Cozy Throws for Your Home

Here’s the deal at our house:

My husband is always warm and likes to keep the house cooler.

I am always cold and usually have on a sweatshirt and socks when indoors, even in the heat of summer.

Is this the case at your house, too? What’s the solution?

I stash cozy throws all over the house. That way, wherever I am in the house, I have a throw to keep me warm. Here are some ideas for throws for your home and creative ways to store them.

The easiest way to store a throw is to just drape it on the back of a chair.

This nubby throw is so soft. And, although it is lightweight, it keeps me warm. I grab it when we’re watching TV in the living room.

Because throws can be inexpensive, you can change them out for the holidays.

Here, I’ve draped a Christmas-colored flannel blanket over the back of the sofa for chilly nights.

Vintage quilts make great throws.

These quilts were made by my husband’s aunt (made from his grandmother’s old dresses – how cool is that?), so I wanted to display them. An old ladder is a great way to display several throws. I found this ladder at a thrift store for $6!

Don’t have room for a ladder? Fold up the throws in a big basket instead.

Stash the basket behind the couch for easy access on cool nights.

Don’t forget the bedrooms.

I keep a throw in each bedroom for extra warmth. In my room, I keep it at the end of the bed, because I pull it over me most nights. I store throws or blankets in the other rooms in either a closet or dresser.

It’s time to get ready for colder weather! I can’t wait. Get those throws out and get cozy!

  • Last winter in Minnesota was the year of the Polar Vortex, so throws were an essential! They’re just a fun way to change up room decor too.
    Great post, Karen.

  • Thanks, Cheryl! Even in GA, we need throws – but certainly needed for a Polar Vortex! Stay warm, friend!
