CURRENT OBSESSION – WHITE FAUX TAXIDERMY


I am a firm believer in conversation pieces.  They are a necessary focal point in any room and, if you are able to maintain a sense of humor during the decorating process, they can be a source of constant enjoyment.  I was looking for the perfect accent pieces to finish up my office and I came across Franklin, the gold resin deer head.  Immediately, without giving it a second thought, I purchased him.  As I perused the rest of the White Faux Taxidermy shop on Etsy, I realized that I had to buy a couple more things on impulse {I bought Fitz & Bex below}.  Now… I can’t stop smiling. Check out some of the incredible {courageous & funny} pieces.

Hey, A Girl Can Dream…

I may not be able to afford an entire living room from one of my interior design obsessions… Jayson Home & Garden (yet)… but that won’t stop me from trying.  I mixed and matched a few pieces to put together a compilation of my ideal living room.  Feminine enough, yet rustic.  Refined, yet comfortable.  Chic, yet timeless.  And just enough quirky elements to give the room some character.  I’m sure my idea of an ideal living room will change daily (like my other style choices)… but that’s a chance I’m willing to take.

Room Lust – Office

Mind you, my office is in a nook… So I need high impact and lots of organization in a small space.  Currently, the nook is in a state of flux and in desperate need of being redesigned.

I have what I need at this point (a million zebra print pens, my 27″ iMac, a vintage chalkboard, and always always always a crystal vase with pink roses from the local Farmer’s Market)… But I want it to be perfect as this is where I spend most of my workday.  I think that wallpaper and a few bold statement pieces are the perfect solution.

1. Simply Shabby Chic Classic Computer Desk $269.99
Simple with a ton of space. Perfect for working on my blog… and my book(s).
2. Simply Shabby Chic Crystal Candlestick Table Lamp $44.99
Perfect for providing light (and sparkle) into the wee small hours of the morning… when I do my best work.
3. Paeonia Wallpaper $148
Color, design, and impact. Great for making a tiny space pop.
4. Bird and Floral Print Slipper Chair $299.99
I’ve never been a big believer in the standard ergonomic desk chair. Give me something cozy and a fabric with some personality.
5. Doily Rug $598
Adorable way to define your space. And the correct space in which to use a circular rug.
6. Monogrammed Mug, Missus “K” $3.95
Don’t let anyone steal your coffee mug.
7. Provencal Biscuit Canister $28
Do something unexpected by hiding your pens in a jar intended for the kitchen.
8. Costume Jewlry Magnets $32
I have a metal filing cabinet that I painted an antique white next to my desk.  These feminine magnets could be used on the metal surface in a stylish way.
9. Tocca Boed Candles – Cleopatra $36
Scent can be really inspiring.  Especially a scent named Cleopatra (I mean, come on, sex goddess and woman ruler).
10. Flowering Twig Pencil $5
With a pencil this pretty, there is no excuse to jot down your thoughts.
