Modernize & Loving Faux Fur

I have been loving faux fur details for home decor and especially faux fur blankets. They are perfect to spice up any space, especially bedrooms and living rooms.

I have collaborated with Modernize which is a super nice website that provides solution for home renovation, decor and DIY. Here is their view on faux fur blankets that I completely agree with! Hope you enjoy.

Trend Alert: Faux Fur Blankets

Written by Jane Blanchard
Winter is here, and the perfect home accessory this season is a faux fur blanket! Fur has always
been a classic look that represents warmth and brings a sense of luxury to any room. It’s a fast
growing trend in both the high fashion runway and home decorating. Whether you are updating a vintage living room, or finding a winterizing accent for an ultra contemporary bedroom, or even adding that extra touch of coziness to your shabby chic reading nook, fur has something for everyone.

One of the biggest benefits to fur is that it comes in so many colors, all in natural tones that complement any color scheme! Faux fur can be solid or imitate the natural fur patterns of your favorite animals. With all the available options, it’s not hard at all to find the look to match your already existing pieces.

Take variety to the next step with a range in lengths! Do you want a short and fuzzy feel? Thick and luxe? What about cozy and shaggy for the perfect shabby chic feel? Faux fur can be found in many styles, giving you a ton of options to express yourself.

One of the easiest ways to incorporate your faux fur blanket into your living room is to drape it. Like pictured above it brings texture to any furniture piece. It’s absolutely perfect for curling up with a book and mug of hot chocolate in front of a fireplace. When the snow falls, you’ll know that you’re nice and cozy with your blanket.

The most obvious place to put a blanket is in a bedroom. Never fear, faux fur can still be unique! It’ll be a nice break from everyday flannels and quilts and bring a glamorous feel to any bed set. Faux fur is also for the romantic, bringing a soft feel that sets the perfect mood for a nice long cuddle session. Whether you are using the blanket as an accent or covering your entire bed, fur will keep you super cozy at night.
Tip: Pair it with a cozy knit blanket for added texture.

So what happens when the winter season is over? Faux fur blankets will still look fabulous outside. It’ll ward out the cold on those breezy spring days where you want to bask in sunshine even though the temperature might not be ideal. Fur can add some fun to the smooth and sleek textures typically found in outdoor furniture. When the weather gets warmer, you can move your favorite setup right outside to your porch and enjoy the fresh scents of spring!

Bonjour à tous! J’espère que vous avez tous passé une excellente soirée d’Halloween et que vous êtes d’attaque pour le mois de Novembre! De mon côté je n’ai rien fais de spécial mais j’ai profité d’une bonne soirée au calme car j’en avais bien besoin. Si vous avez fêté Halloween cette année, dites moi quel à été votre déguisement, j’adorerai savoir!
En attendant, n’oubliez pas que vous pouvez me suivre sur Instagram  @preppyandfunny où je partage des petits moments de ma vie quotidienne qui n’apparaissent pas forcément sur le blog.
En espérant vous y voir!

Olá a todos! Espero que tenham passado uma excelente noite de Halloween e que estão todos preparados para o mês de Novembro! Pessoalmente não fiz grande coisa, fiquei por casa a descansar o que até foi melhor visto que tenho andado muito cansada. Se festejaram o dia das bruxas, digam-me como foram disfarçados – adoraria saber!
Entretanto, não se esqueçam que me podem seguir pelo Instagram @preppyandfunny onde partilho alguns momentos da minha vida de todos os dias que podem não aparecer no blogue.
Espero ver-vos por lá em breve!

#SMART –> Whistles

As you figured, P&F is mostly a sharing spot. I love browsing through clothing and decor shops, streets, restaurants, magazines and blogs.

I wanted to share some of the nicest branding/marketing ideas I have been seeing all over the web during the last week. Some brands have beautiful ideas and are really inspiring. Today I decided to share one part of the Whistles website.

It has this “Inspiration” tab that is very VERY nice. Over there you can find some collabs with artists and other models, some ideas on ways to wear their clothes, and mostly you have the “neighbourhoods”. The latter is the best to me. Basically they take you to the neighbourhood of their stores (mainly in Britain but also internationally) . Examples: Whistles in Notting Hill, Cambridge, Berlin, NYC, etc.

It is genius marketing and branding for Whistles and their partners, but also, reading these small posts offer a beautiful moment to the reader that gets to see amazing pictures and also learn a little bit more about these cities and companies that are featured. Those reader who will likely become consumer-to-be 😉

If I may – Well done Whistles.

Hope you enjoy it!

Monikh’s Little Treasures

MONIKH

EN

I discovered Monikh through Estée from Essie Button (love love love her). Monikh is a personnal shopper at Top Shop and has amazing style that she features in her fashion blog. Her blog is very nice but what I personally prefer is her instagram account where she shows little moments of her everyday life (and of course some outfits) but also wonderful quotes that all have the same typo and give so much harmony to her page. I wanted to share some of them that are particularly inspiring to me. I might print and frame them! Hope you like them. 🙂

FR

J’ai découvert Monikh à traver le blog d’Estée, Essie Button (que j’a-dore!). Monikh est une personnal shopper pour Top Shop qui a un incroyable style qu’elle partage dans son blog mode. Ce dernier est vraiment sympa mais j’ai personnellement un petit penchant pour son compte instagram où on peut apercevoir des petits bouts de sa vie de tous les jours avec évidemment ses tenues mais aussi de fabuleuses citations à la typo constante qui donnent une forte harmonie à sa page. Je voulais partager avec vous mes citations préférées que je vais surement imprimer et encadrer dans ma chambre! J’espère que vous les aimerez autant que moi. 🙂

Descobri a Monikh através do blog da EstéeEssie Button (que adoro adoro!). Monikh é uma personnal shopper para a loja Top Shop com um estilo incrível que partilha no seu blog de moda. Gosto muito do blog mas tenho uma certa preferência pela sua pagina do instagram onde partilha o sei dia a dia o que inclui nomeadamente os seus outfits mas também muitas citações que ela partilha sempre com a mesma tipografia o que da muita harmonia a sua pagina. Decidi partilhar aquelas que mais me têm inspirado ultimamente e que estou muito seriamente a pensar imprimir e colocar em molduras para o meu quarto! Espero que gostem tanto como eu. 🙂
