How to Style a Throw Blanket

Have you ever seen a beautiful throw blanket or textile and thought - I love this, but how do I use this in my home? We’re here to give you some ideas on how to style like a pro.

    Throws are a great way to add color, pattern, texture and layers to a room. In the winter, it’s common to have a couple of cozy wool or cashmere blankets, but spring and summer provide opportunities to switch to lighter weight fabrics like cotton or linen. Switching up materials and colors allows you to utilize throws as stylish decor elements any time of year. 

    Depending on your personal style and the overall feel of the room, you can either take a more structured approach with a neatly folded or rolled blanket, or you can use a casual loose placement. 

    For a neat, structured approach in a sitting area or bedroom, try folding length-wise and using the following placements:

    • Drape over the center of a chair & place pillow on top
    • Drape over the center of a sofa, or over side arm of sofa or chair - use the full length of the throw to cover the seat & back or simply drape over the back
    • Drape horizontally over the top of a sofa & add pillows
    • Drape across the end of a chaise or a over a ottoman
    • Fold or roll & place in a basket
    • Hang on a bamboo ladder leaning against the wall - this looks great with several throws and/or textiles
    • Fold & lay across foot of the bed - either draped over the foot or neatly aligned with the edge
    • Centered & draped over a headboard
    • Rolled & placed on bed

    For a more laid-back look, try the following - this may take a few tries to get the perfect pooling of fabric:

    • Drape loosely over chair back, arm, sofa & style with pillow(s)
    • Drape loosely across bed
    • Hang on a hook or coat rack for color, pattern
    • Hang on wall as art
