Animal Instincts

Animal Instincts

One way to add personality and whimsy to a room is to incorporate animals! In years past we saw a lot of owls and foxes but this year elephants and fish are popping up in designs everywhere! Using animals in your interior design can help define the overall feel of the space. With elephants and giraffes, you can bring an African chic feel to a room. Antlers and animal heads can go from modern ethnic to western rustic.

It is amazing how a grouping of several faux heads can add a dramatic gallery like feel to a wall! These resin or metal animal heads are modern and stylish.
