Once we start hearing the weatherman mention Fall, we are all too ready to pull out our heavier quilts, and other Fall decor. One of our favorite things that will add another layer of texture and color is a throw. They come in many sizes and colors, and all price ranges. Looking through the online picture book, Houzz, we found some great uses for your pretty and useful throws.
Now that we are ready to use our outside living spaces again (most of us did not do much entertaining during the HOT summer), how about adding something to stay cozy after the sun goes down? The added layer of the blankets/throws makes this little table so much more inviting, and if you don't have a lantern, we have several of those, too!!
The small throw on the chair is a good example that not all throws need to be large or bulky. A smaller, more inexpensive, but colorful throw breaks up the expanse of grey so that it blends more easily into this less serious mix of throw pillows and art. The orange could easily be replaced with a cream or aqua throw for the summer months.
You might have picked up a blanket on vacation at some point in your travels but not sure how to display it. This monochromatic bedroom was quickly warmed up with this throw. The darker colors and imperfect fringe add an organic feel and also keep the space from looking too cold for the upcoming months.
And if the look of a "throw" seems to casual for your sense of style, we can always design a custom made blanket for your room. The one show above may not be any larger than shown, although you could design one that is a little large and more usable. We can see that it adds that extra layer of design that helps finish off this room and helps balance out the decor. A suggestion would also be made on a custom throw: make it reversible! A smaller pattern with more of the orange would be a great choice on the backside of this one ;)
These chair just got all dressed up for Fall!! If you haven't thought about folding your throw on the center of your chairs, give it a try. The color choice is great for this room, and if you are looking for even more of an Autumn look, just change out the white pillows for something darker.
Don't forget those ottomans, they need some dressing, too. Although this one isn't as "fallish" as some of the others, you get the idea of changing up the look. We like a more casual look with the throw laying over an ottoman so it can be quickly picked up and used! A scrunched throw just adds the fullness of the folds and looks just as nice and more usable--perfect for a family room. A more formal approach is shown above, and does seem appropriate for the area.
If you are taking inventory of your throws and come up short, we have a great new shipment in this week, along with several we always keep in stock.
