Incorporating Textural Throws and Accessories Onto Your Bed
We’re a fan of adding quilts, blankets and throws to our beds, if not for the warmth, the added texture and color is reason enough for us. During Spring and Summer, we like to keep these light and airy so as to not weigh down our bedding and overheat us during the night.
How to Choose the Best Blankets and Throws to Accessorize Your Bed With
Pick a color scheme: Decide on a palette that you want to use for your space and how your blanket and throws will further that palette. This will help you narrow down choices and create a cohesive look.
Consider texture: When selecting blankets and throws, think about the texture you want to add to your bed. A soft and cozy blanket can add a touch of warmth and comfort; a box quilt will create dimension and break up a smooth setting.
Layer it up: For a more stylish look, layer different-sized and textured throw blankets on top of each other. This will create an interesting and inviting look that is sure to draw attention.
Choose a pattern: If you want to make a bold statement, consider choosing a patterned throw blanket. This will draw the eye to the bed and create a striking look.
