Danish architect and designer Finn Juhl “thought of color as an emotional trigger, just like a painter would. These emotional color triggers can be found throughout the home, some are very subliminal (the red wall in the living room, for instance), or the blue paint wrapped around the windows,” says John Baker of Toronto-based store Mjölk, who recently toured the architect’s house during a trip to Copenhagen.

Mohair blankets are photo-shoot stylists’ secret weapons. “Whenever I’m on a shoot, the one prop I cannot live without is a mohair throw,” writes Alexa. “Mohair, woven from angora goat and wool, has a great texture. You can toss it on the end of a bed or over the arm of a sofa and it falls just right and scrunches even better. Plus, mohair is dyed in the best colors: chalky grey, vegetal green, or not-too-millennial pink.” See her favorite sources for mohair blankets in this week’s 10 Easy Pieces post.
