Transform Your Home with A Blanket for Every Room

If there's anything that instantly makes a room feel cozy, it's a blanket. New blankets give you a sense of peace and relaxation while inspiring you to stretch out and snuggle up.

Take a look around your home. There are definitely a few rooms and corners that could use a soft throw, knit afghan-style cover or fleece cover. Shop a delightful array of sizes and materials at Pottery Barn to make your home an oasis of sophisticated decor and welcoming texture.

What Are Throw Blankets?

Throw blankets are one of the most popular types of blankets for dressing up your home. They are slightly smaller than the full sizes you might put on a bed, but still keep you warm and comfortable while kicking back with a book or a movie.

  • They often double as decor. Fold yours over the arm of a sofa or coordinate yours with accent pillows or other furnishings in the room.
  • These blankets are also great for curling up in a chair or covering your legs while you're stretched out. They're the right size to tuck over your lap while you catch up on reading, texting or your favorite shows.
  • You can layer them over your bedding on chillier nights or when you want a little extra warmth at the foot of the bed. During the day, you can spread them out to create a color or pattern-blocked look.

Using Texture to Soften Your Home

One of the main reasons people love blankets is the softness they provide. Their soothing textures help you feel at home. By stocking up on one or two for every room in your home, you can soften the overall atmosphere. Even if you like architectural furnishings or bold artwork, there's one that's right for you.

  • If you love leather, darker woods and heavy furnishings with Mission-inspired or turned details, choose a substantial style with a traditional look. Heavier knits or weaves go best. Look at plaids and tweeds.
  • For rooms where light woods or polished metal accents create an airy feel, go one of two ways. First, make sure there's a warmer, bigger one to create an intimate feel in a spacious environment. Then, dress furniture with lightweight organic blankets.
  • In glamorous spaces with curated lighting, plush texture or curvaceous furniture silhouettes, choose faux fur to boost the glam factor or try a simple down one to lend a minimalist balance.

Which Blanket Style Is Best for You?

Know which kind of blankets are your favorites so that you can stock up on the styles you'll want to use every day. While it may seem like any one of these is a good one on a relaxing night in, you'll find as you build your collection that you have your favorites for different activities.

  • For reading or lounging in front of the TV, a throw is great as a lap cover. Stick to fuzzy versions for maximum coziness.
  • If you like to keep it cool in your house, a lightweight style can double as a shawl as you walk between rooms.
  • For makeshift slumber parties in front of a fireplace or projector screen, you might like a traditional comforter. Grab a fresh one that might end up on the floor for fun and keep your usual selection on your bed.
  • Those who like to sleep warm tend to love lots of light blankets. Layer them up and feel the heat you crave without feeling too heavy.

Pairing Each Blanket with Other Textiles

Pair your blankets with textiles you already have for a coordinated, harmonious look. Choose ones that match with bedspreads or upholstered furnishings throughout your house. That way, if you decide to refresh your rooms, you can move them around and still feel like your decor supports the atmosphere you want.

Throw Blankets Make Beautiful Gifts

These covers make wonderful gifts, too. If you're looking for a unique way to exchange presents with friends for special occasions, let them know about your newfound love for blankets, throws and other soft pieces around the home. When it's your turn to do the gifting, you have a go-to that everyone will love. Once you find one you love, feel free to pick up one for a family member or dear friend in the same or a different color and let them know you've got your own at home.
