Throw Blankets - A Decorators Friend

I love throw blankets of all styles.  I think they are one of the best accessories anyone can have in their stash.  All styles and colors are wonderful and can totally change the look of a room in a second or set the tone of your design.

Fur Throws - My favorite are these luxurious treasures.  They come in all kinds of faux furs.  I love this long haired one with the light and dark browns.  It just seems to make you want to curl up and cuddle.

Thrown across the foot of the bed - Chilly Nights

Add a fur pillow and up the style.

Living Room Makeover - thrown across the sofa it just begs you to snuggle in.

Is this instant glamour or what.

Updating Your Style - casually thrown across an ottoman that's used for extra seating.

This mod gray and white one is really run.  It's not supposed to be any kind of real fur, just a fun mod accessory.

Farmhouse Black & White - If you have a sofa fabric that is not your favorite, a throw totally distracts it.

My next favorite is Plaids.  I love them in all colors and think they totally bring a room to life and add much needed pattern to any space.

Neutral Family Room - this plaid throw is perfect to add a casual inviting look to the sofa

Camel and tan plaid can be dressed up and look elegant or played down and be casual.  Fall Home Tour.

A darker camel and cream plaid pulls out the camel colors from the horse painting.  Fall Home Tour

This gray check is also one of my favorites.  It gives the family room a bold pattern without being in your face.  Summer Home Tour

Don't forget to use them outdoors too.  This brown and cream stripe is perfect for a my Fall Porch, and just what I need when the air cools down a little.

Obviously solid colored throws always add a spark of color to enhance any decor, but don't be afraid of the patterned ones.  They can be your best friend.

  7. Marty,
    What an amazing collection of "throws", dear friend!
    I kept two favorites and the rest went into the Garage $ales!
    I have a creamy ivory cable knit that I love from Spring through Autumn!
    A tan and white acrylic throw that carries me through Winter
    that desperately needs to be replaced, but I can't give it up!
    Cozy and warm and decorative, too. . .throws are a must on the Prairie!

  8. Love all the throws. Anything new on you moving? Just wondering how its going.

  9. Great post, Marty. I love gets so darn cold here. And even with a/c we need them in the summer. I probably have one or two in every room! Love yours...I want a fur throw now!!


  10. Can I have that fur pillow? It is gorgeous♥

  11. While I am not a big fan of the fake furs or pillows, I do have them. I have an abundance of throws..fav one is gray and white plaid. Thanks for a great post....

  12. I love this post Marty, I've seen most of these before but seeing your rooms all together done in different throws and pillows is such a great way to see the big changes little changes can make! You've really got the knack for styling a throw, I love them tucked under the sofa pillows. You have quite a "wardrobe" of throws and pillows!

  13. Can I come live with you? :) I love throws! My daughter does too. She is cold natured and even with the A/C she sometimes curls up with one. Kind of a Christmas tradition...I always give her a throw and a book. I have a black fur throw and it's my favorite! I love how you change your rooms with different pillows and throws.


  14. I agree. Throws, and pillows, are great for decorating! And practice too. Sheila

  15. Marty, your throw ideas are so gracefully shown and are just lovely!

    Happy fall-


  16. Fabulous collection of throws (and pillows)! They can really change the flavor of a room. My Chihuahuas would love the faux fur ones. They might like a new addition for winter.

  17. You have a beautiful collection of throws, Marty! I need to buy some new ones. They really do add so much to a space!

  18. The IKEA throw is one of my all time favs. I have one in the living room and one on our bed during the fall. It's such a perfect color! I don't have faux fur but have chenille. So soft and fluffy. I love the black and white one in the image above. It looks a little retro. Perfectly fun.

  19. Marty,
    You have a stunning home. I love looking around. Thank you for sharing at Dishing it and Digging it link party. We love having you. By the way, I went this morning to your granddaughter's blog and she is an amazing woman. Just so touched by her stenght and love for her family.

  20. Your home is absolutely beautiful! Those throws are stunning! It is amazing how a throw and a few pillows can really transform a space!!!

  21. How inspiring! I love that you showed different ways to display the throws. We are such a cuddle up with a throw for TV and movies kind of family, that I need some ways to display them!
