Chunky Home Decor

Every winter it seems that chunky home decor items get a bit bulkier. Add a knitted throw, rug or scatter in this style to your home to be right on trend.

Soft under foot

I desire one of these chunky knitted rugs for my own home. The one of the right is from the talented designer Anna Mo . Have a look at her gorgeous range on Etsyfrenchconnection boredpanda



Try this natural fiber throw with muted bedding to add a dash of texture to your bedroom. You could even try your hand at it yourself! Have a look at my knitted rug tutorial that was done with the same twine – it works like a charm. mondaytosundayhome


50 shades

I love the yellow blanket stitch added to the grey chunky blanket on the right. It just adds the right amount of colour pop from Anthropologie! digsdigs



This must be my favourite over-sized knitted blanket ever! It’s done in the same tones as the bedding and the textures show off as the light hits the chunky knit. I would love to take a nap under this beauty. freepeople


Retail therapy

Shops are filled with knitted items in different materials. Have a look at the knits @home, Mr Price Home, Weylandts and Hello Pretty. costmad dwellbeautiful


Just add colour

 Chunky knits tend to mostly be in muted tones, from white to grey and natural. I love the impact this mustard yellow blanket from H&M makes on the modern bedroom. athomeinlove


Clever designers

Furniture designers caught onto the trend and have been incorporating knits in their designs. trendhunter gessato


Fashion forward

According to the fashion experts the cable knit will be huge this season. It’s always interesting to see how it gets interpreted in decor, a great example being this scatter and blanket on the left. busybeingfabulous Etsy


Good enough to eat

These gorgeous place mats just made my ‘have to have’ list. I love the tones on this table setting in grey, charcoal and the natural elements incorporated in marble and wood. 79ideas


I hope you found this article inspiring and are rushing out the door to go shop for a chunky knit!

Happy styling,


Knit one slip one

As I’m writing this post I am layered with three sets of clothes and two pairs of socks – it’s freezing cold and I’m loving it. Just because it’s the best excuse to drink way too much hot chocolate!

Chunky knits are such a lovely way of celebrating winter. It’s an ode to texture and I have found the most creative people that have designed decor items with an ‘out of the box’ approach. View the shopping page at the end of the post.

Have a look at how chunky knits are introduced in furniture, lighting and even as wallpaper. We have dedicated the month of July to all things winter and will show you how to knit your own carpet with the least amount of effort to introduce a bit of chunky into your home.
