Just a small antler obsession...








 MintSix antlers at my place!

Antlers are continuing to feature in stylish homes around the globe. Commonly found in rustic lodges and also at home within the Scandinavian aesthetic,  antlers have more recently popped up in a variety of interior spaces. Coupled with earthy tones or a more eclectic, vibrant interior, antlers can really add a unique talking point in your home.
MintSix Antlers and striped wallpaper. Great combo :)
If the entire head is too much for your taste, try styling your space with just the antlers, by  grouping them on a shelf or on your mantelpiece. Mount them on the wall or decorate your table as part of a vignette as a centrepiece. Another option for that disused fireplace is to stack a few of them in a casual heap!

Great for an empty fireplace



Adore this. Next project for me is to hang an antler from the roof.
Plenty of fake alternatives around if the real thing isn't for you. Pictures from Urban Outfitters,  Faux Taxidermy & via Pinterest
