The Twillory Co Oldham Cotton Throw Blanket Review

via wayfair.com

Weekly Theme: Apartment Revamp

If you have a cool couch or chair in your living room, office or bedroom, a cool-looking comfy throw is a great way to make a room feel more homey. Not only does it look good, it comes in handy, mostly on sundays when you’re recovering a watching netflix, but also when you have people over who get cold easily. This throw from the Twillory Co is made from 100% cotton so it’s super soft, the open weave gives it a tone of texture, and won’t overheat whoever ends up underneath it. However it is dry clean only, and if you have a pet, this likely won’t be a good pick as claws and paws will easily pull some major threads.

Let’s start the apartment revamp in the bedroom. When was the last time you replaced your bedding? Probably what, like 2 years ago? Even longer?

Brooklinen’s luxe sateen sheets are crazy comfy, super soft and look awesome. Add some character to the one piece of furniture you spent the most time and share your most intimate moments in.
