When I was growing up, throws used to be associated with winter months and nanna naps. I recently added some white faux fur throws to my daughters' bedroom and they have been the biggest hit since the arrival of the iPad. The girls dress up in them, it makes them feel glamorous (at the ages of 9 and 5yrs), the room now has texture, its more comfortable and the throws also adds personality to the room.
Throws are style makers. They can transform a room by adding a pattern, a pop of colour or merely just adding texture (white throw on white sofa) and is a cost effective way to freshen up a sofa, chair or ottoman. The trick is to keep them neat and cleanly folded. Throws are a decorating feature but they are also there to be used, so keep them accessible.
