As the temperatures continue to fall and everyone’s getting into cozy mode, what better way to warm up your home than with faux fur? It's surprisingly versatile and adds an instant luxe touch. But don’t rush out searching for furry finds just yet. Make sure you know how to incorporate fur into your décor to make it inviting and not over the top.
Pairs Well With…
If clean, modern lines are part of your home’s aesthetic, faux fur can add a welcoming softness to your rooms. While the modern look is chic, it can feel a little cold, which is great for summer but not so much for chilly temps. A fuzzy throw over a wicker chair, fur throw pillows on a sleek leather couch or a lush fur area rug will leave you and your guests craving a steaming mug of cider by the fire. When you’re ready to start thinking about how to pull your look together, check out the showroom at Ebanista.
A Little Goes a Long Way
With fur, less is more. So step away from the faux fur wallpaper and think more along the lines of Coco Chanel’s philosophy of accessorizing. Pick out the faux fur pieces you love and then put one back. Take the throw and the pillows but not the rug. Or the pillows and the rug but lose the throw. Feel your way through the faux fur at Fabricut to get an idea of what types and textures suit your style.
Pink and Gold Fur? Why Not
When you think of the animals from which most fur originates, browns, grays, tans and creams come to mind, perfect neutrals for the winter months. But this is faux fur, so color-wise, don’t be afraid to go bold! If you want to keep the fur look year round, consider pastels and creams to keep that cozy feel without being too heavy during the spring and summer months. Browse through the collection of colorful fabrics and fur at Kravet when you’re ready to start building your color palette.
But Which Room?
If you’re not sure which room to showcase your new faux fur decor, consider starting in the bedroom. A throw on the bed or a fluffy rug to spare your footsies from a cold floor will warm up your body and your bedroom. And when you’re ready to branch out, there’s no room you can’t incorporate faux fur, even a home office. The Holly Hunt showroom is a great place to start when you’re ready to be inspired.
Don’t be afraid of faux fur. It doesn’t bite! With just the right touches and colors of faux fur, your home will be everyone’s favorite comfy hangout. When you’re ready to fur it up, you’ll find everything you need at the shops and showrooms in the Dallas Design District.
