Decorative throws can complement window treatments and upholstery
Oct 4 2011
Design experts frequently talk of the importance of adding accessories to warm up a room or give it personality, and some accessories do a better job of that than others.
A throw blanket adds texture and warmth to a room.
Decorative throws are not only practical additions to bedrooms, dens or cozy reading areas in the living room, but can complement the colors and textures of any style décor.
In a neutral seating area, they can add a spurt of color from crocheted afghan to contemporary weaves, according to UltimateHomeMagazine.com. Throws can be personalized with monogrammed initials, club insignia or a family crest to add a unique touch.
"Instantly add on the finishing touches to a room by accessorizing with a throw blanket," the website advises. "Brighten up a solid color couch or sitting chair with a patterned or complementary-colored throw. [In a bedroom], an accent throw may be used to dress up or bring out the colors of a bed ensemble."
For a window treatment, pleated shades can be an attractive complement to a decorative throw blanket. The selection from Blinds Chalet is available in a range of colors and fabrics in either light-filtering or room-darkening versions at affordable prices.
