Did you know that fall is officially only a week away? That’s right, it’s time to swap the barbecues and garden parties for autumn leaves and pumpkin spiced lattes because the end of summer is nigh. Though the sunshine and vacation vibes will be sorely missed, fall does come with some perks. I, for one, can’t wait for cozy nights in by the fireplace, mulled wine in hand and a comfy throw draped over my shoulders for good measure. Not convinced? Talk to me after you’ve seen this round up of snuggly blankets. You’ll be counting down the days in no time.
For a touch of indulgent glam this fall you can’t go wrong with a luxe faux fur throw. Soft, stylish and positively sumptuous, nonchalantly drape over the arm of a sofa or armchair for all the #instahome feels.
Subtle chevron detailing adds depth and dimension to this snow gray number from West Elm. This would fit perfectly within a minimalist aesthetic!
For a pretty take on faux fur, think pink. This shaggy blanket from Urban Outfitters boasts a crimped finish for added coziness. I love the idea of adding this to an industrial wire Bertoia side chair for a fun contrast of texture and style.
Remember last fall when chunky knit blankets were a permanent fixture on Scandinavian design blogs? Yeah, that’s still a thing. Think of them as a giant woolen hug. Add candles into the mix for a truly hygge experience.
This gray knitted beauty by Ohhio is what snuggly blanket dreams are made of. Can you believe Ukraine-based designer, Anna Mo, uses gigantic 40mm needles to handcraft these chunky pieces? Reviewers have named this the coziest blanket in the world, which I believe is as good an excuse as any to hop onto the knitted blanket train this fall.
The haphazard knotted design of Little Dandelion’s snuggly blanket offering makes it a piece of art in knitted throw form. Available in a color range spanning cheerful green and tangerine to the more subdued sand and fawn, I’m leaning towards the brighter shades to make a splash in my otherwise minimalist bedroom.
These snuggly blankets are for the big kids among us. Though they may not be entirely practical, there’s no denying that they have the fun factor, which is exactly what a dark, dreary night needs.
Wannabe mermaids (and mermen) listen up – I’m about to make your childhood fantasy come true. You may have seen the mermaid tail blanket doing the rounds on social media earlier this year, and if their ‘sold out’ status on Amazon is anything to go by, it seems the trend isn’t letting up any time soon. Tara’s Etsy versions are made from silky Minky Fabric, ensuring you’ll be snug as a bug on your mermaid adventure. Mermaids not your thing? Check out these jawsome shark blankets as an alternative.
Become a literal night owl with this quirky hooded blanket by MJ of MJ’s Off the Hook Designs. Unfortunately for some, MJ only sells this piece as a pattern, meaning there will be some DIY involved, but I think that’s a small price to pay for a blanket that’s both cozy and unique. When not in use, it can be displayed as a decorative blanket or folded into itself to form a cushion.
Have these snuggly blankets convinced you to welcome fall with open arms?
