How To Style Your Throw Blankets

Throw blankets are a great way to incorporate color, pattern, texture, and style into your decor. Whether it's a light cotton throw during the spring or summer months, or a heavier cashmere or wool blanket for those chillier seasons, they serve both form and function in a space.

But many don’t know how to style their throw blankets without making it look messy.  Do you toss it, drape it, tuck it, or just keep it out of sight? Think of a throw blanket like you would an accessory to an outfit. It's meant to compliment your style and complete the overall look. Accounting for the material of your blanket and the look you want to convey, opt for either a casual drape or a structured fold. Simply drape it on the edge of your bed or the arm of a sofa for that "easy chic" look. Great for families where kids will be constantly using them, draping a throw takes seconds and still looks stylish. If you'd like something a little cleaner looking, try folding the blanket lengthwise and placing it down the center of an accent chair with a throw pillow placed on top of it. This can help inject a sophisticated stripe of color and also lend some layered appeal.
