Matching Your Throw Blanket to Your Room's Design

Luxury throw blanket, home decor

Throw blankets are among the most comforting items to have in any room. Whether it’s the living room, the basement, or your bedroom, woven blankets can work anywhere. They are versatile enough to provide warmth, coziness, and style while adding a unique touch of your personality to any space. Throw blankets have also become a staple for the modern home since they’re widely available in numerous colors, designs, and sizes.

Even if you have more traditional tastes that prefer muted and neutral blankets or you have an eclectic flair you’d like to flaunt in your home, there’s a blanket out there for you. Throws can tie a room’s design elements together while bearing your distinct style.

The Best Ways to Arrange a Throw

Contrary to the name, you don’t just ‘throw’ a throw blanket and call it a day. Otherwise, it will look like a normal woven blanket that you forgot to fold and put away correctly. Instead, gently drape it across a chair arm and allow it almost to touch the floor to achieve a casual and cozy look to your room. If you’re aiming for a stylish but lived-in look, lay your throw blanket across a sofa back and arrange complimentary cushions.

You can even use an elegant throw to spice up your coffee table. Draping it over the top will add some color and texture to help protect the surface from everyday wear and tear. However, if you prefer a tidier look, you can fold your throw blanket and put it on the center of your seating, across the back of your sofa, or even at the bed’s foot.

Choosing Throws Based on Your Room’s Design

Now that you know how to arrange a throw blanket, you may be wondering about the best way to choose one according to your interior design. Fortunately, this all boils down to your personal preference and style, especially if you want to keep in theme with the room. Take a look at your curtains, rugs, cushions, and the other colorways in your room to decide on a throw blanket that would best complement these. For example, if the space uses many neutral hues like gray and white, you may want a throw with some subtle design, such as our Wyatt Blanket

However, if you’d want a blanket that will match any room, our Gray Tweed Throw Blanket can do just that. It can add a muted softness to a bright and vibrant area, or it can finish off a room full of antiques and old oak furniture.

Throws for Traditional Designs

Traditional homes benefit from single colors or coordinated designs, so it’s a good idea to use throws of similar styles and decorate a room with them. You can also mix and match by combining a soft white throw with a patterned one, which will give your room more visual depth.

Throws for Modern Homes

Meanwhile, if you live in a contemporary home with lots of chrome, brand new wood, or glass, then you likely have a room that’s full of color and vibrant designs. Using a throw blanket that coordinates your décor is a great way to add an interior magazine-like vibe to your room while making it look cohesive. If your room has many round shapes, the Mulberry Blanket would be a perfect fit. As a couch throw, it can break the monotony of particular solid-colored furniture, allowing you to make your sofa the focal point of the room.


Cotton blankets are a great way to dress up a room while providing yourself with a way to keep warm and cozy when temperatures drop. They also allow you to express yourself and add a more personal touch to any room. By mixing and matching combinations of throw blankets, you’ll add more dimensions to your space that truly draws the eye.
