Cozy Up Your Home for Winter With Faux Fur Accessories

When the temperatures plunge, turn to a tried and true material to keep your home cozy and warm -- fur (of the faux variety).

For all of time, fur has helped man (and woman) stay warm during the cold months. While fur isn't the necessity it was back in the caveman days, it's still a great option for adding the appearance of coziness and warmth (koeslig, if you will) to your dwelling during the wintertime. And thankfully, there are tons of faux fur options now that using the real stuff is a bit out of vogue. Check out how these designers have used faux fur to cozify rooms.

This time of year, I care most about keeping myself warm when I sleep, and there's nothing like snuggling up to a furry bedcovering to make you feel extra cozy at night. Beware, it may be difficult to get out of bed in the morning, though, when your room looks like this one designed by Kelly Sutton.

If a faux fur throw is too much, then keep it small with a furry throw pillow, like the one in this room designed by Lindye Galloway. A pillow adds just enough soft texture to say, "This room is a warm, cozy space."

A faux fur on a bench is a nice alternative too, especially for keeping your bum warm as you sit to put on your shoes in the morning. The sheepskin in this room designed by Judith Balis can be removed and stored during warmer months, offering an easy way to move between seasonal looks.

The fur-on-seat look works well for barstools too, as our favorite cousins, Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri, demonstrate in this room featured on Cousins Undercover. This look has the added bonus of keeping your rear end cozy!
