5 WAYS TO DECORATE WITH THROWS

Think there’s any design magic on how to decorate with throws?  It’s definitely a home accent you can’t live without, second to the pillow. But to get it right, it must appear effortless and casual, so it will take ‘effort’ and a few ‘throws’ to get it right. I’ve seriously repeated the process over and over as if it spontaneously landed in it’s desired spot. I know, obsessive.  So think of your favorite cool hotels…they don’t feel as cozy without the throw folded neatly on the bed, right?  So how many ways are there to ‘throw a throw’? Well, at least 5–and I even cracked myself up by naming them….Who knew?…xo PO

1.  The ‘I JUST ROLLED OUT OF BED THROW’! (larger version required:-)

2.  The ‘SOPHISTICATED THROW’.  Fold neatly to layer with pillows. A bit ‘uptight’, but still cool.

3.  The ‘I’M ALMOST A RUG, THROW’!  A subtle corner hanging on the floor for an effortless and cool look. I’m dying over this guest room and the concrete!

4.  The ‘ANGLED, THROW’!  Toss on a corner for a punch of color and then sit a tray on top to keep people off of your white furniture:-)

5.  The ‘HALF BEDSPREAD/HALF THROW’. A bit of an identity crisis here—either way, it’s a common hotelement in a boutique hotel.
