I have a thing for antlers right now. Not the ones on taxidermied deer heads mounted above the fireplace in a lodge or rustic cabin. I’m liking the ones that you find in the most unexpected spaces, such as an antler chandelier in a modern dining room or a skull and antlers above a bed in a romantic bedroom.
With many faux versions available, they won’t tug at your heartstrings or stir a guilty conscience. For those that like the real deal, you’ll find those as well. Whichever you choose, they are quite versatile much like cowhide rugs which seem to find their home in a number of stylish rooms.
I’ve collected a number of interior design images featuring these little beauties in a number of different decors. Be sure to comment below and tell me what you think about using them in your own home.

Loving this antler mirror frame! It provides a stunning focal point for the room and coordinates with the other animal skins in the space.

Ok, so I’m ignoring the deer mounted on the wall and concentrating on the white antler chandelier which is quite beautiful in this modern dining room.
