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.

Sometimes I like to layer with 2 throws, one across the foot of the bed and one on the corner. Contrasting colors that match the decor are perfect.  Blush pink throw here   Teal Throw here
