There is nothing more inviting in a room than a comfy throw tossed over the arm of a chair or sofa. A beautiful throw instantly injects colour and texture into a room and can be a wonderful statement piece.
With so many colours and styles to choose from, throws like pillows, can be changed with the seasons – instantly updating the look of a room. For the Fall and Winter seasons decorate with rich colours such as reds and golds – exotic textures such as faux fur and luscious velour’s add drama and warmth and are wonderful companions to a fireplace with a roaring fire. In the Spring and Summer seasons choose cotton throws in alluring colours such as soft blues, greens and neutrals.
To add a modern look to a room fold your throw in a long narrow panel and place it vertically along the back and seat of your sofa, rather than draping it over the arm of the couch. This instantly updates your room giving it modern look. This treatment is more effective with a thin knit throw rather than a thick cozy throw. Try this treatment on a bed as well placing the throw over one corner of the bed or in a non traditional way across the bed closer to the pillows rather than at the foot of the bed. There are no rules so change it up and be creative!
Throws can be used in just about every room. They can be used as decorative accessories in a vignette, strictly for aesthetic reasons or as functional accessories for those nights on the couch watching TV and cuddling up with a loved one.
Throws also make perfect gifts – no matter what your budget is you will be sure to find something for everyone.
