We are midway through the first month of 2016 and I feel like I am just now getting into the swing of things. Having said that, welcome to this week’s edition of Friday Favorites: Adding warmth with pillows & throws.
I mentioned before that I felt like our home was so stark once we packed away all of the Christmas lights and decoration. So I have been adding pillows and throws to inject some warmth into our spaces. There is nothing like getting cozy under a thick chunky blanket and watching a movie or reading a great book.
All throughout the Christmas Season, I was waiting on some cold temperatures and snow, instead I turned the air conditioner on Christmas Night, it was so warm. Now we are getting the colder temperatures and I love it!
The first picture I am sharing is a handmade thick crocheted creamy white blanket that we received as a wedding gift almost 22 years ago.
This is my napping blanket. I will be wide awake but once I cover up with this thick afghan I am down for the count. This is one of my most treasured gifts.
Have you seen those ultra thick & chunky throws in some of the shops on Etsy? This is one of my favorites. I really, really like this. Isn’t it gorgeous?
Seriously though, don’t you just love that thick, chunky throw? O.k. moving on with Friday Favorites: Adding warmth with pillows & throws.
Right before Christmas I picked up a few pillows at Target on clearance.
This pillow is really soft and I like the texture of it. I was feeling like everything was flat (if you know what I mean) so I added a few different textures to the sofa by adding more pillows and throws with different materials.
I added a thick and fuzzy creamy pillow with a fun pompom fringe to our leather chair. This chair just looked too serious and formal sitting by the fireplace. The pompom pillow lightens it up a bit. I picked it up at T.J. Maxx.
I also picked up the grey one there as well.
The grey pillow is pilling a bit more than I like but it is any easy fix. I just need to get out my fabric shaver and run it over the pillow. It only takes a few minutes to do. I imagine that’s why it was on clearance. Did you notice it matches the throw on the leather chair? I bought it awhile back at T.J. Maxx, you can see the full post here.
We have a bench in our kitchen that the kids use to put their shoes on in the morning. I added a creamy throw and pillow to warm that space up a bit.
I found the throw at HomeGoods and the pillow at Marshalls awhile back. I like the added texture and warmth they bring to this little bench area. I am sure the boys could not possibly care less that it looks warm and cozy. They just need a place to quickly put their shoes on and rush out the door.
I hope you have a great weekend. Happy Friday!
Until Next Time,
