When you grow tired of your sofa, you generally have two options: Buy a new one or throw a slipcover over it. The former isn’t exactly budget friendly and the latter doesn’t always fix the problem (sometimes the wrinkle-prone cloth makes it look worse). So when it comes to disguising a drab couch, we’re taking a page out of Taylor Hill’s book and going back to basics with blankets. 

The model shared a snapshot of her living room on Instagram this week, spotlighting her eclectic collection of poufs and gray Restoration Hardware sofa that’s partially swathed in a mashup of striped, floral, and gingham textiles. This styling trick is so low-lift, she didn’t even have to neatly tuck the fabrics into the cushions for it all to look cool.

Here are a few graphic finds to inspire your next update:
