faux fur...in summer?


Are you a fan of these popular faux fur pillows?
I love the texture, color, cozy vibe, bit of glam and they can work almost anywhere.
BUT, as much as I want to make one to include in my decor... 
they look too hot for summer!
Is it just me, what do you think?

Anyone else notice that gorgeous stump?  I may steal the one from Detail Boy's room!

In white they work year round! Definitely.
And I love that stump too! Might have to find me a tree to play with!

I think the faux fur is a great unexpected piece...but I am loving that stump...I remember way back when...when cypress stumps were all the rage in Florida...My dad made an accent table from a cypress stump with a "slice" of a stump for the top...hmmm, I wonder if my mom still has it?..

Love the Flokati pillows! I just used then in my last staging (this Summer) and they looked great! Target has them for about $25 and everyone else wants $60 or more so Target is the place to go for them.

I like them year-round, as long as I'm not snugglin' up next to them in the summer.

I love these white furry pillows. They feel more summery and year 'round than the darker fur ones, I think.
Good luck with your stump :)

The stump is my kind of texture, but the furry pillow is not my bag. I always think they look cute in rooms when I see them (especially in the examples you show here) but it's not for me. I'm not a furry kind of girl, BUT I have been enlightened to leopard - I think I could do a hit of leopard somewhere, maybe. Maybe. :)

I think they are such a fun touch to a room. I see it more in the fall and winter, but I guess it can work during the summer as well. I love the same kind of fur on a little stool as well! A DIY of that would be fun :)

oh, i love a good mongolian lamb pillow no matter the season. especially a white one. now i do agree that the fur throws have no place in a room during summer :)

The furry pillows look light and airy, but I would not lean on them if given the option - in the summer. Loving that stump!

I'm not a fan of the furry pillows. Maybe other people are but I'm not a cat fan and I hate feathers, so the idea of putting my head on that kind of pillow kind of freaks me out. Hey, I'm old and I have a lot of opinions I never had in my 30's. Actually, they are kind of a recyled fad we had in the 60's and I hated them then.

I had a couple in black and then I traded them out for tapestry. I think the white are a more versatile color.

The stump is perfect! I love how it makes the room feel more organic. The leaf lamp is pretty cool, too!

That stump is great and I think the pillows are so chic & glam anytime, including summer!

I love the addition of a fur pillow to a room and that stump is awesome. My mum did something like that in my brothers room when we were younger. xo

Fall and winter are coming! The pillows look super cozy!

That first bedroom is so gorgeous! I think faux fur accents can definitely work in summer as long as you stay with lightly colored fur like in these photos!

I'm a fan anytime!
