An orange throw for the living room


I've been hunting for an orange blanket for the living room. Easier said than done, since I wanted something attractive, preferably patterned, AND big-sized. I like to wrap myself up like a burrito, not just daintily cover my lap, you know? It's the best way to watch TV. (Side note: one of the greatest clips from Parks and Rec is a tour of Tom's apartment: it's blankie heaven.)

I found this organic cotton twin-sized blanket at my local Target. It's orange and beige with a geometric pattern, and my feet don't stick out. Perfect.

PRETTY! Nice find!

Sooo... it's for the living room... and you photo'd it in the parlour on the settee? Ha. Okay, I know... the parlour is a much brighter room. It does go nicely with that color, too. I bet you could even snuggle up there and just look out the window at your lovely-colored trees!

Ha, you're on to me! Yes, the living room is sooo dark. Parlor was easier. And I do plan to use it there, too. I'll probably just drag it around with me like Linus.

I've also been looking for an orange blanket for my home. I came across this one, but was skeptical of the fabric.

Fill us in-- is it soft? Does it keep you warm?

I wish we could all just escape to Tom's apt...

It definitely keeps me warm. It's not soft, though. It's not scratchy or anything, but it's not a plush or fleecy texture at all, which would have made it AMAZING. But it's good enough for me.

Oh, how I wish we had target here in Europe - I have been looking for a blanket exactly like this - to go with my orange rug!

This throw is beautiful! Orange is my fave color and I can't help but buy every orange throw and pillow I see!
