A little faux fur never hurt anyone

Snow, and lots of it, has blanketed much of the country these past couple of weeks.  And while it is certainly beautiful

it can make you chilly just looking at it.   Warm things up with hints of faux fur throughout your home.

This ottoman from Z Gallerie will visually warm even the coldest of contemporary spaces.  And don’t you love those acrylic legs?  They look like ice cubes beneath that winter white fur.  Best part…it’s on sale!

One of the best parts of these late winter storms is that most of the cozy items in the stores are on sale, including these perennial favorites from Pottery Barn.

I toss this faux sheepskin rug from Ikea over my leather ottoman in the winter and it adds instant cozy to my small family room.  And let’s face it, leather can be pretty chilly when it gets cold.  You must agree it adds just the right touch to this little girl’s nursery.

And for the budget conscious, how about this hairy little fellow?  How cute would this be placed next to the fireplace or as a casual footstool in front of an arm chair?
