Even in the hottest of summers, a cute throw blanket is a perfect addition to outdoor (or indoor!) entertaining. There is always a need to snuggle in under covers and enjoy a bonfire or to sit outside enjoying a warm breeze. Combine that with some fun patterned throw pillows and you’re all set to create a cozy summer environment. Throw blankets can be used as a fun accessory or as a bold statement to a room. Let’s check out some great options I found scouring the web:

  1. The punch of color throw: This one is all about fun and fiesta. The bold colors scream summertime.
  2. Nautical summer throws: If you want to bring a little bit of the water indoors, then think about a corresponding throw blanket in similar colors. These blankets in various shades of blues (as well as a sunny sand color) do just that. If you can’t live by the ocean or lake, then this is a great nautical option. And if you do… all the more fitting!
  3. Madras! To me, madras means summer. Though I’m mostly used to seeing madras in clothing, this nod to fashion is the perfect home accessory. Plus, with such a range of colors, it’s sure to fit most color combos for your home.
  4. Geometric throws: This one is my absolute favorite. It’s a lovely pattern, made even better by its ability to also act as a picnic blanket – and it comes in pink!
  5. Stripe throws: We all love stripes; of course we love it even more in a throw blanket. Am I right?

So, do you use summer throws, or are you all about soaking in the warm air? What are some of your favorite throws out there? Add them in the comments!
