Winter Home Decor Trends: Decorating With Antlers

Decorating With Antlers

Now, generally I don’t condone hunting animals of any kind nor do I eat meat or wear animal products (except in my shoes, belts, and bags).

However, with the imminent death of summer lurking around the corner, I can’t help but fear the winter that is to come. Let me tell you, I do not miss schlepping through frigid temps and mounds of sneet (a mixture of snow and sleet).

With the invasion of Jack Frost in a couple of months, I thought I would share with you one of my favorite winter trends for home decor, ANTLERS.

There is something magically vintage about antlers. Like I said, don’t go all Oregon Trail and take to the woods with the rifle. Please leave Bambi alone. The alternative is faux antlers, which no one will tell the difference and will  make you look more like a humane civil human being.

Antlers are a great way to add a little ambiance to your den or dining room. They make a serious statement and draw major focus to the walls. Pair these guys with a great wall color, dark-stained side board, fierce mantelpiece, or an oak dining set, and you’ve got it made.

These little guys come in an array of styles that aren’t just for wall mounting. These days one can see Antlers in lighting design, accent votives, and various tchotchke.
