Fur & Leather
Tuesday, October 02, 2012
It's no secret PETA probably isn't the biggest fan of me. I love buttery leather, soft furs, and a big, juicy ass steak. I'm okay with hunting, and the last thing I could ever be is a vegetarian. When it comes to the home, I love mother nature. Leather, fur, wood, animals hides, natural stone - anything that comes from nature, I love it all. I think there's nothing more comforting than bringing the outside in and surrounding yourself with a little of mother nature's finest - curling up on a beaten leather couch, wrapped in a warm fur blanket, sipping a glass of red wine. It's heaven.
The real deal for any of nature's lovliest materials can run you a pretty hefty bill at the end of the day, though. Sometimes it's best to splurge, and sometimes it's best to save to get the look you want in your home. Using the amazing combination of fur and leather as inspiration, I found a few great choices at easy stores you already know of that will help transform your living room with just a few simple additions. And by the way, faux-fur is an excellent choice to keep your costs down as long as it looks great with your decor (and your bank account!)
