how I couldn’t wait to make it home to our safe and warm nest!

When we arrived home, it was pitch black outside and inside. Our power was out. We ran around lighting candles so we could see to find our way to our cozy beds for the night. It was so good to be home!

Lighting candles when it gets dark outside is a fall ritual I really love, even when it isn’t stormy out (but especially when it is!).
