Trend alert! How you can use those sheepskin rugs you see everywhere

Do you feel it?  There is a definite chill in the air, even in sunny southern California.  What better time than now to cozy up your home so you will be ready when the real cold weather sets in.  And there is no easier way than with the addition of sheepskin.

This throw pillow is the perfect partner for all your patterned accent pillows.  Toss one or two of these babies on your sofa or chair and you will find it difficult to stay awake on a wintry afternoon.

I am in love with these fur covered chairs from Mitchell Gold.  Just the right amount of funk paired with a warm metal frame.  Flank that big stone fireplace in your mountain cabin with a pair or just pretend you have a mountain cabin by adding one of these chairs to your living room during the winter months.

Top your wall to wall carpet with a sheepskin rug and create a comfy and warm spot for your feet during those late night feedings in the baby’s nursery.

The rug used in the nursery was the very affordable version from Ikea.

And who doesn’t love a pouf?  This sheepskin version from West Elm can be moved from room to room.  Slide one up to the fireplace or use it as an ottoman in front of your favorite chair…I promise it will become the favorite spot for your family and guests.

I have a small sheepskin rug that I toss over a leather ottoman in our family room and it immediately ups the cozy factor both visually and physically.  Is there a spot in your home for sheepskin?
