My home.......{the day I went all trendy}

While visiting a new antiques mall in Portland recently, I spied
a great antler mount for a really decent price.  I scooped them
up before I could really think what I wanted to do with them.

Seems antler mounts are all the rage these days - but for
me, it seemed the perfect winter accessory for above my fireplace.
{my family may, or may not, have other opinions}

I can't wait to dress it up with a wreath for Christmas - or maybe 
some pom pom garland!  I added a vintage frame for effect!

{don't even get me started on my granite tile surround - it's going
to be changed - SOON!}

So what do you think?  Taxidermy in design, a trend or here to stay?

  1. Love it all! The striped chair is awesome and inspired by the idea of the wall collage going all the way to the floorboards!!! Xoxo, tracie

  2. I think it's a classic trend. They have been in and out over the years. But I love mine and yours looks great! I like how you used the frame!

  3. It's not a look I love. I prefer to see them on the actual, live animals. I'm the same way about furs.

  4. I'm from Texas and they aren't a design trend. They are a forever dusty thing on the wall. The funny thing is that somehow you make it look great to me. :)

  5. I think if you like something you should use it... it doesn't matter if its "trendy" or not. :)
    Think it looks fantastic!

  6. Draped in a pom pom garland for Christmas would be darling. Where is your coffee tabled from? I've seen similar styles, but I like how yours has the lower shelf.

  7. We are from Texas, so taxidermy has always been in our home, my parents home, and my grandparents home. Hunting is a big deal around here- and many of us spend seasons as hunting widows ;) I do think it's a trend, especially for those who don't really hunt or display their trophy mounts.

  8. I love it! I have been obsessed lately with antlers. I have a huge wood bowl full of them on my coffee table.

  9. If you like it, then it doesn't matter if it is on trend or not. I could be convinced when it is dressed up for Christmas! It is beautifully executed and the proportions are spot on. I look forward to hearing about the change to the fireplace granite surround. It looks nice to me as is, so you much have a very interesting upgrade in mind.

  10. It's a classic, when you think
    about it....and I do think it's here
    to stay, if you love it! Love your
    new addition : )

  11. LOVE it too! I need an antler mount stat!
