Decorating With Faux Fur 

Luxurious, cozy and comfortable — faux fur has the ability to make even the most contemporary of interiors feel inviting. The plush texture and touchable softness adds richness throughout the home. Not to mention it’s a seriously hot interior design trend!

Not sure where to begin? Read our top tips for adding a touch of faux fur fabulous to your home. 

Start Small

A few pillows here and there are a relatively easy and inexpensive way to dip your toes into the faux fur pond. Interior designers add faux fur to create a sense of coziness to an otherwise traditional and clean space, so it’s easy to pair new faux fur pillows with existing soft furnishings. Pro tip: opt for lighter colors for a soft look that will work year-round. 

Rug It Out

One of the most traditional ways of incorporating faux fur? In the form of a rug of course! Cozy for your feet and easy on the eyes, a faux fur rug will add instant warmth to a space without stealing the limelight from the rest of your furnishings. Often found in an irregular shape, a faux fur rug can also add a lot of visual, interest to an otherwise structured space.

Make Sure It’s Washable

You can wash most faux fur in cold water and hang to dry, but it's still a good idea to check the care instructions. As much as we love to look at faux fur, we want to use it too! Easy care options will always be preferred over their counterparts. 

Throw in a Throw 

Fashionable and functional, you can never have too many faux fur throws. Whether you’re thoughtfully draping it on a tired old sofa, or cuddling beneath it for movie night, it’s a win-win!

Pillow, throw, rug, or all of the above! One thing’s for sure — whichever route you take, all roads lead to cozy!

DIY: Spooktacular Halloween Home

It’s the spookiest time of the year! There’ll be parties for hosting and goblins and ghosting. But first — we must decorate!

Don’t be scared, we have some simple DIY projects to get your home Halloween-ready before you can say BOO!

Scare with Sheets

Create the ultimate “abandoned house” effect simply by draping white sheets over all of the furniture. It’s creepy just thinking about it. Added bonus? It protects your furniture from spills and Pixie Stix accidents.

Creepy Candlelight

Fill your home with tons of candles (artificial ones work, too) to create an ominous and spooky vibe. Tall skinny candles in antique candelabras will create the ultimate mood lighting for a vibrant Halloween party.

Frightening Florals

Spray paint old/inexpensive artificial flowers black to create scream-worthy arrangements throughout the house. For an extra creep-factor, add in fallen tree-branches from the yard! 

Upcycled Poison Bottles 

Remove the labels from your beverages of choice, and spray paint bottles a matte black. Add new handwritten labels and display your “poisonous” options as a group. 

Freaky Floors

Of course we can’t forget to decorate our floors! Tried and tested, our favorite DIY project is the dead body crime scene outline. Grab some masking tape, enlist the help of a willing model, and outline away! You can even take it up a notch with some “Caution: Crime scene” tape.
