With the cold weather approaching I find myself coming home from a long days 'playing Rachel' and all I want to do is plop on a comfortable chaise lounge and curl up under a cashmere throw.
Throw blankets not only add instant comfort to a room but they also can be a key design element. Which brings me to my lesson of the day:
Do not underestimate the power of a throw.
Sometimes, it is all you need to add a punch of color to your room!
To sum it up: Throw a punch.
And why not make it cashmere?
Ever since I saw this Bobby Mcalpine bedroom in House Beautiful I have been wanting this bright baby blue cashmere throw. This particular brand is Yarnz and it's a little too pricey for me. So I've been on the lookout for the perfect blue throw ever since. I am YET to find it...under $100.
Mcalpine tends to throw punches in many of his rooms...
Example A: *LOVE*
*that actually might be someone's shirt. Oh well....
That throw needs some fluffing!!

I love the purple color here. This particular blanket (on the bench) is a beautiful Sferra cashmere and runs around $400 a throw. Yikes... but Yummy.

Williams Sonoma has a popular collection of cashmere throws for $268- and as you can see they have every color of the rainbow.
Restoration Hardware's cashmere throws are on sale from $300 to $103.99
Pretty good for 100% cashmere- might be my best bet! Has anyone been able to find a good one for less?
