 With a giant smile and her glorious crown of red curls, Alice Lane captivates us all year round. In these darkest, longest days of winter, we are thinking about Alice up at her country idyll—climbing all over wood piles, building fires, doing paint-by-numbers with a cup of tea as snow descends around her—all while warmly bundled in a brightly colored Marshmallow turtleneck. Vibrant purple furnished with rose bouquets—the perfect way to brighten up the mid-winter doldrums. 

“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.”
― Edith Sitwell
