Fold it, toss it, cheat it, hang it, there are so many variations of how to layer your throw blanket on your bed, a side chair, or even across a bench. There is no real answer, per usual, the point of it all is to make it look inviting. As if someone got up from using the blanket and left it where they were, intentionally.
Now there are plenty of interior designers out there who will strongly disagree with me, and I don’t care. Everything about myself and each of my designs is to have a space that looks lived in and intentional. So don’t fuss about where or how your blanket is, just let it be. In the meantime, here are a couple pointers to give you that “simple, lived in look.”
One of my favorite ways to utilize a throw blanket is to simply fold it (don’t pay attention to the particulars on how you fold it), do what feels right for the space, and then drape it. Drape it over the side of a chair, the arm of a sofa, or even across an entryway bench.
Toss It, or Try a Triangle.
Instead of folding it or laying it across your bed, give it the old Triangle draped try. This way you have the layered look while maintaining the California Casual vibe of a well lived in space. This method maintains a look of luxury and adds the dimensional layers, but still holds true to our philosophy of living more simply. The triangle method truly takes no effort, and a little bit of, don’t worry about it.
This might actually be my favorite way to style a throw blanket. When cheating it on your bed, you can fold it in half lengthwise or you can leave it unfolded, and casually throw it across the end of your bed and leave a little extra to hang down towards the floor. Let’s be honest, no one likes the perfectly placed throw blanket that is tucked just right, and even on each side, and perfect in every way, blah, blah, blah. The more casual the toss the better, remember to embrace more simple living.
