Phenomenal fur – part 1

Crikey people, it is chuffing chilly up in the Japan Alps!!  I haven’t been this cold in a long long time, I’m wearing pretty much every single item of clothing in my suitcase right now.  But I would be a lot happier if I had some of this lovely jubbly [faux] fur to keep me warm and toasty.

A long time obsession of mine in interior design, whether it comes in the form of a throw, cushion, rug or stool, you just can’t beat the textural goodness it provides:

So here are my fave inspo piccies around right now – take some time over these lovelies, you won’t regret it!

LOOOOVE these tow modern beauts with the black and white chevron/stripes:

And these fur/chrome stools are pretty fun too:


Added to a Bertoia Wire chair (more next week!) they really soften the look:

And I looooove the terrace of this delectable ski chalet (clicky here for more!):


So which is your fave…?


  1. I love fur, but I don’t think I’d be able to live with interior accessories made of it (real or faux) no matter how much I like the look. I have a very special relationship with fur – I grew up in Russia where faux simply would not do, so although I don’t wear fur now (I’m a veggie and have my dog, so the rest is self-explanatory), I really appreciate and understand it. And as for the photos – those girls are definitely wearing the real thing – 100%. I know Victoria once said that hers is faux, but it really is real.

    It’s pretty warm here in Oz! Hope things warm up for you at least a bit! Loving those little stools in that gorgeous living room 🙂

  3. Elly, here is a comment from a person that is always cold starting with the end of September until May 😀 : you totally got me here, I enjoy every single piece, though I think that brown bears fur blanket looks warmer :)))) (in the third picture). In my bedroom I have white fur rug and I am so happy because it is the only room with rugs, my two cats have a favorite game called: “destroy every rug you find in the house except for the fur rug where you sleep”. Soo…
    Here is also cold, foggy and 4 degrees C, brrrrrr! Have a lovely layers day :*
