We are having a heatwave this weekend in Southern California – but most of the rest of the country is well into fall! You may be thinking of ways to bring a little warmth into your home about now, so I’ve brought you a selection of pillows and throws that will cozy up your couch!
Cozy Up That Couch!
Pillows, Pillows Everywhere
Can you keep a secret? My husband hates pillows! He thinks I buy them just to get in his way when he is trying to get comfortable. I, on the other hand, think pillows are amazingly beautiful and contribute to the feeling of comfort in my home.
Since I am the one who decorates our home – guess what? We have lots of pillows! But, being ever practical, I prefer to purchase pillow covers when I’m ready for an updated look and use the same inserts over and over again.
Storage is so much easier this way – have you ever tried to stuff a half dozen pillows into your linen closet? Pillow covers, on the other hand, take up no more space than a hand towel.
I like to buy my pillow covers one size smaller than my inserts, for that overstuffed designer look.
Here are some of my favorites from Amazon:
Nineteen color choices mean these textured stripe pillow covers are guaranteed to match your decor – but do try this mustard yellow for fall! Seven different sizes are available, making this a super-flexible option.
I love that these pillow covers are full of fall leaves and colors, but don’t lock you into any particular Holiday – they will look good for months! With the many different styles, they will fit into almost any decor, as well.
Buffalo check updates the farmhouse look when it’s oversized and in a modern black and white. Bonus for having the print on both sides of the pillow covers, which come in a set of two.
Add a Bohemian touch to your sofa with a blast of color! These four pillow covers are sure to brighten up even the cloudiest of days.
What a deal – you get six covers in this set! I love the striking modern black and white design, and especially the one faux leather cover for contrast!
Throws and Blankets for the Couch
How many throws do you keep in your living room when it’s cold outside? I try to make sure there is one available for each person, so there’s never an issue of someone going without. And to be honest, I keep a summer-weight throw around all year long, because I freeze in air-conditioning!
There are so many gorgeous throws available right now, I might have to nudge that up to two per person!
Super-soft faux cashmere, lightweight, machine washable, and non-shedding. Already sounds like a dream, right? But take a look at that gorgeous herringbone pattern and the contrasting fringe!
This throw comes in a choice of eight colors, but I am partial to this perfect fall shade of pumpkin orange.
You again get a choice of eight colors in this soft flannel blanket, but I love the look of a classic, neutral ivory with that fun pompom trim.
Organic bamboo? Yes, please! This throw is sure to be lightweight and yet still wrap warmly around you. And how cute is this elephant pattern?
For the ultimate in luxury, try this frosting-tipped, extra long faux fur blanket, great for snuggling under with a special someone. Plenty of neutral shades and colors to choose from.
I can picture myself on a rainy day with a good book, a cup of tea, and this fuzzy number! The subtle ombre stripes keep the look fresh while the texture adds drama to any decor.
When looking to cozy up your couch, the choices are nearly endless. Whether you prefer an organic cotton or a faux-fur, a bright color or a soothing neutral, there are so many options! Think about all of the different ways you can combine pillows and throws for different looks.
Do give pillow covers a try – you’ll never go back to buying full pillows again. Just remember to buy them smaller than your inserts!
