When we’re thinking about fall, we all get super excited for its arrival. It’s THE season to get cozy indoors and enjoy movie marathons with the family plus some me time with that book you’ve been planning on reading.

That being said,

What could help you get comfier than some faux fur items around the house? Faux fur is so welcoming and cozy that the simple thought of it already feels like a warm hug.

Most designers think of it as a way of inviting nature indoors while still keeping it luxurious, and also, of course, a way to stay cruelty-free.

More than that,

Keep in mind that faux fur is something that really catches the eye, the definition of a decor accent, so avoid overdoing it. The ideal is to add one or two pieces in a room, no more than that. Also, try adding these items to a neat and tidy space, and the faux fur will make it special and more inviting.

“If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans." ― James Herriot

Along with the many great things about faux fur, one is that it pairs very well with many types of materials and textures, such as:

  • Wood
  • Silk
  • Velvet
  • Heavy wool

So it doesn’t really matter all that much which season of the year it is, you can always make it work. Don’t be afraid to pair it with different materials or styles!

Faux Fur Blanket

A cozy blanket will be lovely to snuggle at night.

One thing we do not recommend is getting colored faux fur, that will take away the natural tone it carries. What you can do, if you wish to add some color, is finding a light-colored piece, such as this creamy, brown-ish blanket. As a matter of fact, these creamy hues actually look more natural than the white faux fur, if that’s the look you’re going for.

Faux Fur Pillows

Pillows are awesome to add eye-catching elements.

Those who know me, know I’m the crazy pillow lady. I can’t see any without wanting to bring them all home! Same rule applied to these faux fur pillows when I found them. One thing I really liked here is that there are four color options - and surely I’ll get them all. If you’re anything like me, I’m sure you’re already picturing them in your home!

Here’s the catch:

Most people are tactile, which means that if you have something like a faux fur pillow right there on the couch, people will feel more welcome and invited to sit down and enjoy the soft touch of the faux fur.

Faux Fur Chair

A chair for your home office will be the right pick.
Get this chair at Amazon.

Why not give your home office a bit of pizzazz with an awesome - and comfy - faux fur chair as well? It will sure make work hours a lot more fun and stylish, especially if you’re onto creative work. This chair will give you the inspiration to create amazing things.

Faux Fur Throw

A throw can be put anywhere and look gorgeous.

There are several things in your house that could benefit from a throw to complete its look, for example:

  • The living room couch
  • Chairs
  • Your bed
  • The kids’ hang out spot

I can already imagine the kids getting all snuggly with the throw and their teddies, taking a nap right there with all the comfort. What a lovely scene!
