{warming up the new year} is just a throw away.

a pop of stripes on this orange sofa adds fun and focus
I love pillows, *more on that sick obsession coming up in the next post...I realize loving pillows as much as I do is just a symptom of my love of textiles in general and all things made from linen, cotton & wool... although using a pillow can change the look of a room in an instant, this rule also applies to throws.
I love me a throw! The soft block of color is a sure fire way to add a pop to a shot.
a stripe throw placed at the end of a bed can create a pleasing accent
a throw can add softness and add warmth visually as well as physically
throws are a little piece of art
I have throws all over my home, my kids love using them and throws add a nice touch of color and texture to my decor & they will in yours as well.
