We all know that winter can be brutal, but mixed right in there with sub-zero temps and snow that needs shoveling is one under-appreciated upside to the coldest season: It’s the perfect excuse to hibernate.
You know what I’m talking about. The moment the weather app reports anything below 50 degrees, don’t you just take it as a sign to close the door tightly behind you and stay indoors until at least March (heck, maybe even May?) Me, too.
So it’s maybe no coincidence that just as we’re plunging into this year’s polar vortex, faux fur home accents are having a major moment. All of a sudden, the cozy fabric is everywhere — from foxy blankets to cuddle up under to shearling-draped side-chairs that make a chilly kitchen feel 20 degrees warmer.
But from a design standpoint, faux fur is more than just cozy. It also adds instant glamour like no other fabric. Check out the the plush zebra rug just below you as proof. Its graphic print and bold texture turns the basic room it’s occupying into something you might pine over on Instagram. Or try this little test: Imagine the pair of checkered mock-mink pillows ahead on your sofa. Instant upgrade!
My advice: Toss a faux-sheepskin in front of a fire, cover yourself in a plush throw, and sit there sipping Schnapps-spiked hot chocolate until spring.
