Product love | Pia Wallen cross/crux blanket

The Pia Wallen Crux and Cross blankets (one the wollen original and the other a less expensive version) - they are everywhere. I've been meaning to do a post on it ever since I received my very own for Christmas. It works so well with my absolute favourite black and white combination and today I thought I would bring you a whole bunch of inspiration for how to use the throw, as well as some of my favourite complementary black and white products on the market at the moment (see moodboard below). The best part is that because it is reversible you are really getting two blankets in one! It also comes in other colours, for those who are not quite as obsessed with black and white as me. And there is also an adorable pint sized one for the little people in your world. Available from Story North


And finally, here's a shot of my own bedroom :) Poor photography but it was taken before I went to bed one night. Need to try and get a better photo of it in daylight one day. But you get the idea....

Here's my black and white inspiration for using with Pia Wallen's Crux blanket:
