Antler mania!

Hello there and happy Monday morning to you.  How was your weekend? Ours was very nice, a Friday night football game, some US Open tennis, dinner with great friends, and plenty of down time on Sunday to enjoy the most spectacular weather we have had in ages. Breezy, high 60's, bright doesn't get better than that! Fall is definitely on our doorstep and it has me thinking about all kinds of things from cooking up our favorite comfort foods, getting to wear beautiful soft cool weather layers and  creating cozy inviting interiors as we get ready for the "hibernation season".

One thing I really like is antlers. There are obviously real and many many faux. I have bought two very good faux antlers and  had just the spot for one but unfortunately it will not work so I am scouring my home to find out where else I might use them.....have this mild obsession with antlers. Think the first time I fell in love with them is when I visited my aunts spectacular home in France and saw a limestone pair gracing their front door then once inside, they were in the gorgeous library, and then onto the kitchen.

While in France we were lucky to visit a few peoples homes and antlers seemed to be de rigour. I took notice and  made some personal notes. Antlers have become a pretty hot item, both faux and real. My latest thought is  I think I want to place them possibly above my stone hood in my kitchen and possibly in the family room at some point. Whats your opinion on them? Do you like them? I like that you now see them not only in very traditional interiors but modern and transitional ones as well...this decorative element though classic is proving it has a fun and funky side too......
