Faux Fur

Hello everyone!

Since it hasn't felt like Fall yet, I've held off on putting out the traditional pumpkins etc. However, that hasn't stopped me from adding some cool weather accents to my home.  These can be used throughout the winter.  I love texture and soft materials, so faux fur fits that bill!  It has really warmed up my mostly white rooms.  

My most recent fur acquisition is this small brown sheepskin rug from Pottery Barn.  I decided to use it draped over my chair rather than on the floor.  



I love the brown color (called cappuccino).  I usually only see white in stores.  This one brings nice contrast to the white slipcovers.


I can't tell you how soft and plush it is!

I also have these fur pillows on my sofas.  One is brown and the other is ivory.  The brown ones feel like silk!


I've had this faux fur stool for a long time.  I like that the fur is long on it.


Another fur pillow sits in the chair in front of my secretary.  It's considered mohair.


And finally, I have a large white fur rug in my foyer.  It would normally not work out if we used that door all the time, but we come in through the garage.  So, it makes a pretty rug when you first walk in from the front door.  


It feels very elegant in there too.

So, if you're looking for alternatives for cooler weather decor, try some faux fur!  It will last long past Fall and make your home feel extra cozy too.

I've been contemplating something "furry" but so far haven't gotten anything. Must be soft!

Faux fur looks great with all the whites in your house. It has been sooooo, soooo HOT here lately that I can't even think of Fall. xo

I think we must be twins Kelly :). I have a fur rug like that (although the color is just off white) and was thinking about draping it somewhere. Currently it's on the floor by my bedside, sort of hidden from view.

Love all these cozy touches for fall! The sheepskin rug is beautiful and I love the cappuccino color. It goes so nicely with your slipcovers.

I used to have a lot of faux fur, back in my lodge decorating days, I need to see if I still have the pillows tucked away. I know my daughter has some zebra ones!
