Chic or Shit - Animal Sculls and Antlers

I know many of you have loved this series, and I have to admit, so have I! It's had a long break, but now it's back. And hopefully on a more regular basis :)

This time, we're talking skulls and antlers. Do you love 'em? Loathe them? Are they sculptural and beautiful or just dead animals to you?

Do you think they belong in a chic city apartment or in on a mountain cottage?

Antlers and sculls - CHIC or SHIT?

I had a friend when I was a child, whose father was very much into hunting - they had hundreds of these all the way up their staircase. Used to freak me out completely - so it's a no from me!

I am so antlered out, there has to be other chic to be found somewhere. Who came up with it in the first place i wonder?

Mrs Conti @ Belvivere said...

sorry for those who love them: it's SHIT!!

Karen said...

I do sort of like the naturalness of the look - but as a vegetarian I think I would have a hard time having antlers and skulls in my home!!

antlers that fall naturally are chic as well as faux taxidermy - I know that some feel that is a little overdone but I think it adds a bit of whimsy to the room.

Real taxidermy is gross - but it covers the walls of half of my extended family.

Feel strongly about this one, hate it and very tired of seeing it.

VictoriaArt said...

I am not per se against this, but unfortunately many design trends become obsessive and that makes me turn against them. Where it belongs I can accept it, often I don't mind a little whimsy and fun, but it is so mainstream now, that I tire of it.
One should be true to one self, follow your heart, your interests, lifestyle, then is almost unimportant what you put into your place. It will always be original and convincing. Truly interesting spaces will always be a little different and unexpected. That is the fascination. Cookie cutter trendy places are absolutely boring!!!

I like it a lot...and have many :)

Sea of Design said...

I like it to and i think its chic! :) I have one antler whith lights on. It brings the little extra to our apartement. :)


Lumo said...

I don't like hunting, but if antlers have fallen and are found in nature, it's ok to hang them on the wall.

Laila said...

I think they are beautiful, like many things in nature they facinate me! BUT they also remind me of death. I can't decide if they are chic or shit, I think it depends on where they are. What I can say, I think they are so IN, that they are on their way out very soon. Next year hunters will have them back to themselves...

Carissa @ the Fabulous Design File said...

Ick. I think they are scary.

Aliza said...

Sooo over done & really just cruel looking. I'm not an animal rights person & I believe in eating meat etc. but this seems pretty useless and really creepy.

Danielle said...

I agree with Lumo...in the summer I often go to a friends log cabin and we find treasures, these I love to bring back and display. They capture a mood, memory and connection to nature for me. I currently have the entire back bone of a deer..it needs some bleaching then like a puzzle my son and I plan to put it together. Where am I going to display this...I have no idea!! And so happy that the chic or shit series is back...it always gives me a good chuckle! xx Danielle

Good question, to be honest I think its a little bit weird! The antlers is not that bad but the skull. Why put a skull on the wall?

nullfiresyvni said...

I think it's kinda cool, but now everybodys got em and I'm a bit tired of seeing these elements everywhere.

Avdelingen said...

It's a very clear no, no! I find it rather disgusting actually.

Hellohello baby said...

I like it, but I think it is very hard to pull it off. I dont like any of the photos above. They are all shit.

But Irina from All of Irina, she pulled it of completly!

Ludmila @ creamylife said...

I'm confused how I feel about them :). on one hand I find them very stylish, but on another hand, it's a little creepy.

Garden Forum said...

Its a "shit"...
Imagine how many animals are in danger now...
Be considerate cos they maintain the balance of our ecosystem.

Anonymous said...

Sorry, SHIT. I have friends who have real ones and molded ones...all the same shit. WHY would you hang these? Maybe if you actually SHOT the animals, but that is even more gross.
