Simplicity meets eclectic in this intriguing living space that incorporates many natural elements from the animal kingdom. Decorating with these elements can be tricky, but if done tactfully it can make for an interestingly styled space that captures the attention of all your guests. Hung antlers, antique or vintage, real or faux (try the wood ones for an animal friendly version) are all the rage this year. Hung above a fireplace mantle in a more contemporary home lends a great look to white walls and wood floors. Domes or cloches with specimens or objects of curiosity underneath add to the allure of the room, while a hide rug warms the space and adds a beautiful look to the theme. Make sure to include any old animal bones mounted skulls, etc.... as accessories, along with any animal inspired ceramic or trinkets. Finish with a faux fur pillow and throw to bring the look together.
