Wrap it Up: How to Pick the Perfect Throw Blanket for Your Home Decor
May 06, 2023
Choosing the right throw blanket can be a great way to add warmth, texture, and style to your home decor. Here are some tips to help you pick the right throw blanket for your space:
Consider the color: When choosing a throw blanket, it's important to consider the colors in your existing decor. If you have a neutral color scheme, a bold and bright throw blanket can add a pop of color and make a statement. Our favorites to add a pop of color are Diana, Huys, and Bloem. Alternatively, if you have a lot of patterns and colors in your decor, a neutral throw blanket can balance things out and create a cohesive look. You might try the Anywhere Throw, Reika, or Chelsea.
Look at the texture: The texture of a throw blanket can add visual interest and depth to your decor. If you have a lot of smooth surfaces in your space, a chunky knit or faux fur throw can add some tactile interest. LiliKnits makes some of our favorite chunky throws. Alternatively, if you have a lot of texture in your decor, a medium knit throw, like ours, might be a better fit.
Consider the material: The material of the throw blanket can affect its durability, warmth, and overall aesthetic. Our throws are made from a blend of recycled cotton and recycled polyester. The small amount of poly is used for durability and strength. The cotton makes our throws soft and breathable. Unlike wool, these materials are machine-washable. Bonus!
Think about the size: The size of the throw blanket can also affect how it looks in your space. A larger throw blanket can make a statement on a couch or bed, while a smaller throw can be a nice accent on a chair or ottoman. Our throws come in three sizes; baby (30"x40"), standard (50"x60"), and jumbo (60"x80").
Don't forget about functionality: While style is important, it's also essential to choose a throw blanket that is functional for your needs. Seek & Swoon throws are the perfect weight for all seasons — whether you're cozying up in front of the fireplace in the winter, want a light amount of weight in the spring, or need a bit of warmth on the patio on a cool summer night.
Choosing the right throw blanket for your home decor is all about considering the color, texture, material, size, and functionality. By keeping these factors in mind, you can find a throw blanket that not only looks great but also meets your practical needs. And guess what...we have a throw for that!
