Joining the Club: Sheepskin Rugs

Wednesday, December 4th, 2013

I find the simplest accessories bring great comfort and this time of year it’s all things furry and fuzzy. We have a small collection of faux fur blankets to drape over the beds or sofas for chilly nights. I do love my Mongolian lambswool pillow cover, and recently I succumbed to the lure of the sheepskin rug.

I originally bought it for the floor but it has made its way to the tufted sofa. This is the spot the kitty prefers now but I love just as much for catching up on magazines or a great read. Ubiquitous? Sure. But I couldn’t care less given how soft it is.

I absolutely love the feel of these rugs, I bought this one a few weeks ago and I’m thinking of one more for my bedroom, they add such a cozy and warm layer in winter.

So it’s official, I’ve joined the sheepskin rug club, raise your hand if you have one too! Where do you keep yours?

Oh the gallery wall, we love it so. It seems everyone’s got one these days including us. Last month I featured a group of Etsy artists and today I’m back for more in a new monthly series. Last time many of you suggested favorites in the comments, plus I discovered a few more myself. Enjoy the roundup, and I hope it inspires you to add something new to your collection!
