5 Ways to Decorate with Throws in 2018

by |

When it comes to decorating, it truly is the little things that matter. Small details, like throw blankets, make all the difference in transforming your space. Aside from the practical side of instant warmth, throw blankets can also visually change the entire look of your space. When you envision throws as another décor piece, the possibilities are endless. Here are five ways we love to style these snuggly staples!

1. All About Texture

For more contemporary rooms that might feel a bit cold, a textured throw can instantly add interest and warmth. The Magnolia Home Bree throw blanket collection mixes rich colors and acrylic and cotton for a throw blanket that adds tactility to your space. The handcrafted weave texture is soft to the touch and visually stunning. Looking for a soft texture with plenty of versatility? The Magnolia Home Duke collection gives you the best of both worlds with a reversible weave and two texture options.

2. Focus on Furniture

Have a statement furniture piece that you love? Toss a throw blanket over the back or side of a sofa to add elegance and draw attention to the center of the room. This also puts your throw in a convenient space for guests to use while lounging. Choose a neutral color, like in the Magnolia Home Lark collection, for a throw that will pair well with any furniture piece. Place coordinating throws on your couch and chairs to bring the style of your interior together. Complete the look with throw pillows that complement your throws and add even more comfort.

3. Pop of Pattern

Looking to revive a dull or boring space? A throw with an unexpected pattern or pop of color lets you bring a fun change to your space that you can switch out as you please. The Magnolia Home Lora collection’s stripes are the perfect mix of bold and subdued with a fun pattern but muted colors. For a splash of bright color, add the Magnolia Home Jane throw blanket in Gold or Navy. A bold blanket cascading down a sofa or couch creates an inviting and welcoming space that you and any guests will want to stay and enjoy.

4. For the Bed

Add a folded throw the end of a bed for an elegant and sophisticated look. Choose a thicker weave, like the Magnolia Home Alissa throw blanket to add depth to your bedscape. You can fold the throw horizontally at the end of the bed, use one as a bed runner, or drape it on a nearby chair for easy access. For your guest room, a folded throw makes the room feel more inviting. A throw with tassels, like the Magnolia Home Anna blanket, is a great choice to add instant interest and detail.

5. Take it Outside

Amp up your outdoor style with throw blankets that keep everyone warm when the weather gets a bit chilly at night. Toss a few extra throw blankets in a basket near your porch for quick access. Whether it’s a neighborhood barbeque or s’more’s by the fire, a basket of stylish throw blankets will keep the party lasting long into the night.
