Cozy It Up with Fur

By Kate Riley January 13, 2010

I’m a huge fan of adding interest to a space with varied textures.  The use of faux fur accessories is one way to bring elegance and softness, especially during these cold winter months.  Faux fur adds a whole lot of cozy, and a little bit of Old Hollywood glamour.  I adore it, in small doses, and when used in a casual stylish way.

I just want to snuggle up and get cozy with these images.  Each room has just the right touch of faux fur, with a single rug, pillow or throw.  They make me feel warmer just looking at them.

I spy with my little eye my own faux fur throw in my living room, photo below. 

Marshalls, $25 dollars. Love it !

And I’ve just finished sewing some faux fur pillows and you’ll never ever believe where I found the fabric.   Tune in tomorrow !

What are your thoughts on faux fur accessories in the home ?


  1. I have loved faux fur for the past decade and I’m so glad it hasn’t gone out of style yet! I adorn myself with it too :). Thanks for the inspirational photos. I’m cozied up under a brown faux Pier One fur right now!

  2. Fur is so fantastically glam. I’ve been thinking about getting a faux fur throw for my bed. I wouldn’t mind the extra warmth and I know my cats would likely adore it.

  3. I love it SO MUCH! Chic, glam, yet still cozy and warm. I often find great faux fur stuff at TJ Maxx of all places. And the prices can’t be beat! Great pictures, they make me want to run home and redecorate immediately! :)

  4. I wasn’t sure at first, but you’ve convinced me with your inspiration pics and your own throw. :) I especially liked the MS and Style at Home photos…show that you don’t have to live in a dark castle in the Middle Ages to rock the fur look. ;)

    Thank you so much for linking up! :) I hope my Dilemma didn’t make you want to claw your eyes out…. :s

  5. So perfect for Winter months! I’ve got a chocolate brown faux fur throw that always adds a little spice to my bedroom during cold weather months!

  6. love love LOVE faux fur incorporated in the home. Especially in monochromatic homes that just yearn for texture – faux fur is so fun to incorporate!

    It is a rainy day in socal – and I’m dying to snuggle under one of those blankets……!!!

    Have a sweet day ~

  7. I have loads of fur in my home – except it’s the real kind that flies off my cat onto EVERYTHING! He’d either love a faux fur throw for “his” couch, or he’d freak out and think it was once one of his buddies. ;)

  8. How come I thought I hated faux fur but now that you’ve shown me all these pictures I suddenly love it? Looks PERFECT for snuggling under and reading!

  9. i have been searching for faux fur fabric to make a throw and a scarf but can’t seem to find them anywhere! where did you find yours?

  10. ahhh, love it!! that’s what i got as gifts for couples this xmas…faux fur throws, all purchased at marshalls and tjmaxx!!!

  11. Love it too. I have a wonderful fur throw that I move all over the house. It always makes a space look warm and luxurious. Hugs, Marty

  12. Ive always been afraid to use fur. Thinking it would be too much- and not “me” but I may be coming around. I actually liked most of those pics- not all but most. I think I like the faux furs in lighter colors!

  13. When I read your intro, I thought “no fake fur for me”! Then, I looked at the pictures and I want one of those throws! I can just imagine curling up under that with a good book.

  14. I think you just gave me an inspiration for the touch of glam I needed for my master bedroom makeover! Now to find one!

  15. I love how the pictures go all the way out to the edge of the wall in the Elle decor photo! I never would think to have so many different colors of frames together. Why does it work? Is it because they are all the same width frame? And the same color matting? Help a novice understand, CG! :)

  16. Love the shot from Point Click Home! I would KILL for that in my home. Too bad I live with a football loving, wing eating man :)

  17. Confess to loving and wearing real fur. Hate me if you must. I don’t mind. Meanwhile, am considering having a coat I no longer wear cut into something I can throw across my feet in winter.
