Make your sofa a sanctuary this Autumn with comfy throws and blankets you can snuggle up into as the nights grow cooler. And when you're not cocooning yourself in them, they can make a real style statement in your home and bring colour, pattern and texture to a room.
Depending on your personal style and the overall feel of your home, you can either fold throws and pile them high to create a stylish structured look, or if you like a more bohemian interior, you can create a loose look with throws and textiles cascading over furniture, ready to be cuddled into.
Whatever camp you're in, here are our favourite ways to style throws so that they add a decor element to your interior all year round:
Keep things neat
- Pile and stack pattern against print on a shelf or bookcase
- Place horizontally over the top of a sofa
- Roll, fold or lay open across the end of a bed - aligned to the edge
- Place over the centre of an armchair or sofa and position a pillow on top
- Pile neatly into a woven basket
- Place over the centre of a sofa or armchair, or the side arm - use the full length of the throw to cover the seat or back
- Hang on a bamboo or monochrome ladder leaning against the wall
- Place over a headboard and fix tight
- Hang folded in a nursery where little hands can't reach it
Let it all hang out
- Drape loosely over the back of an armchair or sofa and pile high with pillows
- Drape loosely across a bed
- Pile a woven basket high with throws and blankets and pop near the sofa
- Hang on a hook or coat rack with lots of clashing colours together
- Hang on the wall as art to add texture and a boho feel
The great thing about throws, blankets and quilts is that you are ready for whatever the weatherman says in the most stylish of ways - grab them when you need to get cosy, then use them as interior decor in sunnier times. The styling options are endless, but our personal fave has got to be a tight wrap around our pyjamaed bodies with a cup of hot tea on top. Bliss...
