Adding warmth and texture with Icelandic sheepskin

June 13, 2015

Scandinavian style is well known for its simple and minimal yet warm and cozy feeling what is created by using different natural materials and textures. If you are a regular reader here you know how much I love Scandinavian interiors and that my own home is also decorated keeping Nordic style in mind. However, sometimes I feel that our home is little bit too minimalist and I have started to think about different ways of how to add more coziness and warmth to it. I’ve always admired beautiful long-haired sheepskins in different Scandi-style interiors and how they make monochrome and minimal interiors instantly cozier and welcoming. So I finally decided that it was about the time to get one for our home too. I was really happy when I found Furbazaar webshop with really good selection of different sheepskins.

Furbazaar is a Danish webshop offering skin and fur products for both interior decorating and fashion. The selection of interior products is really wide – from cow hides and various sheepskins to seat covers and cushions. And what made me smile was the free international shipping they offer! When talking about skins and fur, animal welfare is always a question for me and I was happy to find out that Furbazaar exclusively has products from certified suppliers who are subjects to strict regulations and requirements. So you can be sure that whatever you buy from them it’s coming from sustainable resources.

As there are many gorgeous sheepskins in variety of tones and sizes I had to thought long before choosing which one to take. Finally I decided to go for natural grey long wool Icelandic sheepskin – with white walls and white sofa in the living room I thought that something little bit darker would add more interest to the room. It’s 100% natural, undyed and organic and feels really gorgeous!

My new Icelandic sheepskin has found a perfect spot on our sofa, I think it adds the much needed coziness, texture and a little bit darker tones to the living room.

It looks rather gorgeous also in our bedroom, so when not on the sofa I use it there.

    That throw is just gorgeous; and your home is beautiful!


    Väga kena interjöör ja milline lopsakas orhidee. Soovitan talle panna pikemad toepulgad. Ise sätin enda orhidee tuge õitsemisperioodil mitu korda, kuna õisi tuleb juurde ja raskuskese muutub.

      Aitäh! :)
      Orhidee toestus on tõepoolest mul unarusse jäänud ja ta vaeseke õite all suhteliselt upakil. Tegelen sellega kindlasti :)

    I ‘m in the same mood as you, I try to make my apartment more cozy.
    I replaced the black to gray.

    have a nice day!

      Thank you dear Bianca!
      Usually I got that cozy-mood around autumn, but this time it has hit me at the beginning of summer, strange.

    That we’ll designed interior is dreamy place to live in. I always admire minimalistic style. Can’t stop watching pictures, they’ve great.
    I could imagine buubok’s crochet lamp LUUNA in such interior.
    Thanks for inspiring me.

    Hey, I love your style, and this bedroom is absolutely beautiful! I am just curious if you can help me edit pictures, the way you do. I usually use Instagram filters but I can never achieve the same look. Do you mind giving me some tips and pointer to creating pictures similar to yours.

    Thanks in advance,

      Hi Lisa, thank you so much for your kind words, happy you like my home and my photos. I think they are far from perfect editing wise, I’d like to learn use Photoshop one day and improve my editing skills… Right now I edit my photos using Lightroom, usually I correct white balance, increase whites and decrease vibrance to achieve the look. I do same with my Instagram photos :)
      Hope it helped a little bit.

        I really appreciate your help, I have been trying to create a similar effect, however I was struggling. I will try out your techniques on my images myself. I suppose having a monochromatic colour scheme in your picture helps keep your pictures in unison. They are stunning!! :)
