Do you love a good throw blanket, but get overwhelmed by all the different kinds and how to use them? Well, you are in luck! Below I have listed several different ways to use throws, plus some of my favorites.
Beginners Guide on Using a Throw Blanket
I love to drape throw blankets over chairs, especially when you can see the back of the chair. It is fun to use a throw with tassels or pom poms for added color and texture. This throw from Olive and Linen is one of my favorites because it has black tassels on 4 corners of the blanket making it fun to change things up.
One of my favorite ways to use a throw blanket is on a chair. I love to drape it over the arm and then spread it out on the floor. No, I don't leave them like that all the time, it is mainly to stage for pictures. This blanket is crochet with fun tassels on the ends. I love the textures it adds to a space.
Sometimes I like to fold throws for a neat and tidy look. I like to do that with throws that have fun details on the edges.
And throws are perfect for decorating the corner of my couch. I like to put a throw under my throw pillows to help me pop off the couch better. This is a little bit more sloppy, but ideal for a family room... just throw it on there and arrange until you like it. With this particular throw I just moved the corners until I got the black tassels where I wanted them.
On couches I also like to spread the throws out onto the ground. See how the throw takes your eyes up from the bottom of the photo to the center, it is a great photography tip. And if you're looking for more ways to style toss pillows, you can see that here.
If you want to change the look of an area adding a throw blanket is a great way to do that. Look how different the couch appears with a light throw and dark throw. These 2 throws also have different textures and are various sizes creating a very different feeling.
I like to change my rooms up for different seasons, but to change bedding and all the decor can be very expensive. However, changing out a throw can be a great budget friendly way to bring a different style into a room. For spring I used this blush pink throw and folded it neatly at the end of my bed.
For everyday, I like to use a charcoal throw that matches my bedding. And for creating an even different look, I like to just drape it over the corner of my bed.
Other Uses for Throws
You can also add throws to baskets. And I love the look of chunky throws, they add so much texture.
Have a design on a throw is another fun option. I love to add tribal designed throws to baskets as well.
Or, add it to a window seat to create a little extra style. I love it here with my patterned toss pillows. Beautiful and cozy!
