I Am Kind Of Into Fur...

Since it's starting to feel cool right now in the state of TX... and rainy all I really want to do is curl up with a good design book and/or Audrey Hepburn movie and a faux fur throw. Here are some inspirational photos from Elle Decor that got me thinking...

"In the library of Ralph and Ricky Lauren's Manhattan apartment, the wall of lacquer shelving serves as a backdrop for a custom-made sofa, armchairs, and cocktail table by Ralph Lauren Home; the binoculars are antique, the vintage floor lamps are from Wyeth, and the silk rug is by Stark Carpet. " Elle Decor

I absolutely Love this room. It is symmetrical and yet still achieves a softness due to the arrangement of color, natural light...and the fur throw.

"In the living area of Atwood’s apartment, which was renovated by architect Matteo Bermani and decorated by Nate Berkus, a vintage Arredoluce Triennale floor lamp illuminates a sofa by Patricia Urquiola for B&B Italia; the 1970s cocktail table is from, and the vintage hand chair was found at a Manhattan antiques shop."

Once again notice the fur throws and pillows on Brian Atwood (if you don't know who that is.. the famous shoe designer. "I die". Oh and btw i love the gold hand chair.

This photo is of a vacation home in Montana. I love the fur throw on the ottoman, but I also love the foot stool upholstered in cowhide. I feel like the room isn't too overdone, yet the bed is pretty whimsical and rural at the same time.

"At Hobble Diamond Ranch, the Montana vacation home of Susan and Robert Burch, London-based decorators Philip Hooper and Sally Metcalfe added a bucolic touch to the master bedroom with a birch four-poster by Diane Cole Ross." Elle Decor
