How to decorate with throw blankets

Throw blankets work double duty as home decor and items to snuggle up under while reading or watching TV. The handy blankets are available in a range of materials, such as chenille, woven organic cotton, cashmere, faux fur, fleece, silk and wool. Choose a fabric, pattern and colour, such as blue or brown, to coordinate with the overall look of the room. A throw blanket adds instant colour to a boring, neutral-hued couch.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Choose a throw blanket in a colour, pattern and material to match a room's decor. Pick a patterned or colourful blanket to enhance a plain couch or bed covering. Drape a black and white zebra print blanket on an all-white or black couch to add an exotic touch. Arrange a turquoise or sunny yellow blanket on a white or tan comforter in a bedroom to add vibrancy to the space.

  2. 2

    Place a decorative throw blanket over the top of a couch or love seat and allow it to drape over the front and back. Fold a large blanket widthways prior to draping it over the furniture to create a streamlined look.

  3. 3

    Set a throw blanket at the foot of a bed to add visual interest and to have on hand during chilly nights. Fold a large blanket widthways before placing it at the end of the bed.

  4. 4

    Decorate with a festive, seasonal throw blanket to celebrate a specific holiday or time of year. Enhance a couch with a whimsical snowman-patterned blanket during the winter or a spooky witch and ghost-printed blanket for Halloween. Rotate the decorative blankets throughout the year.
