{HOMEgirl} oh deer, oh dear

Can you believe the antler, taxidermy, deer trend going on in design right now?

I cannot believe it. It cracks me up because growing up we had a large stuffed deer on our living room wall that freaked out all of my friends. It was so far from being a trend that it was almost the opposite {being that it was offensive to some people}. My dad loved hunting and having that deer displayed in our home was just one of those things that my mom didn’t always love, but embraced. She would always say that she had to let my dad have some things around our home that were meaningful to him {even if it wasn’t something she would necessarily choose}. While I thought it was normal for our family, I felt a little funny about it because it was so weird to everyone else. Now that this trend has come to life in so many homes I’m shocked and ironically happy! I will be embracing this in our sweet “home on the range” nursery {check it out HERE}. I will most likely be using a deer, antelope or some antlers from my dad and/or brothers collection of hunting trophies. We will see. In the meantime check out some of these awesome trends on pinterest that I pinned below {more can be found HERE}.

Look at THIS adorable and rustic nursery below! I love the variety of antlers!

I cannot get enough of the natural artwork from vol25 and especially THIS one pictured below!

THESE faux antlers & faux taxidermy below, from mahzerandvee, are great {especially if you cannot stand the idea of real animals hanging out in your home}!

il_570xN.489780600_5t5lThis “paint-by-numbers” take on antlers {found HERE} is so unique that I love it as well!

THIS buffalo makes me smile, THIS is classic look is perfect for any home, and THIS light fixture look from the Shabby Antler never gets old to me {I’m just not sure if it would work for a small room and nursery}.

I’m very excited to have a deer for my sweet dear!

More on wall color, art & lighting coming soon!

What do you think of the trend?
