Give your room a Recession-friendly décor update…fast & easy!

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! 

And I’m a sucker for black & white… it’s a bold, statement-y combo that works just about anywhere.  Juxtapose the “Reed” organic cotton throw with your Oriental rug & red walls or rock it in your all-white room…its paint-splattered print gives it a serious modern edge! 
Ready?  Set… Throw!
