Shall We “Throw” in some Fall!?

In my last post on mantel techniques I mentioned how important it is to vary the textures in your composition to keep it interesting.

I think the Fall/Winter months are the perfect time of year to use lots of textures in your home to make it feel warm and cozy.

After all we add texture in our Fall/Winter wardrobes with cable knit sweaters, wool coats, and sometimes fur, hopefully faux fur.

Rough textures will really add a wonderful warm, and cozy layer to any room.

Think of all the different ways you can add texture to your rooms for the cooler months that are about to arrive.
I know we all immediately think of a cozy throw to snuggle up with while sitting by the fire…..

I have used this image in another post, but it is just too perfect to not use it again. This room is so cozy,but can you imagine it without the throw?

This is just luscious!!

 I love this room and yet without the throw I am not sure it would look as cozy and inviting.


 This is an interesting way to display your throws or maybe it is to hide a stain?!!

Fur throws are the ultimate for snuggling in for a nice nap.

Throws come in all kinds of styles, colors and patterns………


I love the cable knit throws from Pottery Barn! They come in such pretty Fall colors. There is nothing prettier than a cream cable knit sweater,or in this case a throw!

How about a cashmere cable knit throw?

This is one of my all time favorite ways to display a throw on a chair!

 No matter what type of throw you love, or how you toss it they will always add an extra layer of coziness to any room.

I wrote a post last year on  how I like to display my throws if you are interested you can read about it HERE! 
So tell me do you like to gently toss your throws or do you neatly fold them and put them in place?

How do you like to toss your throws?
