Chunky sweaters are a classic staple to cold weather closets. They become a necessity in these winter months and the beautiful knit details that each one offers compliment outfits perfectly. These sweaters can be dressed up for a party or dressed down for a casual outing. They can also be paired with other textures and patterns.

Translate this style trend to home design and you have a cozy, stylish space that has warmth and character. How do I add these elements, you ask? The easiest way to add this texture to a space is with pillows, blankets, and throws.

For a simple yet meaningful touch, decorate with a simple sweater throw blanket. Use a color that compliments yet stands out on the piece that you are decorating. Another easy way to use this trend is in throw pillows. Mix them in with your normal pillows to make what you already own a little cozier!
