The Art Institute of Chicago has many lovely items available from their museum shop website. With cooler weather on the way, I thought it would be fun to match up some of their warm scarves/shawls and throws as a color-coordinated way to stay cozy this fall. Here are three ideas:
1) The silk crepe Red Gingko Leaf Scarf ($85) and hand-woven wool and silk Leopard Print Throw ($130) are awash in rich autumnal hues of red, rust, and gold, and both exude an exotic feel.
2) Bold botanical images on a black background characterize the opulent silk Exotic Garden Shawl ($160) and the rich cotton Exotic Garden Throw ($125). Both are based on Kurt Seligmann's Exotic Garden painting found in the Art Istitute of Chicago's permanent collection.
3) Shades of grey, blue, and purple are common to both the wool and silk Modern Infinity Scarf (on sale for $101.99) and the wool/cotton blend Paisley Throw ($240). What a perfect blend of modern with traditional!
These wraps for you and your home are just a few of the many available from the museum shop, so check them out for yourself to find your own favorite color combinations!
