7 Clever Tips for Styling With Throws



Adding a throw to any space is a great way to add warmth and texture to your home.  We have seven ideas to give you some inspiration to help you get started.

1. Over the arm of your chair

Folding a throw blanket and putting it over the arm of a sofa or chair looks elegant and high-end. It adds depth and dimension to furniture, and it’s one of the first things that catches your eye when you walk into a room.

2. Casual Draping

For a look that’s more comfortable and casual, you can casually drape a throw rather than folding it. You can drape it on an ottoman, bench, sofa, or chair. That gives that perfect “undone” look.

You can also drape a throw at the foot of a bed.

3. Folded Across An Ottoman or Bench

Rather than draping a blanket and putting it on an ottoman or bench, try folding it and laying it across either. This gives a tailored look and adds visual interest to either of these pieces of furniture. You can also add books or accessories on top of the throw.

4. Layered on Linens

If you want to add a throw to a bed and you don’t want to casually drape it, consider folding it at the foot of the bed for a tailored look.

5. In a Window Seat

If you’re lucky enough to have a window seat, add a throw blanket, making it even cosier and more inviting.

6. In your bedroom

Regardless of whether you use your throw as a blanket, a throw makes a good addition to soften up a bedroom and create more livability. For example, add a throw on your bed ottoman as opposed to the bed for a chic alternative.

7. Use them as decor pieces

Finally another great way to style your throws while you are not using them in the summer months is to add them in a basket underneath your console table.
