Antlers…every style can use them!!

SO…I am getting VERY excited…because one of my favorite seasons of the year is coming up…HUNTING season!!! YES…I like to hunt 😉 And I now have connect my favorite season to my JOB?!?! I am seeing antlers EVERYWHERE!!! Now when this trend first started…I thought…it would be fairly short lived. I may have been wrong though…they are still around and I am seeing them used in ALL kinds of ways!! Three years ago when I moved into a condo with Bobo I asked my grandfather if he would give me some of his antlers…to go along with mine…and of course, he said yes! So I took them and spray painted them white…and they have now moved from his condo…to MINE!!!

Antlers
My Papa Ed had a lot more requests for his antlers after I put them up 🙂 I really love white antlers paired with cream walls because it gives the space an interesting, funky touch while still creating a calm, simple look.

I also have a few other white antlers I really love…

Kassler Antlers for Ballard
You can get these from Ballard Designs. They are part of Suzanne Kasler’s new line…go check it out…it is FANTABULOUS!!!

And of course I love the famously known ghost coat rack…

But antlers don’t only have to be white…they don’t even have to be real…they can be CARDBOARD!!

VERY cool!!! See below for application idea:

Mix of antlers
You can mix and match for a very bohemian style. I also think the dark wall really makes them stand out and creates a bold statement.

Here is another dark wall with the white antlers…

What a CLEAN look…with just a hint of TRENDY! **SIMPLE TIP: it is always safe to put bold prints or colors on smaller pieces or pillows!

But antlers are not only for adults…they are being shown in children’s areas too!

I just saw these vintage antler’s while flipping through the latest copy of Serena and Lily. They specialize in children’s bedding and furniture…

And here is another set of vintage antlers from an article in Elle Decor…

Wall art
I love the fact that they have made them part of the framed artwork. Combining different types of art and grouping them together creates great interest on your walls!

Speaking of art…you can not only group antlers with art…but the antlers can BE the art…

This silhouette painting on canvas gives great interest to this space!

Now here is something new that I REALLY love…

Antler print fabric
Antler FABRIC!!!! I just love it. This is a new fabric from Lee Jofa. It is GREAT looking…and I love that they paired it here with the animal print chair. SIDENOTE: I am also a big fan of the Visual Comfort Lamp on the floor…

And speaking of lighting…antlers can be found there too!

Now I know that there are some really BAD looking antler lighting out there…but the Adirondack Antler Chandelier from Restoration Hardware is well made and great looking!

And for those who like the idea…but can’t take the plunge to put antlers on your wall or hang them from your ceiling…here is something for you…
