The season for sipping hot cocoa and snuggling under quilts or throw blankets has finally arrived here in Maryland!
When the first snow flurries of the season fell last week, I couldn't wait to make a cup of hot cocoa and curl up on the sofa under my favorite throw. Like throw pillows, a throw blanket can add pattern, texture and color to a space. They also provide warmth on chilly days. I love throw blankets because they are both decorative and functional. Throw blankets come in a variety of textures and fabrics (ie. cotton, wool, chenille, and even cashmere). The house can get a bit chilly so we tend to use our throws alot more this time of year. I like to make sure the throws are easily accessible but also compliment our home's decor. Here are 5 ways you can decorate with throw blankets in your own home:
1. PLACE and tuck a folded throw down the front of a sofa.
