Is it me, or is anything with an antler trendy as heck right now?!
I’ve personally never been into anything that came from a carcass, but between my new obsession with anything faux fur, and my growing desire to purchase something with antlers to put on the wall, I am getting slightly worried!
I’ve been seeing photos of mounted antlers and animal heads (both real and fake) making a statement everywhere from Target, to ZGallerie, to Urban Outfitters to the pages of House Beautiful, and while I never thought I’d say this… I really want one too!
How awesome is that white lacquer deer head mounted on those rich dark walls??
I also love this rustic grouping above that FABULOUS console (look at those gorgeous turned legs!!) I have to say, Restoration Hardware definitely has a “look” – right?? I could tell this image (sourced through Pinterest) originally came from the Restoration Fall Catalog.
While this look has turned into a bit of an obsession for me, I draw the line at anything taxidermied. My uncle is an avid hunter, and all the moose and elk heads always freaked me out as a child…
I am pretty sure that the mounted (fake) deer heads could very easily become one of those “what the hell was I thinking” moments… also, Kris will likely think I’ve lost my mind if I even try to bring one of these guys home, but I still secretly love this trend.
