6 Ways to Decorate With Faux Fur

With Christmas approaching, we can already feel the crisp, cold air creeping in from our front porches. Winter always comes by quicker than expected, and with that, the sudden desire to hibernate at home, cozy up in front of the fireplace and drink a bit of eggnog.

What better (and quicker) way to bring instant wintery coziness than with fluffy faux fur textures and throws. The casual layering atop blanket chests or dining chairs is a totally desirable but achievable look. Check out our 6 tips on how to decorate with faux fur and feel prepared to hunker down in the snowy seasons.

Faux fur is a winter trend that’ll never go out of style. Effortlessly chic and easy to decorate with, simply cast your throw over the end of your bed, chair or couch to create a candid appeal, with a sumptuous, soft, and luxurious look. There really is no better accessory for those shivery seasons!


People can be hesitant to decorate with faux fur because of its extravagant and lavish look, believing it to only work well with grand and elegant interiors. However, it’s often the houses styled with simplistic or contemporary decor that soft textures suit most.

In floral, bohemian and light hued homes, neutral faux fur throws or cushions add a cozy, homely feel to normally bright and open spaces.


A plush and luxe-looking throw placed on your accent chair or vanity stool breathes new life into your room and makes the morning struggle that much easier. You’ll find yourself jumping off your feet and onto your seat to get ready for the day ahead! The sophisticated accessory in a feminine room goes to show that your home doesn’t have to be traditionally snug for it to feel cozy.

Dark Bedroom

There’s no limit to which room this simple style works wonders in. A big throw on the bed provides you with an extra layer of heat, and adds a splash of glamour to the bedroom too. The shorter days and darker nights will become something you look forward to, knowing you can clamber into bed and feel as snug as a bug this winter.


The secret to making faux fur decor work in a minimalist home? The solution is simple! Stick to the rule of one; one color scheme and one accessory. A rug or throw on your chair softens the look and still suits the modern home decor.


Don’t forget about the dining room! It’s the perfect place to add some furriness. Create an inviting and elegant look in a rustic setting with your favorite throw. Place it on the seat as a cushion, or hang on the back for some extra comfort. Best of all, they’re super easy to replace or take off when the warmth of summer starts to return.
