When I think of cosy, winter living rooms and bedrooms, the first thing that springs to mind is faux fur rugs, paired with throws and an abundance of decorative cushions - all perfect for adding texture.
On the 1st December its 'faux fur day' so there's no better time to embrace this trend than now. Faux fur is perfect for most rooms in your home; add a grey sheepskin rug to a children's room or nursery, as it's easy to maintain, especially with kids around. Use a light grey rug to create a reading nook by the window or create a cozy space for your pet - whatever you choose to do, it is bound to add glamour and sophistication.
A large sheepskin rug looks simply superb beside your bed, and you'll be thankful every cold winter morning that you have something warm and cosy to sink your toes into. Alternatively, if you have a lot of floorspace, either in a larger bedroom or in your living room where the centre of the room is often empty, a faux fur sheepskin rug can look just as stunning.
If you have light oak bedroom furniture, a darker colour is perfect for adding contrast and drama. Our quad sheepskin rug in black is the perfect choice if you are looking to make a statement. Alternatively, for something a little softer, a chocolate brown sheepskin rug is a great choice because it is easy to pair with any decor, whether is simple Scandinavian, classic farmhouse or ultra contemporary.
To really make the most of the trend, add other faux fur items such as cushions and throws to create a gorgeous cosy, log-cabin inspired look to your home. Add Scandinavian furniture with simple decor pieces like a rattan log basket full of logs and hang a large mirror with a golden frame above the fireplace, or underneath a large piece of furniture like a sofa or sideboard, to finish the look perfectly.
How else would you use sumptuous sheepskin rugs in your home and what is your option: real or faux fur?
