Animal Heads by Fiona Walker
A nursery or bedroom can be so much fun to design + style. Elements of whimsy + unexpected surprises can be integrated in ways not always possible in other rooms of the home. Etsy is an amazing source for wall decor, and has become my go-to resource for all things decor. A recent trend hitting nurseries and bedrooms are adorable wall busts: “faux taxidermy.” And decor-enthusiasts have a love/hate relationship with the latest phenomenon: we either LOVE it, or it just creeps us out. When done right, faux taxidermy can bring a fun and whimsical sensibility to your little one’s space. Mounted individually as a focal point, or within a gallery wall, there are so many options (and price points) to choose from.
Below, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite “friendlier” versions that won’t scare you (or your little one) out of the bedroom.
1. Princess Swan. Happy Head Toys. Etsy. $80.48. 2. Rhino Trophy. Woodland Imports. Wayfair. $98.99. 3. White Rabbit Felt Animal Head. Fiona Walker England. West Coast Kids. $139.99. 4. Ram Felt Head. Fiona Walker England. Rosenberry Rooms. $165 USD. 5. Unicorn Head Wall Decor. Pillowfort for Target. Target. $19.44. 6. Unicorn Head. White Faux Taxidermy. Etsy. $128.22. 7. Wicker Look White Elephant. Zeckos. Houzz. $79.99. 8. Deer Head Wall Decor. Near and Deer. Wayfair. $158.99.
And let us not forget the sultry + sweet deer head from the talented Tamar Mogendorff (a little out of my budget, but really and truly a work of art).
Where do you sit on the faux taxidermy continuum? Do you love them or do they frighten you? I’d love to hear!
