Got the horn… – part 1

Oooo-errr missus.  I feel like anyone directed to this post from google is going to be a smidgey disappointed, ha.

Ahem anyhoo…so with my obsessions for all things natural decor related, I guess it was only a matter of time until I started pondering the beauty that is horn.

I’m not talking about the big ol’ antlers-on-the-wall trend as, although I do think they’re cool, I also think they’ve been done to death.  As in, literally all the deer and gazelle in the world must now be dead so many people have incorporated a real [or faux] set of these puppies into their gallery walls.

But I wanted to take a little look today at some more subtle ways of incorporating this divine finish into interiors.  I am personally lusting after a couple of gorgeous horn bowls and a collection of bookends/coffee table styling pieces – but what about you?  Do let me know what you think!

    Hi Elly! I never considered it as a decor for home! Though have to say I will prefer something faux, I really like the effect and the mood it gives to the room! Nice interior you selected, my fav is put it in a coffee tabel! Have a great day, kisses! xo

  2. On my small vacation, I watched the first movie when the talent of Meryl Streep started to shine in the eyes of Hollywood, The Deer Hunter, an amazing war-friendship-courage and a little bit of love story and, of course, as the title says it, there were some hunting scene when Jack Nicholson kills a deer and I did not like it. So, I will go for the faux pieces and I think the most interesting decor is in the forth picture, it is so rustic and cozy, right?
    Why were you ill, Elly? In the pictures you look in very much shape, really!

  3. I’ve never been a fan of antlers on the wall, but I love the way that antlers have been {more subtly} incorporated into these decor schemes. The antlers in the fireplace is kind of adorbs! 🙂

    Hi Dearest Elly, thanks for your awesome comment about the Met dresses. I feel so bad for saying this, but the horns and antlers are really not for me (and I know I come from Africa). I think I see too many lovely bucks running around here everywhere, maybe thats why its a bit sad for me to view the horns on walls as on decor. Sorry for being honest 🙁

      No need to apologise Sam!! It’s good to have different viewpoints, makes the world a more interesting place. I do agree with you actually – a lot of people use faux horn instead of the real thing.

  5. I am native from Arkansas. My dad is an avid hunter. I personally am not a fan of antlers, especially when still attached to the head with the big accusing eyes leering, but this understated look is interesting. I love the antler bowls.I have a personal rule of thumb that I wont wear or use animal products of any kind from an animal I would not use as a food source. I think the Native Americans had the right idea when they used every part of an animal so its life (or loss thereof) was not wasted. Just my 2 cents.
