Easy home decor updates to bring summertime indoors, starting at just $13

Experts say it’s time to box up those wool blankets and break out airy woven and crochet throws. “Using a lighter-weight throw blanket in the summer months offers an element of elegance while also being functional on cooler evenings, and when your partner has the A/C cranking,” explains Francesco Bilotto, design and entertaining expert.

This soft-textured knit throw looks super pricey but is just $20 and looks like you picked it up at a high-end boutique. You can choose from 25 solid colors, which interior design pros recommend to give rooms a fresh, clean pop of color.

Take your design prowess to the next level by learning how to stage the blanket — tossed casually over the arm of your couch, folded tidy into thirds and draped off-center — there are so many approaches.

Added bonus, Bilotto says summer throws make great last-minute tablecloths for outdoor entertaining and picnics. We are impressed with the quality of this one, and 30k other reviewers agree, too.
