Faux Fur in Decor…

Hello, all! It’s Mari here from Arcadian Home blog, a fabulous place to find lots of interior design inspirations, including glitzy, colorful wall art and all sorts of lovely lighting fixtures. I’m so excited to be visiting B with a guest post about faux fur in decor.

Faux or real fur? Which would you choose? Today, I’ve brought along eight images to illustrate a few of the many ways rooms can be warmed up (and glammed up) with this fashionable décor detail. Please enjoy!

A large faux fur rug is at once beautiful and cozy underfoot. Several decorative pillows also add appealing furry texture to the sofa.

A white fur throw brings cozy to an arm chair in this stylish little library. Contributing to the glam feel is shiny round metal table topped with a pure white Modern Pendant Light.

3_Faux_Fur

Large faux fur throws for the bed seem to be a must have right now. This luxurious look is perfect for a chic space with tufted white headboard. The design merges rustic, contemporary and a bit of global style to create a gorgeous bedroom retreat.

A more classic neutral space with a few contemporary touches is warmed up by a casually draped faux fur throw with a luxuriously soft lining and trim.

In this eclectic bedroom, a huge faux fur throw works wonderfully with the Moroccan rug, Modern Pendant Lights  and a creamy Barcelona chair.

This glamorous living room with glitzy fabrics and sleek acrylic coffee table shows off an appealing white faux fur on the sofa.

7_Faux_Fur

We’re seeing the lovely look of acrylic chairs paired with lush white faux fur showing up all over the blogosphere. Here a curvy chair and wispy textured fur are quite stunning with a vintage vanity turned desk.

8_Faux_Fur

This rustic bedroom goes eclectic with a French settee, upholstered headboard, massive table lamp and faux fur on the bed and on the floor. A black fabric binding nicely ties the rug to the other black elements in the space.

Wish I was There {Coachella}…

As a lover of music, especially live music, art and fashion, it is only natural to find myself daydreaming of being at Coachella, right?!!  I love the free spirit that this amazing festival seems to draw out of everyone.  The bohemian style that covers the grounds is beautiful.  Each person has his or her own look that comes together to create an amazing art piece at this one festival.  It is beautiful.  At least, from what the pictures can show.  I seriously need to start saving and planning so I can go next year.  I know whoever is playing I will enjoy, since the music that is also played at Coachella is totally my style.  I mean look at this year’s lineup – freaking amazing.  Now, join me in my daydream and look at some of these lovies…

As a lover of art and a lover of fashion, this fabulous post by Absolutely Fabulous had me swooning.  I love how they took classic pieces of art and used them as a muse and paired some MOO Sunglasses to spice up their rendition.  And then on top of that, I also am falling in love with their whole blog.  These two ladies have class, style, sas and looks like they have a lot of fun with life – such an inspiration, I had to do a little feature and share this gem with you.  Though, they are kind of a big deal, so maybe you already know how fabulous they truly are already.  Here are some of their other fun renditions of the classics, that certainly are absolutely fabulous…

Hydrangeas.  One of my absolute favorite flowers.  I cannot wait for mine to bloom this year at my house.

Such a stunning loose bun.  I love it and need to master this for mornings I am running late for the office.

There is something so beautiful about this photo.  The girl is stunning, but that is not all.  The look in her eyes draw you in and then the soft look on her whole face allows for the red to pop perfectly on her lips.  Love this lovely.

love2

This drawing is amazing.  I love all that it communicates all through a pencil sketch.  A girl filled with so much emotion and words that are right there on the surface, but still stuck inside of you…

love3

Seriously, this is the perfect warm winter day ensemble.  I adore the hat – the big brim to help block the wind.  Then, add the big shawl – divine.

love5

 

I have been obsessing over figs as of late and so naturally this salad grabbed my attention right away.  It looks delectable.

How cute are these little booties?!!  I seriously feel like I need these for spring.  I just die.

What are you dying to gets your little paws on for spring?  Do you impulse buy or try to take time to think about the purchase first?

Much love,

Let loose and dance in the street – while wearing stripes.  In love.  Yes, please – let’s go.

A fun accent chair I am adoring right now – I would love to have this in my new living room.

 

I love my Great Aunt Jeanie.  She is simply beautiful – both inside and outside and I want to look like here when I am 82.

 

I have been searching for a fun print to hang in my kitchen – and this is one of my current favs.  I am loving looking for pieces to stylize my house and make it a home.

 

Having time to myself to relax and read – seriously one of my favorite things in the whole world.  Such a simple little treat.

What are some of the little pleasures in life that bring you great joy?

Beautiful Wood…

 

Designers find inspiration in all sorts of places.  For Sophie Monet, that inspiration started in her father’s wood shop a few years back and has transformed into a stunning company that brings art, nature and beauty all together in one piece of jewelry.  Here Sophie shares a little more on her inspiration and design, “My jewelry is a synthesis of my life.  The wood represents Los Angeles and what I was surrounded by growing up.  Whether it be palm trees that line the streets from Venice to Santa Monica or my close family bonds, and the wood shop I spent my childhood in.  The gol and stone represent my entry into independence in New York.  The urban mountains continue to be a source of my inspiration, shaping the growth of my knowledge.  I synthesize and sculpt the materials that surround me, bringing natural elements into different contexts.”

 

 

 

Where do you draw inspiration from?  Would wood jewelry fit in with your style? I am totally in love with the wood pony tail piece.

Much love,

Happy Places Collide…

This weekend in Minneapolis is the Uptown Art Fair.  I absolutely love this art fair.  It brings out some of the greatest people – seriously, you are bound to laugh a time or two, as well as meet some very interesting people.  The art fair always happens right outside the steps of my yoga studio.  So, why not bring the yoga outside and let the two collide a bit?!  We will be having some free classes going on, as well as yoga demos if you will.  I am so excited – a weekend full of art, beauty, fashion, and yoga?!!  All in lovely Minneapolis?!!  Why, yes – that is exactly where I will be – in the middle of some of my happy places colliding.  I certainly will be a #happygirl all weekend long!

Do you have any art fairs in your city?  What are some of your favorite places?  Do they ever overlap?

Much love,

Life is a canvas, so we shall paint and create beauty.  I love what this image captures.  And, it totally has me wanting to put my toe shoes on and dance around.

 

Loving having a new book to read and get lost in, especially since it is a memoir – my personal favorite.

 

Getting to have time to hang out with one of my best friends and laugh as we catch up on life – that is one of my favorite things in the whole world.

 

I love this DIY bar cart.  The fun retro feel revamped gives it a chic look for any home.

 

This image so beautifully captures simplicity and peacefulness.  Trusting right where she is.  There is a contentment she has as she walks away from something, but also to something.  I love it.

What are some of the simple joys you are loving about life these days?

Much love,

A Memorial Event…

Happy Memorial Day, loves!  For those of you that get the day off, I hope you are enjoying the long weekend and kick-off to summer.  I know I sure am!  There is something about holidays like this that make me crave a good movie – and lets just say I cannot get enough of The Great Gatsby trailer.  It looks like it is going to be amazing – from the cinematography to the cast to director to the storyline itself – it is going to be an amazing work of art.  It comes out on Christmas Day, and I certainly will be there.  Alright, I am off to keep enjoying frolicking and not having a care in the world…

What are you doing to kick off summer?

Much love,

B
