5 Ideas For Adding Warmth To Your Home With Quilts And Throws
We all know that quilts and throws are an interior stylist’s best friend when it comes to creating a cosy space with loads of interest and textural goodness. And let’s face it, we all love a chunky blanket draped effortlessly on the couch during winter. In addition to finding quilts on sofas and, of course on beds, the humble quilt is at home in just about every room of the house. Let’s explore how to champion quilts and throws in your home this winter.
1. Super Luxe Textural Tones
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: layer up, baby! If you love a bit of glam (who doesn’t?!) look for throws, quilts, cushions in luxe textures like faux fur, velvet, leather and linen that will combine to give you a lush, rich look that is going to be equal parts show-stopping, irresistible and cosy.
2. Create A Cosy Look In Your Lounge
Cosy, like beauty, is very much in the eye of the beholder. And irrespective of which interior style has your heart, you can create a cosy look and feel by simply employing some tactile interest via throws, rugs, cushions and plants. Exponents of the California Cool style have always known that using a consistent hue across an entire space is the shortcut to creating a cosy look and feel. Try combining a natural jute rug, cream foundation pieces and some gorgeous throws and quilts for a total swoon-fest.
3. Adding Warmth With Quilts And Throws
Winter is peak quilt season and it’s the ideal way to add warmth to your living and lounging spaces. If you’re ready to lean all the way into creating a warm space, consider giving your walls a new coat of paint in a warm greige colour, and showcasing accents in natural timber. But if you’re looking to add a hint of warmth without the stress of a full-scale renovation, mixing and matching throws and cushions is the way to go. Subbing in warm throws and tactile cushions for winter will create a warm and inviting look. They’ll also be super snuggly when it comes to curling up on the couch for Netflix or a book. Any item that is both functional and stylish is a win-win in our books!
4. Did Somebody Say, “Decorative Ladder”?
If you have a quilt with beautiful decorative features or you just have too many quilts and need a storage solution (*raises hand*), allow us to present the decorative ladder. This is a wonderful way to store your quilts and display your impeccable taste at the same time. This is a style trick that works well in small spaces due to the minimal physical and visual space a ladder occupies. It also looks adorable in nurseries.
5. Keep It Personal And Make A Statement (look!)
Trends may come and go, but your own style is eternal. It doesn’t matter what the experts are saying or what social media may tell us, you are your own interior trend guru. So, mix and match to your hearts content and decorate your home with a generous dose of personality and love to create your ultimate cosy space. Home is where the heart is.
