    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 coat or Grey Wolf SpiritHood whenever you want to snuggle. And if you really want to elevate your crib to first-rate style, try our ultra luxurious TISSAVEL throws and robes. These will definitely transform your space into top-notch living, leaving you and all your guests relishing in opulence. We warn you though, you may experience difficulty in getting them to leave. Once they wrap themselves in one of these faux furs, life as they know it, will never be the same. Hello living in the lap of luxury! 

    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. And if you're a cuddle bear and like to snuggle up next to someone, there will be plenty of room for the two or three of you!

        A faux fur throw is smaller. They’re easy to take camping and out for your extreme adventures. Or throw one in your bag on a night out to the movies or a date outdoors, they are the perfect size and weight to take anywhere. 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 animal faced 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. Faux fur is engaging in any space. People are tactile and once they see something soft and appealing like faux fur, they are going to want to enter and touch it. 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

        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.

        Offer some lavish comfort for you guests

        If you're the kind of hostess with the mostest, offer a pair of slippers for your guest to wear around your house. Go ahead and get creative, put a basket or wooden box by your front door and a cute welcome doormat (like this one). Now add several pairs of our faux fur slipper booties in different sizes and let them choose. They'll appreciate the warm gesture and your floors will appreciate the lack of dirty shoes in the house. 

        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 offer luxurious pet beds. Why should you be the only one that gets to experience the joys of superb cuddly softness? Your favorite four legged friend deserves just the same.

        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 
        • listen to podcasts
        • watch movies

        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!
