Throws add so much visual warmth & coziness to a room all winter long. Don't place them carefully- just throw them casually over the back of a chair or sofa or on a bed for the best "unstudied" effect. Try it- you'll like it!
If temperatures are forgiving this Fall, try an outdoor Autumn feast. Decorate your table with plaid tablecloth or even a throw. Don't forget to keep extra blankets on hand in case it gets chilly at night.
