I love decorating with items found in nature. So, it only makes sense that I would also decorate with those that live among it!
One of my favorite pieces in my home is this cow picture that my sister gave me. She has them hung in her kitchen and now I do too! Call me a copycat, I don't care. Ha!
I love how rustic it looks and adds a farmhouse feeling to my kitchen. Doesn't every farmhouse have a cow nearby?
I have alot of animal prints in my home as well. I like the graphic quality of their design. The zebra pattern adds a slight modern touch. I like modern in small doses.
Two of these are in my kitchen.
I also have a touch of zebra in my dining room.
Next up are leopard prints. I have quite a bit, but they're scattered throughout so it doesn't feel like too much!
In my foyer, two large leopard print pillows sit on the bench.
Notice the antlers on the wall beside the bench? Oh yeah, love those too.
I also love pictures of dogs. I only have one and it is prominently displayed in the foyer next to the front door.
At the top of my stairs you are greeted by a couple of rooster pictures. I used to have roosters EVERYWHERE. I have scaled back and now only have a few. I guess I had to make room for all the other animals, didn't I?
In my master bedroom, I have a leopard foot stool in front of a chest of drawers.
And I wouldn't want the other side of my bed to feel left out, so I have a dog statue filled with feathers and a real bull horn on the side table.
You'll notice that I have no problem mixing all these animal "parts" with feminine elements either. It somehow all works together.
Back in the family room, I have pheasant feathers in an urn and antlers stacked on books.
What's nice about decorating with these items is that they fit right in with the Fall season. All I need to do is add a little Fall color and that's it!
And before I go, it goes without saying, that my FAVORITE animal in my house is this sweet guy!
He watches over our house when we're gone and thinks he's protecting us all! Here he is lying on the stair landing (so he can see the front door). So far, he hasn't tried to attack any of the animal "parts" I have sprinkled thoughout the house. That's a relief!
