Is it just me or has it been extra chilly these past couple of days? Lately, I find myself hanging out in the living room enjoying the cool breeze glass of wine at hand. When the air gets a bit too cold for comfort, I grab a throw and lay it over my legs. I’ve been a fan of throws for quite sometime, ( okay truth: ever since I read The Perfectly Imperfect Home where Deborah Needleman proclaimed it as a must-have for every home!)

Throws not only add a lovely bit of texture, pattern and color to a room, but they make your home inviting and comfortable as well.

We like using thick cotton throws with subtle patterns and neutral colors since our home is already a hodgepodge of colors and prints. We usually have throws ready and waiting on our couches and the armchair in our room.

Throws don’t have to be delegated to just one side of the couch, place one at the back of a couch for easy access.

Print on print! Matchy match just won’t do. Mixing patterns is a cinch just make sure there’s a comon hue.
