Looking for an easy way to update your room’s decor?
Accent blankets are an easy and inexpensive way to do just that.
Along with accent pillows, toss blankets are one of the most common accessories to home furnishings.
Besides providing warmth and comfort, throws can bring both color and texture to a living room, bedroom, or den.
By draping an accent blanket over the arm of a chair, letting it cascade from the corner of the couch, folding one lengthwise at the foot of the bed, or even hanging one on a wall, you can change the look of a room in an instant.
And because accent blankets come in a variety of colors, patterns, and materials you can easily make them work with your home decor.
Generally, neutral colors are easiest to match and blend with other accent pieces and furnishings. It’s also important to keep size in mind. Choose a smaller accent blanket for the couch to avoid a look of bulkiness. For the bed, choose one that can spread across the mattress width.
Accent blankets are easy to swap out when the seasons change. For fall and winter, use throws made of material such as cashmere, sherpa or wool to stay warm and cozy. For summer and spring, go with cotton and linen throws. A popular trend currently in accent blankets is the chunky knit pattern. The oversized throws can bring a touch of whimsy and comfort to any room.
Whatever your budget is, an accent blanket can be an easy and inexpensive way to give your room an instant makeover.
