It’s no secret that I’m a fan of soft, timeless textiles. They’re easy to style and snuggle, they add warmth to your home (visually and physically), and they’re one of the most functional interior accessories you can buy. Blankets and throws are one of those home items that I tend to hoard or stock pile because they’re simple to switch out seasonally, they’re just super useful, and they make great gifts. Almost every year I’ve shared a roundup of some sort and thought as we’re heading into winter and the holiday season, it was time to compile my favorite comforting blankets & throws… all of which aren’t going out of style anytime soon! Click through to check out these classic options…
I’m partial to luxe materials like wool, cotton, mohair, alpaca, and linen, but really anything that is super soft, has a nice hand, drapes easily, and is ideal for snuggling is a win in my book. Some of the blankets and throws in our home are over 15 years old! I was serious when I said I like to keep and stockpile them.

I’d love to hear your favorites from the collage! Which ones are you gravitating toward? Lately I’ve been on a major tartan, plaid, and buffalo check kick (if you couldn’t already tell, judging by the items in my shop).
These traditional patterns (plaid, checks, stripes, windowpane, etc) are my favorite and they feel very timeless me… for fall, winter, and the holiday season ahead- these are all throws I enjoy styling in my home this time of year.
Do you have a favorite pattern when it comes to blankets and throws, or do you prefer to stick with solids? I enjoy mixing both in the same room to balance each other.
The texture and softness is another big element I’m picky about when it comes to throw blankets. In the design industry, we call it “the hand”. If you hear someone say, that fabric has a good hand- that just means it feels nice.
Versatility is something else I consider before buying new blankets and throws. What is the cut like? Sometimes I prefer a smaller size, so it can have multiple uses- a travel blanket, an oversized scarf, a wrap, etc. I also think smaller sizes are easier to style. Occasionally, I’ll opt for a really large blanket… especially if I’m styling it on a bed. It really just depends on the use!
A good, well made blanket or throw never goes out of style! I hope this post got your wheels turning or makes you appreciate your existing go-to blankets. As we enter the coziest season of all, these are the home items I’m reaching for… then again, it has been snowing here. Ha! Have a great day, friends!
