Cobalt (or royal) blue has to be one of my favorite colors, both in fashion and decorating settings. The rich tone works well year-round, and has a sophisticated yet fun feeling. I’m not sure I have the nerve to paint a whole room cobalt blue, yet I love the idea of incorporating the color into my life with clothing and smaller home accessories.

I love ‘em all! Happy hump day…

I’m all about the ongoing faux fur trend, yet I completely understand why many ladies lack the cojones to rock an over-the-top furry jacket or vest (one reason being their man-repelling nature). Enter the faux fur throw/pillow—the perfect solution to your cozy fur cravings! Faux fur accessories add a touch of warmth and sex appeal to any abode, and with a little digging, can be found for a reasonable price.

Since this is far from a new trend, various retailers have come out with faux fur accessories at budget-friendly price points. Here are a few:

  1. Suri Alpaca fur pillow, $450 (translation: a horrendous waste of money), VS.
  2. Woven Workz faux fur throw, $65
  3. Restoration Hardware luxe faux fur pillow covers, $24-29 (pictured in mink)
  4. Posh Pelts raccoon tail faux fur pillow cover, $24
  5. World Market faux mink fur toss pillow, $25
  6. Pottery Barn ombre faux-fur throw, $79
  7. Restoration Hardware luxe faux fur throws, $79 (pictured in mink, coyote & lynx from bottom to top}
  8. World Market chocolate faux fur throw, $60
