Updating your decor can be expensive when investing in new paint, wallpaper, furniture and artwork for the walls. Or, it could be as easy and affordable as incorporating a new throw blanket into your living room, den, TV room or bedroom. Warm, comfortable, available in a wide variety of styles and colors, throw blankets are every room’s secret weapon.
Throw blankets are great for snuggling up on the couch while watching a movie or adding an extra layer of warmth over a duvet while sleeping at night. But with most throw blankets available in bold colors and fun trims, they also present an easy-to-add design element. Add a pop of color to a neutral room with a mustard yellow throw blanket. Cover up a fading armchair with a soft gray fleece throw blanket. Having guests over and don’t want your new, white couch ruined by accidental spills? Throw blankets to the rescue.
Easy to clean, available at just about every price point, and boasting a wide range of colors and styles, it’s not a coincidence that draping a throw blanket over your shoulders looks like a cape. Throw blankets are the superheroes of home decor.
