Today is cold and drizzly in Fort Worth. A good day to snuggle up on the couch and watch "Parasite" since it managed to catapult itself into the Oscar record books on Sunday. A throw is an integral part of this couch snuggling, along with popcorn, hot tea, and pjs. But a throw is not only functional, it adds warmth and layers to a room. It says, "here, sit down and get comfy, have a cuppa tea". We love the texture and color balance it adds to a room too. Lots of color? A chunky sweater knit throw in ivory provides a breather. A more neutral palette? Add a pop of mustard or pink for the perfect punch. Here are 8 ways you can use a throw in your decorating.
