Take a Walk on the Wild Side

December 31, 2014


A trend that is as stylish as it is cozy, gets a furry friend stamp of approval from traditionalists and modernists alike. That right, I am talking about faux fur and animal prints. From the streets to the runways, this trend has been seen everywhere. Coming in all different patterns and styles, animal hides and furs are the trend to rock this winter season.

My absolute favorite way to highlight the animal hide and fur motif is through different styles of chairs or area carpets. Here are a few of my favourite ways to get wild.

First is the ever-so-stylish and timeless zebra rug. A rug is one of the easiest ways to work the hide trend into any home. It’s the perfect graphic element to throw with almost any setting. The zebra hide makes a serious statement and is sure keep you cozy winter yet filled with adventure! I love how this room is so simple and the rug really stands out. And that mane- I love it!

 Next is the gorgeous Elka chair. I cannot get over this eclectic yet oh-so-feminine style. I adore the solid color take of hide on hair. A solid fur is a great starting point for those new to the fur trend because it’s easy to match with any other solid color. When making your first hide purchase, stick to neutrals like browns, grays and blacks, but if you’re feeling daring try a beige and silver devore rug.

Last up is faux fur. You can do no wrong adding a few pieces to your décor. This is one of my favorite takes on the animal infusion because of its luxurious texture. Faux furs add such depth and warmth to any space yet is just wild enough to keep things from being all too boring when creating a monochromatic scheme. 


I challenge you to take a walk on the wild side this winter!
