Style Stakes: Sheepskin Rugs

If there is one thing I’ve learnt about rugging up for the cooler months, it’s the more texture the better. While spring and summer are all about colour, autumn & winter are all about layers. So it’s no surprise that over the past few months I’ve been noticing a gradual surge in sheepskin (or lambskin) rugs being used a decorator items  in American and European homes during their cooler months. Being so soft and fluffy they are an excellent accent for winter to create that warm, cosy feeling – while still adding some serious style. Below are a few ways you can uses these deliciously, warm decorator items that will make will  have you all snuggled up for the rest of autumn and winter…

1. Make cold winter mornings a little warmer and softer under foot by adding a plush sheepskin for your toes to land on…

Style Stakes: French Beaded Chandeliers

You may or may not have noticed but there has been a sudden surge of French beaded chandeliers appearing in stores, magazines and high end homes. This latest style in pendant lighting is hitting my instagram feed pretty hard right now and I have not one single complaint about it. These pieces mean serious business in the style stakes and I think they are absolutely gorgeous. If you have high ceilings and want to add a little (or a lot of) wow factor or you have a great space outdoors, they are definitely worth some consideration. Ranging in price from around $600 and up, they are not the best budget-friendly option, but on a dollar for impact scale they are pretty darn reasonable! Also lots of DIY tutorials are already popping up here, there and everywhere – so if you like the idea I imagine this would be an extremely rewarding project. For a little inspiration, take a look below at some of my favourite looks for these chandeliers below..
