Just in time for spring: Spruce up an understated gray wool blanket with a neon-colored hem. We spotted this blanket strewn across the sofa at the Wonju Residential Resort, designed and styled by Dutch designer Piet Boon, and haven't stopped thinking about all the possible color combinations. If you're handy with a sewing machine, all you need is an overlock stitch—and if not, a quick dash to your local seamstress should do the trick. Above: A gray blanket gets a makeover from Piet Boon .

Another option is Ikea's Henny Bedspread in dark gray for $39.99.
