How to make a throw blanket and where to buy them to so that you can add color and texture to a room by draping them over a sofa, chair or bed.

As I was sitting alone in the comfort of the AC masking off the staircase around each baluster with nothing else but my thoughts to keep me amused, I started to think about fall and all that is ahead. If you don’t know this from reading my blog….  I LOVE Fall. It is my favorite season.

Pretty soon the AC will be off and you will find me enjoying a crisp fall breeze blowing into the house.

When we first looked at our house last fall with the real estate agent, it was such a day. The breeze was gently blowing through the house, the leaves were vibrant all around the lake. I knew I found home.

Since I sort of missed enjoying fall last year with all that we had to do to move to SC, I am planning to make the most of it this year. Sitting out on the deck, gazing at the lake in one of my rockers with a hoodie and throw blanket… and of course a cup of hot tea.

Now that fall will be here soon I want to begin to warm the room up. I have drapes to still finish making and hang, as well as adding some cozy texture to the room.

One of the ways I like to warm up a room is by placing a throw blanket across the back or arm of a chair or sofa. I love how they warm up a space while pulling a color scheme together. I have many. If I have an extra I place it in big floor basket in the room for easy retrieval when needed.

There will never be a shortage of throw blankets at the Henkler Hacienda. :-) I like to mix and match them. I like using them better than throw pillows since they don’t get in the way as much as pillows do.

I buy most of them at places like HomeGoods and Walmart.

I have even made a few. One I made was a summer weight throw that I made with a remnant of fabric. Summer throws are needed when the AC starts to feel too chilly especially when you are relaxing reading or watching a movie on TV. Kitty cats love to curl up on them no matter what season they are for.

This throw blanket I semi-made. I bought a plain-edged fuchsia fur throw then added my own style to in the way of large pom poms. I called it my Mondo Pom Pom Throw.

It is heavier, perfect for snuggling under on a crisp fall day as well as in the winter to cozy up with by the fire.

… I bought this faux fur throw blanket. It is the one my family fights over to use when watching TV or reading. It’s soft, warm and weighted just right. It will be hard to find one better than this.

Do you collect throw blankets?  Do you neatly fold your throw blankets over the back of a chair or its arm or do you casually throw it over so it drapes in soft folds?

  1. Hi Diane,
    I just wanted to say how much I love your blog. I love the fact you do your own thing and are not dictated to by fleeting fashions and trends, or what famous bloggers have in their homes. Your home is just beautiful! I sincerely love it. Thank you so much for sharing all you’ve learned along the way. I am always smiling when I see your newest blog post appear in my inbox. It always brings joy.
    Thanks again,
    Elisabeth (Australia).

  2. After reading your blog for some time now, I know you like color, so I think you choose #7. It has all of the classic fall colors and would look amazing against white furniture.

    As for my house, I’m in a Lapio development here in Hatfield so we freeze 3 of the 4 seasons, and sweat to death upstairs during the other one. I am actually thankful for bitter cold days because my heat pump actually puts out heat those days?

    I’m patiently waiting to see your stair makeover; and you have inspired me to tackle painting our stained woodwork in the future. Best of luck this week!

  3. The Woven Cotton Throw in gold would be perfect for my family room…I’ve been looking for a throw in this shade for some time now. I also love the Houndstooth Throw in black – I think it would look good just about anywhere. Did you choose the Throw With Colorful Fringe? I’m not sure on it being the one you would choose, but you love green and that one is just so fun and cheerful…I myself am quite drawn to it. I throw mine over the furniture sometimes and fold and drape them other times. LOL – guess it depends on my mood and how I’m styling the rest of the room.
