Ok, I know it’s no revelation, but this economy is really taking the wind out of my sails. And when I’m down, I like to decorate… but as we’re all pinching pennies, re-vamping a space seems a little daunting & counter-productive, right? Well, I think I’ve found a way around! One of my favorite accessories for home or office is a seriously splashy accent blanket… it’s an instant dose of chic. The perfect throw can soften a space while adding risk-free punches of color and pattern! If you’re not ready to take the re-upholstery plunge, a statement-y throw is a brilliant solution! You can try a few before you commit and it’s oh-so-much less expensive.
So, get yourself a gorgeous “eco” blanket, drape it where you like and scour your thrift shops for a couple pieces that tie into the colors of the throw (vintage glass is always a winner). Instant update – chic & easy… & cheap! Here are my top 3 blanket picks:
Rich colors, bold pattern and sustainable style… what more could you want? The recycled cotton “Indian” throw*** will add punch to any drab sofa or sophistication to any bland bed! Super-soft, this chic piece is made from pre-consumer clippings cast off during the cut & sew process (think… all the cotton on a bolt that ISN’T used in the making of mass-produced t-shirts).
Looking for a little modern elegance? The brushed organic cotton blanket is for you! Its cool colors are refined, but the pop-arty pattern keeps it current. Of oh-so-soft jacquard woven fleece, this piece will keep you warm or brighten your room. Surround with a couple of sleek chrome accents and… hello, urban sophistication!
