Get the Look: 45 Faux Animal Heads

If yesterday’s post showcasing 29 interiors with faux animal heads inspired you, allow me to help you do a little shopping. The range of faux animal heads (or animal head trophies, animal head mounts, animal head plaques, animal head wall sculptures, or whatever you prefer to call them) is kind of incredible.

There are painted porcelain and tapestry textile heads created by fine artists, papier mache animal heads by artisans in Haiti, resin models done in neon brights with glittery antlers, metal animal heads. animal trophies made of cardboard, and a plethora of plush models meant for kids. I found a blow up unicorn head (what my 7th grade self would have given for one of those) and a modern wire geo-style animal head sculpture. There’s even an artist creating animal head sculptures out of upcycled farm equipment.

The variety of faux animal heads means you can hang one pretty much anywhere, in any style room. It’s hardly cabins-only decor. Here are 45 cute ones from StyleCarrot partners and other vendors.

Get the Look: 25 Woven Baskets

I have a storage bin problem—I have so many that I need storage bins for my storage bins. Ridiculous. That said, I’m not really a woven basket person. I can appreciate the art, but I’m not really into them. I have noticed, however, in the last couple of years, that superior examples have been in the spotlight. (Obviously Pier 1’s inventory is forever strong.) With the emphasis on fair trade, back-to-basics, artisans, and the craft renaissance, they’ve been more prominent from a design angle. Interestingly, although they are artsy, they sometimes go hand-in-hand with the industrial aesthetic, as the raw and rustic intersect. Perhaps I should do a Montage, but in the meantime, here’s a shopping roundup of 25 woven baskets, from mass-produced to antiques to those created by African artisans and American artists.
