Autumn/Winter Interior Design: Decorating With Throws

There is something warm and comforting about the transition to autumn.  The leaves begin to take on their beautiful rich colours of reds, oranges, golds and umbers. Sheer clothing gets replaced by soft, warm sweaters. Fireplaces start to get switched on again and hot cocoa appears on our shopping lists.  This is also a good time to add some warmth to our interiors.  What better way to do that then to add a throw in a room which will always be on hand to snuggle into?  Besides adding warmth, it can also be a source of comfort after a hard day.  However did you also know it can add a LOT of style or even change the look completely of a piece of furniture?  The below chair is a great example!  Adding the two contrasting throws transforms this plain white chair into something a bit more sophisticated.

This white fluffy throw  adds a bit of brightness and fun to the dark sofa.

In summer the owners below have white slipcovers on their living room furniture but now that autumn appears they have simply added a couple of warm, vibrant throws.  I love how the throw covers most of the sofa showing all its rich colours and patterns while the throw on the chair is simply thrown across the back.

I love the luxurious feel of this faux animal throw!  It just seems to beckon me to curl up on the sofa with it.

A throw on a table?  Why not! It’s creates a great little nook for a cup of tea and conversation.

This bed throw adds texture and interest to this neutral bedroom.  A very important tip when decorating in neutrals.

An exceedingly sumptuous faux animal fur throw adds glamour in the bedroom.

Super stylish idea!  Pair up a bright coloured throw with a large gold rope and tassel and you have got an instant wow feature on your bed!  There are many ways to decorate with throws depending on the look you want to create.  Use them over chairs, ottomans or settees as well!
