Nesting: The 10 blankets I'm coveting this fall

Like my children, I am a creature of comfort who can usually be found huddled under a soft blanket as soon as the temperature dips below 70 degrees. I love blanket weather, but I also love the way a great blanket inherently adds warmth and life to a room. Below are the blankets I'm coveting for lazy Saturday mornings, evenings by the fire pit and nesting these next few months.

The Splurge
My mother always said I have champagne taste on a beer budget. At $391.49 this would be a luxury for me but no doubt this oversized, double cable knit throw would keep me warm for decades.
I need this cozy blanket!

The Classic
Pendleton wool blankets are a classic that we've seen a lot of lately and for good reason. Starting at $149, they will stand the test of time.

The National Park collection would be equally at home in my son's room, as a bedspread in a lake house or as one of the interpretations below.  I'd love to use one draped over the loveseat I'm no longer so in love with.

The Gift
These oversized, monogrammable throws from Pottery Barn are $89 (before monogram), come in a range of colors and are made of soft acrylic yarn. They'd be great as a housewarming gift or for someone in need of a little pampering.

The Plush Throw
If I had this blanket, I would hibernate in it all winter. This ivory plush throw from Amazon looks sumptuous and sells for $79.99 with free shipping. I've seen similar ones at T.J. Maxx and on One King's Lane for even less.


Pretty Neutrals
In shades of grey (and gold) these two fringed blankets can add a subtle layer of coziness to your living room or bedroom without breaking the bank.
