It's All in the Detail: 3 Need to Know Ways to Style a Throw
Throw rugs have long been a staple of the home however it is only in the past few years they have become a must-have interior trend that no stylish home would be caught without! Throw rugs are not only functional but are a great way to add texture and colour into an interior space whilst also working back with other decor pieces to reinforce the aesthetic tone of the home. Long gone are the days of simply folding your throw neatly on the end of the sofa, styling your throw rug is now a must-know topic and we have all the information you need!
For those of us that like things neat, tidy and polished this one is for you! By folding your throw either into halves or quarters and placing it neatly you can create a minimal but ever so chic modern look. Once folded you can place your throw anywhere you please, think over the back of your sofa tucked into some cushions, on an occasional chair, over the arm of a sectional sofa segment or even on the end of a bed. It's an understated, clean and sophisticated option that lets simplicity shine. Styling a throw rug this way suits most aesthetics but of course, lend itself extremely well to scandi, Hamptons and modern minimal interiors.
Sometimes the busy pace of everyday life gets in the way of a perfectly clean and styled home and we just have to fake it as best we can!! This is where baskets become your very best friends especially when it comes to stowing away things like throw rugs! Baskets are the ever so chic modern-day fix all and a perfect place to stylishly stash your myriad of throws whilst keeping them at the ready. Opt for baskets that work back with your preexisting interior style and just toss your throws inside and pull a little of the rug out so that it artfully drapes over the side slightly. Styling throws in this way works chicly in all interior aesthetics but looks gorgeous in both coastal and country style homes.
We’ve all long admired that casually but ever so perfectly draped throw rug featured in interior magazines and home-style guides but never quite been able to master it ourselves! Its effortless in appearance yet is something that in reality takes a little while to learn so don’t be defeated just yet. Whether you are draping your rug over a lounge arm, bed, occasional chair or outdoor seating the technique is all the same. Pinch the throw at its center, then drag it over one half of your chosen bed/sofa/chair and then just let it drop, you can then step back and restyle any sections that you feel need attention or just hide those bits behind some beautiful accent cushions!
