Hello!  Happy weekend!  It’s been a cold winter so far in Ohio and to stay warm and cozy I have been layering my clothes everyday.  This is pretty much the coat I have been wearing 24/7 to keep me warm and I love it (you can click on the image of it to get the source).


Just like how in the winter we layer clothes to be cozy we also use layers in design to keep a space feeling warm and inviting.  You can read a post all about using layers in design, HERE!


One of my favorite decor accents to use for layering are throws!  I like buying relatively thin throws so that I can use them in my spaces all year round.  You can see in this picture that in my family room I have two throws to cozy up the space.




Other than on sofas, chairs, and benches another place I love to use lightweight throws is at the end of a bed.  Here are some beautiful examples!

I absolutely love THIS throw blanket from Nordstrom but it’s $140 which seems steep for a lightweight blanket.



I have found that Target and Homegoods have the best prices on throws.  They often have beautiful throws for $35 and under!


Here’s an example of a Target blanket I’ve been eyeing–it comes in 5 different colors and gets great reviews.  It ranges from $21 to $35 depending on size.  You can click HERE for the direct link to it.




A new inexpensive source for lightweight throws that I recently found are Turkish towels!  They are beautiful and super versatile!

They are made from a premium cotton which makes them softer, lightweight, and absorb water well (hence they are used as towels).

They have a variety of sizes and their common 39″ x 70″ size is perfect for an end of a bed or sofa throw.


I have found the best prices for these on Amazon.  Here are a few of my favorites (all being around $20 and coming in several different colors)!

It looks like this pretty bathroom used the one above as a towel.

I’ve thought about purchasing a smaller size one like these below as towels to clean my face with at night.



Have you ever used Turkish towels (either as a throw or towel)?  Where are your go-to places to find nice throws for decent prices?  Would love to hear!

I hope you have a great rest of your weekend!!
