When visiting friends, you love to stroke their faux fur home décor just as much as their real fur pets. Perhaps every time you find yourself in a store, you make a beeline for the pillows and animal print throws, then spend the next 20 minutes feeling up all the soft furry stuff. Or maybe you spend countless hours dreaming of decorating with animal print home décor and filling your online shopping carts with all the plush goodness you drool over.

How Can You Use SpiritHoods as Art for Your Home?

Spicing up your space with faux fur home décor can be as simple as utilizing the fab faux fur and animal print throws you already have! Is your collection of SpiritHoods and shawls tucked away in a closet? Well, it’s time to bust them out! Why keep your favorite pieces hidden away?

Instead, put them on display in your home. It’s a practical and stylish way to show off your collection of animal print throws and robes while adding a touch of faux fur home décor to any room. Think about it - they add color and texture to your space, providing warmth and eye candy! And you’ll be able to grab your Grey Wolf or Snow Leopard SpiritHood whenever you want to snuggle.

Decorate Your Walls with Animal Print Faux Fur

Think your favorite SpiritHood might go great on that wall over there? Try this: 

  1. Choose a convenient spot on the wall. Hint: In your bedroom or near an entryway makes it easy to grab your SpiritHood on your way out the door.
  2. Determine the best way to hang your SpiritHood. Removable sticky hooks will be your best friend if you're in a dorm or renting. However, if you'd like a little DIY challenge and have access to a drill — you can buy some attractive hooks at a hardware or home goods store.
  3. Before drilling or sticking anything to your wall — create a plan! This is the key to making it look awesome. First, measure the space you'll need to hang your hoods, then map it out.
  4. Once you’ve got the look locked down, grab a pencil and a measuring tape. Make light marks on the wall indicating where your hooks should be placed.
  5. Get to sticking or drilling.
  6. Now for the fun part! Arrange your hoods! You can display them by color, shape, species — whatever speaks to your inner animal spirit!

      What's the Difference Between Blankets and Throws?

      In a nutshell, blankets are larger than throws.SpiritHoods blankets are about the same size as a king bed. Yep, extra cuddle points! You can wrap yourself in one and not have your chilly toes sticking out.

      A faux fur throw is smaller. They’re easy to take camping and out for your extreme adventures. Keep in mind, since they're shorter, you probably won't be able to wrap your whole body in one of our animal print throws — but you will be able to wear it around yourself like a cape, thanks to our custom buttons!

      Faux fur throws used to decorate your living space

      Decorating with our animal inspired faux fur throws is an excellent idea for your living space. Try draping an animal print throw over the corner of your couch or toss it on your favorite armchair. They're fantastic cuddle buddies for binge-watching that new Netflix series. Since they're smaller, our faux fur throws can be more versatile than blankets. In addition, you don't have to worry that a throw will look too bulky in a small space.

      Decorating With Faux Fur Pillows & Rugs

      Did you know SpiritHoods has faux fur rugs? Yep, our faux fur home décor line has it all! The Arctic Wolf Faux Fur SpiritHoods Rug is made from luxurious TISSAVEL+ faux fur. It’s soft, durable, and oh-so plush. We love the way it looks laid across a wood floor. But, of course, you can also layer it on a carpet for that plush, Boho look.

      A furry pillow can add a pop of personality to any room. Decorating with pillows paired with our faux fur throws works in bedrooms, office spaces, and living rooms, too. You can even bring faux fur home décor into your kitchen and use one as a chair cushion. Don’t be afraid to mix and match colors and types of animal print home décor. The more texture and color you add to your space, the richer it will feel.

      Adding Faux Fur for Your Pets to Enjoy

      It's time to get real. Before you invest in a cozy faux fur throw or pillow, you need to know the truth: your pet is going to steal it. Period. So to help keep the peace between you and your lovable fur ball, we’ve bitten the bullet and are finally launching our luxurious pet beds this year! (Arrives March 2022)

      Much like you, your furry best friend appreciates quality. And pets love SpiritHoods. It’s a classic combination, kinda like peanut butter and jelly. So, just be prepared to share your new faux fur throw with everyone in your home. We just thought we should warn you!

      The good news is, if you're also looking for extra cuddles from your four-legged pals, adding a touch of faux fur home décor can get you two paws up, fur sure!

      Helpful hint: when you’re adding a faux fur home décor, like a pillow or faux fur throw to your home, think about what will work best with your animal's coat. If you've got a black dog who sheds, a darker color faux fur blanket, like the Nicobar Pigeon Collector Edition Faux Fur Throw will reveal less of your pup’s hair. Less daily clean-up. You're welcome.

      Advanced Faux Fur Home Decor: The Cuddle Puddle

      It's time to level up your inner interior decorator. So here's a recipe for the ultimate faux fur home décor masterpiece. The Cuddle Puddle!

      Your very own cuddle puddle is the perfect place to:

      • snuggle up
      • read a book
      • enjoy some hang time with your besties
      • take a long nap 

      Start with a nice soft base. Any cozy carpet or rug will do. Next, grab some big pillows or an ottoman to use as a foundation to lean against. Now it's time to go wild by decorating with some animal print home décor. A few pillows and a blanket or throw will make things nice and inviting while adding your stylish touch.

      Bonus points: Hang your SpiritHoods around your cuddle puddle area.

      Extra double bonus points: Build a fort, then make a cuddle puddle nest inside. Say goodbye to the world because (let’s be honest) you’re never coming out again!

Either way, we wanna see it! Snap a pic of those faux fur throws and amazing spaces, then tag #SpiritHoods on Instagram. We’ll even feature some of our favorites.
